Battery Charging

Why does it take so long to charge the battery for my Xperia Z3? Once it's fully charged i'm quite satisfied with the amount of battery usage . I used to have the Z1 compact which I found had an excellent battery - quick to charge as well as a long life!
Anybody else having the same issue?

Re: Battery Charging

Is the Z3 new? If it is taking a while to charge in the beginning is normal. Also, are you using a wall charger or a computer to charge the phone?

Re: Battery Charging

It's not brand new. I bought it from a CeX store (webuy.com). I traded in my Z1 compact for it on Xmas eve. I am using a wall charger.

Re: Battery Charging

@Phy The answer lies in the standard wall charger that Sony supply with phone.If I use that one from 20% battery takes over 3 hrs.If I use a different charger takes about 2 hours.The Qualcomm 2.0 chargers are few and far between here in the UK
So if he needs to charge it quicker,that's what the OP needs.

@stockyvillage check this out http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z3-Compact/Qualcomm-Quick-Charge-2-0-for-UK-Z3C/m-p/894635/high...
Rickard posted: "The Z3 Compact does support Quick Charge 2.0 but we currently don't have any Quick Charge 2.0 charger on the market.
Note that if you want to use Quick Charge 2.0 over the magnetic connector the charging dock must also support Quick Charge 2.0. Our DK48 supports it."
