    So I noticed that the charger that came with my sister's Lumia 710 (Nokia AC-10E) was faster at charging my phone then the one that came with my Lumia and thought that I'd share my findings with you guys. I bought myself one of those from eBay for 7.50 euros and tested my theory.
    I emptied the phone to 10% (when I got the battery critical message), turn on airplane mode (to not have a difference in push notifications) and turned off the phone.
    I then plugged the phone to the charger, and came back after an hour. Here are the results.

    As you can see there's a major difference in charging speeds: 67% per hour with the AC-10E vs 48% per hour for the original charger.

    So the mid-class L710 has a faster charger than the high end L920? interesting...

    Slower charging always helps battery life, as the Lumia's 920 battery is not user replaceable , Neither Nokia nor you should risk its life.

    Are there any specs on the charger? What is the amp output? It will be on the tiny sticker on the chargers themselves. The higher that number, the faster it will recharge.
