Re: Bold 9930 charging reaaally slow

The charger you're using, is this an OEM charger which came with the 9920, or what?

What is the "mAh" rating on the charger?

Re: Bold 9930 charging reaaally slow

jeffmangum,, you need to use a original blackberry charger,OEM, a aftermarket one would take along time to charge, talking from experience, don't use cheap charges.which can damage your phone power ic or the battery.good luck ` hope this helps , the specs of the charger need to be checked out. What `mah` it is..has to be input 100-240V -150ma...output 5V ~750MA

Well, use a different and higher rated charger. Find one with 5v and at least 750 mAh output.
