Re: Very slow Charge time

Is this through a wall charger or a computer, if the later, that's normal, it will take quite a bit

Re: Very slow Charge time

Charging though USB port of PC is dependent on Power Output, The Current output of Z1 Charger is 1.5A while USB port of PC gives only 0.5A current output. Thats the reason for slow charging.

Re: Xperia Z1 battery charge time

I'm using the iPad 12W charger, it still takes 3 hours. Perhaps this is due to the large battery in Z1.

Re: Xperia Z1 battery charge time

Can we use 2 amp charger for z1 instead of 1.5 amp provided by the company ?
