I've tried a couple of cheap micro-USB car chargers and both seem to cause the battery to discharge rather than charge. Charge remaining percentage falls rapidly, e.g. from 45% to 15% in just a few minutes.

Anyone got one which definitely charges their g300?

I have a similar problem with a cheap mains charger, yet others can charge with that ok (mostly Blackberry handsets for them). The original charger and an old SF charger both work fine with the g300 so I've assumed it's down to voltage or current deficiencies but I've no idea.

I've been using this one and it works really well. Low profile as well so fits nicely.

I've just found exactly the same thing. My phone was on 41% so I connected my car charger and then 10minutes later it was down to 24%. When I checked the phone status it said it was charging on AC.

Very strange as this is the same car charger I've been using for my Blade for the last 18 months with no problems.

I grabbed a dual USB charger from Asda recently, says i-box on it, £7, actually seems to charge the phone, or at worst maintain the charge with lots running.

Even using the supplied mains charger I have noticed the charge level indicated sometimes goes down substantially after I plug in the charger. I think this is a phone bug and the battery is not really discharging - a few minutes later it will jump back up by over 20% in one go. Just yesterday I plugged the mains charger in with the phone showing about 60% charge. A few minutes later I got the 29% charge warning. Two minutes later it was back at 64%.

I do have a USB car charger which I have had for a few years and it seems to charge the phone fine.

I don't think I've ever seen the behaviour from the mains charger, but I have had that charge recovery, rarely.

The sum of the problems with this phone sometimes has me regretting buying it...

At least for me, none of the annoying "quirks" come near to making me regret buying the phone. Glad I finally turned off the warning when switching from Wi-fi to mobile though. That was really driving me nuts until I edited build.prop

Yes, that one is madness, but the killer for me is the frequent crashing back to factory defaults, that's kind of unworkable. If Vodafone do the right thing and replace it instead of just reinstalling 885 when I send it back this time then maybe it'll turn out OK.

Well I've never (touch wood) had a crash back to factory defaults (I think I've maybe had one crash of any kind in two months or so I've owned it). If it was like yours, I'd be at Vodafone too for a replacement or my money back. Hope you can persuade them. Edited by Hogweed

Add in the frequent phone app hang/FC, occasional bubble behind the glass and crunchy case noises... Other than that it's terrific :D
