Plug icon vs. lightning bolt while charging?
I've seen a couple of threads talking about "charging while the plug icon is displayed".
I've noticed that the same charger will sometimes show the lightning bolt and sometimes show the plug icon. Just curious what the difference is between the two and can you control which icon (or type of charge) is used?

Sounds like a bug if you're seeing the plug before the phone is fully charged--my understanding has always been that the bolt will show while charging, then the icon will switch to the plug when the battery is fully charged.
But I did see a post about extending your battery charge somewhere on here where someone suggested letting the battery go from 100% to 95% and then charge it using the "plug icon". (And then there was some debate about it decreasing the life of your battery overall.) I never noticed the icons before then and now I am wondering why one shows up or the other.

Re: Plug icon vs. lightning bolt while charging?
I DON'T think so. When charged it shows a green battery. The plug means it needs to be plugged in. The lightning bolt means it's charging. Unless I'm an ***** that's the way my phone works
