    I have a Nokia Lumia 1520, which was working fine prior to the latest update by Nokia. Whenever I put the phone in the charger overnight, it doesn't charge fully.
    How do you know your phone is not charging? unplug the charger from the phone and go to setting and tape on battery saver. Under battery info, time since last charge should be 1 hour or less.

    Fix number one: Use a different USB charger that does not have a detachable USB cable, such as the one that came with the Nokia 520 or other cheap charger from other manufacturers. These cheap chargers do not allowed the phone to go to battery service mode, therefore; you can let it charge overnight. always check the time since last charge after every charge and make sure it's always 1 hour or less.

    Fix number two: If you are still using the original USB Charger that came with the Lumia 1520 with the detachable USB cable, do not charge your phone overnight. If you charge your phone overnight, the battery will enter service mode after it's fully charged. This means that the phone will start depleting and charging the battery back and forth. For any given time, DO NOT CHARGE YOUR PHONE FOR MOERE THAN 3 HOURS AT A TIME.
    if you want to charge your phone for more than three hours, you must unplug it every three hours.

    After every charge, make sure that your battery info for time last charge is 1 hour or less. If it's more than 1 hours, the phone is not charging correctly. Therefore, you need to start cutting the charging time to less than 3 hours increment until you find the right spot.

    hey welcome to wpcentral forums
    Thanks for sharing this with us , I usually charge my Lumia 920 at 6 A.M(alarm on my Lumia 920 wakes me up ) and I put my phone on charger , morning walk , shower breakfast and some quick mail reply , by 8:30 / 9 I have a daily routine now to unplug my Lumia 920 from cable and I see what's the last time its been charging and its less than one hour and estimated time is usually 22 hour to 1 day.(I never let my battery over charge , I did once and the battery backup on that day was horrible , instant battery drain while making a 5 min call.

    Never had a problem with my 1520. Put it on the PMA pad when I go to sleep, 7 hours later I take it off.. And then do it again that night. Most of the time I am at 50% or more, unless I really use the phone a lot. Then it might go down to about 35%. Did this for every smartphone I had. The 920, The One, the Note 2, except for the dumbphone I had, then I would plug it in ever 3 or 4 days. If needed I could make even the worse phone to hold a charge (The Galaxy S3) last all day. But if it had a replaceable battery, I normally kept a spare with me.

    Thanks for the greeting.
    You have been doing the right thing all along. Some chargers can handle overnight charging and other can't. it comes down to software bugs. charging in increment seems to work best, regardless of the devices.

    Always charge my phones over night, never had an issue. Before the last update I was getting upwards of 3 days on a single charge. Now its down to 1 - 2 days, whatever that damn update broke.
