I have a ZTE ZMAX which is a popular phone at Walmart. I'm not sure if you guys from England have walmarts probably not.
Anyways, the usb cable kind of locks in place but I guess it's a little loose. If you move the phone just a little bit. It will stop charging. It's very frustrating because I'm stuck in deployment with a tiny bed and I keep my phone next to my face to make sure I wake up but when I wake up it hardly even charged! I use it as a alarm clock which makes it even more frustrating because it could possible that it could die.
I used my buddies USB cable same thing.
Looking at this video seems to be the best solution, but I don't have anything small enough to really fit yet.
Also the guy on utube video says to take the battery otherwise you could short circuit your phone. Unfortunately, they made this phone with a non-removable battery!

I was thinking about draining it all the way down to the phone turns off but I don't think that will put the battery to 0%
EDIT: Yeah yeah, I just saw the cell phone section in the lower part of the forum
