It was almost exactly one year ago I had a thread on here about my battery draining fast. After all the posts, I ended up sending it in. If I remember correctly, they replaced the charger board. This was under warranty then. Well.. It looks like it is doing it again. I have watched a teardown video of this phone. I have faith that I can do this myself. So, I have ordered the charger board, and a new battery. Am wondering if I should get another board or two to keep on hand if this is something that goes out..... I know it isn't recommended, but I have the phone on charge all night. I have it playing music thru external speakers, and I have it displaying a clock, set to red all night too, so I can see the time at any time. I am guessing that being plugged in all night may have an effect on the charger board? And perhaps battery too?
... Oh, am not using the ZTE charger when doing this, but an aftermarket charger that has 2 ports. One is for the rapid charge. I am NOT using that port when plugged in all night. I was thinking slow charge is just fine for that..
.... Any thoughts?
Attached is a screenshot from earlier... Now phone has been on for almost 2 hours, and am down to 77%
