I just experienced almost the same thing! The battery on my torch has been losing power very quickly, lately. Only held a charge for about 3-4 hours. This weekend I went on a road trip and used my Navigator for the 1st time. I also just bought my car, so it was new to me also. Front lighter doesn't work, so I got a 10ft. 12V cord, plugged it into the back seat charger and put my phone on it, with a USB cable adapter. About an hour into my trip, I noticed my phone was hot! Took it off the charger and battery lost power within a 1/2 hour. I thought it might be the GPS, so I plugged it in again. About an hour and a 1/2 later, my phone was really hot, the batter died, and had to buy a new battery! Now my phone will not charge at all, without taking the battery out and putting it on a desk charger!
I have no idea what caused this! Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

I've discovered the problem, at least in my case, is the phone gets warm in my vehicle and there is apparently something built into the Blackberry to stop charging when the phone exceeds a certain internal temperature.
