    I came back from vacation and found that when I charged over night it still wasn't charged overnight. Tried charging it in the morning and it was barely charging more than 1%every 5 minutes.
    Can anyone help me with this.

    Are you using the original charger and cable that came with your device? Have you tried rebooting?

    The Priv is capable of fast charging.
    But the problem is that BlackBerry doesn't supply you with a fast charger.
    It's only a slower standard charger that come with the phone.

    Original charger AND original cable needs about 2 hours to charge the phone for me from about 10-15% to 100%

    You should be using a charger that outputs at least the same amount of MAh.

    Like other posters have said, get yourself a QC 2.0 charger.

    Or if you can score a PlayBook charger, those are really good too.

    The Priv stock charger is 1.3 mah output.

    What some consider smart charge or standard quick charge is usually up around 1.7 to 2.0 mah output.

    QC 2.0 fast charge is 2.0 mah or higher output.

    With having experienced all 3, I can say 1.3 is the slowest and the QC 2.0 is the fastest.

    1.3 mah charger is only 0.3 mah higher than a 1.0mah car charger. Which in most cases 1.0mah isn't enough to charge a phone while in use. Especially while running GPS and screen on.

    But 1.7mah and higher usually is enough to charge a phone while in use.

    Hope this helps some.

    Anker QuickCharge is amazing. Buy one, it's cheap and your phone will charge super quickly.
