Hey all.
I've noticed today that while I have my phone plugged in and charging it is still slowly losing battery power when using KIK heavily.

Anyone have an explanation for this?
Thanks.

I don't know about KIK but I do know that some apps drain more power than charging puts in. On my drive to work, 1 hour commute, if I use Waze the phone loses 10% - 12% battery while on the charger.

thats because the charger on the car probably is recognized as a usb plug and not an ac charger, so it might consume way more than it can provide(500mah)
