    I plugged my phone in last night around 10:30. While it was plugged in I played angrybirds for a bit. Fell asleep and woke up this morning at 7:00 and the phone was at 99%. I checked email and took a shower and around 7:20 it finally reached 100%.

    I have no idea how fast it got to 99% or how long it was at 99% but 7+ hours to reach full charge seems weird. Should I be concerned?

    No, it's perfectly normal. It charges to around 80% quickly then trickle charges up to 100% then down and then back up to 100%, so what you probably found was you looked at your phone when it was de-charging a bit.

    thanks. I don't know that I have ever noticed a device drop below 100% while plugged in, but then again I have never really paid that much attention to it. Pretty sure my laptop has never dropped below 100% once it reaches that number while plugged in.
