    I am noticing a longer charge time with my 3Gs than I experienced with my 3G. Anyone else notice this? I know the 3Gs's battery is technically bigger, but not by much. I remember my battery charging within an hour's time. Now it seems to take about two hours to get a full charge on my 3Gs. I could be crazy.... :p

    Took over 2 hours to charge a 3GS to 100% at my house last night. The last 3% took at least 30 minutes.

    Two hours for a 100% recharge of the 3GS (using the Apple charger) sounds just about right. It's also a good idea to leave it charging for an additional hour or so.

    From USB or the wall plug? (the latter is much faster.)

    I tend to find it take a minute per %, until it hits ther nervous nineties, where it will often take more than 4 days to complete the last 6/7 percent. (Thats an exaggeration but it does slow up a lot, maybe 30 mins for the last 6 percent).

    The two hours was from a wall plug, and it was the only thing plugged into that wall AFAIK.

    It was probably more like 2.5 hours but it's a relatively new phone so that may have something to do with it. :confused: The last 3% literally did take 25 minutes... if the whole charge were that slow it would take almost 14 hours for the whole thing :p
