Yes, that's what happened. You are correct.

As I stated, the charger's rating is 2.5A. I assume it's real rating but just in case I will try to figure out tonight how much current it can deliver.

EDIT: The reason I assume it's real is because I bought it from a shop specialized in single board computer accesories (RPI and others) and because it is pretty heavy compared to other chargers I own which say they deliver 2A but do not go past 500mA.

What is the model of charger you'r using?
Some Raspberry pi chargers have been reported not to work (for an unknown reasons)
See here :

It's a Probattery FASW-053100F. I just google'd it and it turns out it's marketed as a 3.1A power supply, however it was sold to me as a 2.5A power supply (and it says so in the provided specs on the brick). I'll test another 2A charger (a portable one) and I'll also try to get ahold of a USB multimeter to check things out.
