    Average battery charging time?

    I think I been having some problems charging my galaxy s3. takes average 45minutes to charge 25% of the battery. So thats 3hours going from 0% to 100%. Is your galaxy s3 charging faster or no?
    Im using the standard 5v, 1amp wall charger w/ micro usb that came with it in the box.

    Mine is about that. 3 hours usually when it's pretty much dead.

    Welcome to the forum !
    The manual says it takes four hours to charge completely from a dead state, so you're about right on.

    Wouldn't it be easier just to buy another battery with charger and swap them out they don't have to wait?

    Are you sure the rest of the phone can take a 1C charge?

    This won't make it charge any faster than using a 1a charger, such as the stock charger.

    This. It would cost about the same to buy a new battery.

    I will turn off all running apps, clear out any standing notifications (e-mails, texts, missed calls, V.M.'s, etc), shut down the screen to the black screen saver when I need a faster charge.

    It definitely charges noticeably quicker that way, but I don't have any timed stats for you, sorry.
    Just turning the screen off helps, if you leave it on it's kind of counter intuitive as it'll be draining the battery while it's while it's charging.

    This might be an obvious question: Does the phone charge faster if the if it's turned all of the way off and plugged into an electrical outlet (vs USB)?

    Re: Average battery charging time?

    Welcome to the forum Barb!
    I would think it would charge a bit faster with the phone turned completely off, since nothing is running in the background, email isn't syncing etc.
