***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

In the battery settings on the phone does it say it is charging via AC or USB? Are you using the charger that came with the phone? Have you tried a different charger or USB cable?

We want to get down to the bottom of the issues with charging your device, Sandracalhoun65. Are you using the original charger that came with the device? Have you tested different outlets?

Sandra,

what was the resolution?  i am experiencing the same issues.  the only charger that will work now is the Turbo Charger.  All other chargers, that have worked for the past 10 months, no longer work and actually drain the battery.

thank you!

TIMETAO -

An important accessory to any phone is a working charger. I am disappointed to learn that you're having trouble with keeping your battery charged. You mentioned you're using a Turbo Charger but what kind of phone is it? How quickly is the battery draining? How long does it take to charge?

Keep us posted!

Eric,

I have the Droid Turbo 2. The turbocharger works perfectly unfortunately

the battery drains very very quickly. All of the Chargers that they use

that are not Turbo have been using in the past Now drain the battery rather

than charge it. Every sense the last update the phone is [Removed].

Very disappointed

Tim
