However, there have been reports that the charging time is considerably improved with the docking station. Good news! You may be wondering why that is. Well, it turns out the docking station has a more powerful charging port(24W) compared to the standard one including with the S3 (13W).

Its charger just isn’t very powerful. 🙁 Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
