I did a 6 hour ride this afternoon and had no problems. I think it's been the cheap shitty cable I've been using. The new one is no more expensive, but it allows a fast charge of my Nexus 4.

Is it unreasonable to expect the phone to at least maintain the charge with GPS, wifi, and screen on if it's receiving sufficient power?
