Charging an iPhone 4 through USB takes 30 minutes longer than using a wall charger

Charging an iPhone 4 through USB takes 30 minutes longer than using a wall charger
If you happen to find yourself in a rush to get out of the door as soon as possible and want to make sure you have a full battery on hand with your iPhone 4, you might want to charge it via the included wall charger. Apparently it takes an average of 23 percent longer to charge it through a USB port on a computer or some sort as opposed to using a wall charger. In the real world, this means that you'll be spending an additional 30 minutes waiting for your handset to top up to the max through a USB port instead of tethering it to your wall outlet. Unless time is something that's precious to you, it probably shouldn't bug you too much – but as with most other devices, the fastest way to completely charge your handset is probably through an outlet.

Well you could tell from the title that it obviously wouldn't be important to you (a Droid user) so why did you waste your time? You guys are attracted to the word "iPhone" like flies. I think this article is more useful than "HTC isn't budging just yet to get into the tablet market" but I guess you thought it was breaking news.

I think both articles were important, but I think by bored he meant it was common knowledge. Either way, I read EVERY article, so your post about "You guys are attracted to the word "iPhone" like flies." is without merit. I'm assuming from your comment that you read the tablet article to. Would I be accurate to say "You guys are attracted to the word "Droid" like flies."? Additionally to fully appreciate a product you really have to understand what the competition is doing, a lot of Droid users would jump ship if the iPhone was to be released on Verizon and offer every feature and then some that the Android does. Most Android users state they use Android, because the phone they have purchased meets their needs and wants more so then competative phones.

It's obvious E.N. is in here to defend just in case, as his comment was equally as pointless as the one before his. I think I remember an article where you said that YOU were an Android user also, but its fine that your prowling and trying to sound intellectual with your snobby piss ass attitude. Way to be the elephant in the room no body can poke fun because your the moderator of gayness.

I read every article regardless it being about Android or not and I comment when I want to. And yeah I have a Droid but that doesnt mean I can't be intersted in other platforms. I actually like the iPhone 4.

EN is referring to how every Droid humper is quick to post negative comments in EVERY SINGLE iPHONE ARTICLE. Most people probably read most articles, but don't feel the need to leave rants and raves of negativity in all of them like the Apple haters. The original comment here wasn't necessarily negative, but it's the start to all the Droid vultures around here...

You can charge it 63% faster if you insert the USB cable in Steve Jobs ASS.
