Good afternoon all,

Shortly after I got my HTC Desire a few weeks ago I ordered a car charger as I do a fair amount of driving. Used it initially with no trouble, plugged it into the 12V supply and the orange LED switched on confirming that the battery was recharging. But for a while now I have noticed that the battery will not charge if the phone switches to car mode. And despite trying to switch off the car mode, the phone will re-initiate it. Has anyone come across this, and could you suggest a way to get that fixed?

Thanks

Philippe

Car mode consumes a lot of juice... The GPS transciever is very power hungry. Couple that with the need for 3G data usage, and you get the idea Wink

Thank you for your answer. I do realise that the device is power-hungry, in fact I make sure to switch off every option that would not be required at a given time i.e. background data synchronisation, GPS etc... but still do not understand why it simply will not charge while plugged to the car charger? And is there any way of permanently disabling the car mode feature?

Regards

Er... if you have disabled those services, I think it should carry some charge...

But the thing is that the car charger has a much lower mAH rating, so the power gained is pretty much lost by usage...

I don't use Car Home, I commute... I can't help here because my ROM doesn't have that app.
