So today ive noticed my iphone 5C seems to be charging like really slow.... i am using a non apple usb charging lead but an apple plug i'm using a polaroid charging lead... i dont think this is the problem as i've been using this lead for like a few months and no issues..... just seems to be today.... im not sure whats wrong with my phone.... other than it seems to be this issue of it charging like really slow....... has anyone else had this problem or know how i can fix this problem.. im not using my phone while its charging... i've tried different plugs etc including my mums iphone charger.... which is the real iphone lead... and im still having the exact same problem.... help?

update: its just come up telling me 'the charger you are using is not compatible. and may cause issues '

i dont understand this at all as ive been using the same charger for the past few motnhs how can a charger suddenly become not compaitble?

I had issues with my last charger, after a couple of months it really kinda just stop working, making my phone charge slow and whatnot. I would have to plug it in and out and replug it in over and over until it started charging. You may just need a new charger? I had to go out a buy a new one after it stopped working all together.

I find if I use non apple products it takes a while to charge. A trick you can try, is to put it in airplane mode while it's charging. This does work to make it charge a bit faster

I've been having to do this sometimes.

My phone charges faster when I leave it alone. I understand the need to use it even while it's charging, but I suggest trying to not use it as much while it's charging. Because you are draining the battery while it's charging at the same time. It's best to leave it be.

I would try to use a different charging cord preferably an apple one or try switching the way you insert it. I find that if you use non apple, they either charge slowly or don't charge. My mum bought a cord from Walmart when we were away because hers broke and they didn't have the apple brand so she used a different one. That one didn't charge if it was in one direction (it would drain the battery!) If she flipped it around, it would charge but really slowly.

Also, airplane mode does help it charge faster and don't use it while it's charging.

I bought a new charger yesterday - it seems to be working and me phone seems to be charging like a bit quicker than it was. the battery doesnt seem to last as long as it used too though.... and the battery will drain quicker than it used too.... the batterys been draining quicker it used to for like a couple of weeks though.

Hello there iPhone user, i have read all the replies to your initial blog so there's not much else i can say other than if you are like me and hate waiting for a phone to charge (similarly to watching paint dry as they say) then buy the charger outlet that Apple gives to you when you purchase one of their newest iPad models. You'll notice that this outlet looks much different to the one that is damn near impossible to remove from the wall. Hope this helps.
