    Has anyone else had this issue? I've tried searching all kinds of different terms but came up empty.

    This is my second Band 2 that has issues when charging, the screen goes crazy when an alert (email/text etc) is received. It's like a ghost is just randomly pressing the screen and making all kinds of changes. If I don't put it on 'Do Not Disturb' when charging, I never know what I'm going to come back to. It's turned the alarm on, put it in airplane mode and even done a factory reset twice.

    Has anyone else experienced this when your Band 2 is charging? It's driving me crazy!

    Hi there,

    Please try plugging your band into a different place to charge. If you are currently plugging it into a PC, try a wall wart, if you are currently using a wall wart, please try a different one or try using a PC.

    A touch screen going crazy is a common problem with cheap chargers. They crank out too much noise and it's confuses the screen.

    Generally the chargers that come with phones or tablets are pretty good. But the drug store ones ..... you do get what you pay for.

    This is my first guess. I've had cheap chargers that did some very unusual things...

    This thread actually made my team start regaling stories of side effects they've seen from bad chargers. :)

    I hope none of them involved letting the magic smoke escape.

    Best story was of a USB hub that, when used, emitted so much RF it made all wireless devices in the office unusable.
