    Bush Spira won't charge properly

    Bought a Spira B2 tablet and after 7hrs the charge did 70%. Once it eventually gets to 90% it slows way down, it said 28min left to full charge... That was 5hrs ago. Dodgy battery or dodgy tablet?

    The last 10% can takes a while as it slows up towards the end. Make sure your charger is a 2amp not a 1amp phone charger. It will take twice as long with a 1amp charger.

    try a different cable aswell, yours could have degraded over time. And make sure the cable is the thicker 24awg one as 28awg (thinner wire) will limit the amount of juice the battery gets

    It's brand new, tried multiple wires and plugs just won't go past 92%

    I think it's just a dodgy battery.

    Replied to you on the Spira deal post but it sounds like a battery fault to me too.
