As my experience is with the Pre2, I figured that it might be worth bringing my comment to the Pre2 forum, as the original thread was in the Pre/Pixi one.
Hi, just wanted to bring my take on this.
After several attempts to charge my Pre2 with cable, either with it's original plug (1A) or even with my Touchpad's (2A) I found that after a fair amount of time (a few hours) my phone would still be far from fully charged, but I'd make it home, placed it on the Touchstone and within 1/2 it would easily be much better charged, most time a full 100%.
So today, I did it again... forgot a Bluetooth active connection to my stereo headset that I was using with my Touchpad, and it drained the battery to 30%.
So I plugged it in and left it on for over ten minutes and when I checked, no change. I expected at least a 1-2 % increase, but nothing.
So I went and grabbed my Touchstone from my car, and plugged it in.
10 minutes and a full 10% increase up to 41% from 31%.
It's been about an hour now and I'm already at 98%.
So either I have a faulty micro-USB connection (I tried multiple cables) on my phone, even though it will eventually charge, and have no trouble to connect to a computer... so I wouldn't believe it to be faulty.
In case someone mentions that it's possibly a "over-powered" Touchstone... I have 3 Touchstones, and it's the same for all of them.
Just to say that I hate and avoid plugging my phone anyways (unless I have to to upload videos/musics) so it's no biggy, but it's still interested for me to see such a huge difference.
