Why do I still need a mains charger?

Question:

Q. With my new Nokia N85 now using USB charging, why do I still need a mains charger? This phone came with both!

Answer:

A. USB charging is nice to have and convenient for many people, but the USB port on your PC usually can't offer enough current to fast charge a phone. A mains charger should be your primary charging method, with USB providing a little extra 'trickle' charge when you're hooked up for data transfers anyway.
