Had my phone for weeks, working fine, but today I go to charge it via USB like I always do and it just sits there on 6% forever but still says "charging".  I then unplug it and it jumps up to around 15%!

Clearly something is up with the phone, I have turned it off and taken out the battery to no avail.  Only think I have changed is install beatiful widgets since the last time I charged and everything was OK.

Any ideas?

OK so it wouldn't boot so I plugged in the USB and took out the battery, it then keep flashing the Huawei logo for 2 secs then repeating. So then I put the battery in and I got it to boot. Now seems to be charging... from 0 to 2% and it says its charging. The red light is solid.

I know that USB chargers often dont have enough grunt to supply sufficient power to charge the units. This is especially true of laptop models. My Ipad for example does not charge on USB and another example would be the kindle that charges VERY slowly on the USB compared o USB wall socket. Plug it into the wall socket and see if the more grunt fixes your problem! Are the X5's even meant to be charged via USB? Or is that more for synchronizing etc?

Cheers will try it on the wall socket when I get home.  About 3 hours now and its on 6%.... haha.  Charged fine using this USB cable before though. 

The cable is a $2 one from Trademe though... I bought a different cheap TM one for my gf and she reckoned her Nokia stopped charging with it after like a week.  Hopefully thats just the problem and the battery is fine.
