Nokia Lumia 1020 Battery charging issue

I have a new Nokia Lumia 1020 and really like it but I've noticed some strange battery charging issues a couple of times.

 

Usually I plug in my phone's charging cable and from a 50% charge, a couple of hours later, it's at a 100% charge.

 

However, a couple of times, after more than two hours, it seems stuck at 95%. Then last night I plugged in my phone at a 50% charge and went to sleep. A full EIGHT hours later it was only at 74%.

 

I left the phone plugged in and checked the battery settings and verified that it was at 74%. Battery saver has never been on for this phone. I didn't change any settings and left the phone alone. An hour later I checked again and the phone was at 100%.

 

Does anyone have any idea of what's going on here? Why does the phone seem to charge so inconsistently? Are there any settings I can change to fix this?

 

Any information would be appreciated.

This is the battery app: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/battery/c8e96f8e-cda1-4e25-b628-e934815b25cb

 

I use this on my 920, it's very handy

I find on my 1020 the battery level indicator can freeze up. When I reboot the phone after charging it indicates a full charge.
