Hm, strange, the rockbox charger shouldn't be _that_ bad. It's been
improved a lot lately, but if you still see that kind of performance...

The charger logic code only runs once every minute, and the
"charging/trickle/not charging" status changes only on the minute, as it
doesn't poll the charging plug/voltage any more often. This is the reason
for the above. It is not to be worried about (although it is a little
confusing that charging doesn't start right after you plug in the charger,
this does not affect the charging performance).
