My s3 has developed a problem, it says it is charging when plugged into the mains but loses charge constantly. If I use a usb charger at work it charges perfectly. Does anyone know how to change this?

Both my mum in law and fil s3s done this and they sent them off to voda. They said they couldn't find anything up with them. However they came back with new chargers and now work fine.

That's really weird.
There's no reason why one type of charger should work and not another.

Another stupid question but have you tried different plug sockets/does the USB charger work in the same socket the normal one doesn't?
