I fixed the problem by switching cables. I'm not sure why it displayed "charging" in Android, or how it actually managed to charge about 10% in 6 hours, but it seems to have worked now that I'm gaining about 10% every 5 to 10 minutes like normal.

To be honest I think that its affected by the voltage on the USB port. Some ports are only .5V while others are 1V.
my phone is also running on cyanogen and unfortunately I have the same problem, this problem may be due to kernel. here is the solution which I use also. buy an extra charger of different model say htc and use this charger till it's charging well, then use the original charger.repeat the procedure if necessary. it sounds so strange but works luckily.
Lithium batteries were invented to avoid the issue of the 80% charge on the balance of power.... Charging at anytime has NO effect on the battery... Older batteries could only charge 80% ow the empty cycle...but NOT true with Lithium ion or polymer batteries... Charge anytime, any amount...no problem
Removing the battery and putting it back in solves the problem, at least temporarily. A few days later, I found the same problem was happening, and the same solution worked.
I'm not aware of any way to find out the maximum current the device will use except checking the charger that came with the device and assuming that the manufacturer suppied the most efficient charger suitable. The maximum current for USB connection is 5A, but usually the range used by phone/tablet chargers is between 0.5A and 2A. Note that the amperage ...
Yes, it is fine to charge a device with a higher current charger. You can think of current like the device pulling rather than the charger pushing. The device will only take as much current as it wants regardless of how much the charger is capable of supplying.

The battery may be ok. I had this problem and fixed it. 1) Plug the phone into a charger. 2) The pins get loose, so press the battery towards the pins and press the on button. 3) Once the phone starts to boot up, you can take the pressure off and replace the back onto the phone. Whoolahhh!
