At best I only get half bar of battery even after a full night of charging this is with a 2 different usb wall chargers( was not supplied with one from seller), and USB via PC. This morning after charging last night for about 8 hours, still only half bar, I left it to charge for the remainder of the day, hopefully I get full bars today.
P.S this both on firmware 1.0 and updating to 1.1, the game has yet to see a full bar of battery life since my using it of 6 days now.
Will try a different cable, I love this device but damn, the amount of fixing and fiddling its messing with my emotions.
Anyone else had this besides HammerHeart and fixed it? I been able to solve almost all my problems via the forums, I'm sure someone has over come this and knows the fix.....
UPDATE May 30th 2012 :
Ok I got it to charge full, not by leaving it charging over night via USB wall charger, or by PC usb. I brought it to work, and put it on a black and decker jumper car battery jumper that has provisions for charging USB devices.
It has since surpassed the half way mark i usually get at best, and it almost at full. I am hoping I have "jump" the memory of the lithium ion battery for the gemei and if I return to charging it via the wall charger I have at home that it will charge to 100% and not 50%.
UPDATE June 20th 2012 :
After testing various USB wall chargers this are my results:
Any charger 5v 500ma or below is a waste of time, it will never charge pass 1/3 of battery life, no matter how long it is plugged in, this testing with it charged 24 to 36 hrs, bar only gets to 1/3 in about 2 hours, and will not go any further.
Charging with a USB car charger will charge in about 4 to 6 hours from dead.
Charging with a car battery jumper pack with USB provisions will give same results as charging with a car charger.
Charging with an Apple Ipad USB OEM or OEM style charger will give you a complete charge in 2 hours tops. The spec of this charger is 5.1v 2.1a (2100ma).
