    Have you never wondered what those two mysterious additional contacts on the Xoom are for? You know, the ones between the charger port & the HDMI port?

    Regarding the original post, the description is really generic--I'll bet that vendor has the exact same item under many listings with different phone names. The single rating points out its a data cable only. IMHO that listing borders on fraud.

    another thing i read somewhere about the xoom is even if you have 12v it has to output atleast 1a inorder to kick in the charge circuit and even if it trickled charged it wouldnt be good for the battery as lithium ion likes to be charged quick. even if you could magically make 5v overcome the 7.4v battery (which it cant) at 5v it would need to be around 5a! (just a guess) and thats pretending 5v can overcome 7.4v

    I just use plutonium (or the occational lighting strike) to generate the 1.21gigawatts needed to power my xoom.

    This is my Xoom. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my Xoom is Useless. Without my Xoom, I am Useless.

    Understand that the responsibility of the content of the seller pages on Amazon are from the seller (in this case "a days tech"), not from Amazon itself. Its no different from eBay. File a complaint against the seller to help people from getting screwed.
