Verizon 8X GDR2. Blinking Green and Red Light while charging?

This is probably the third time I've needed to charge my phone since getting gdr2. The first two times were fine in regards to the led light. Now, as I type this, my phone is charging at 25% battery and the led light is alternating red and green after about 4 seconds. I figured this was slowing down my phone's charging a lot, because after two hours my phone only went up 22% as opposed to before when it would be at 100% after two hours.

I just left my phone on the desk though. I didn't even use it for about 3 hours. Could be I guess, but it didn't feel hot when I picked it up occasionally while charging.

There's a bug then.. I just updated last night. Only time I see both flash is under heavy use or if its plugged in while in the sun.. Possibly let the battery cycle?? Let the phone die then recharge fully to reset the battery sensor software.. Best suggestion I have for ya
