    Lightbulb BIZARRE Xoom charging issue I haven't heard of before, anywhere!

    My Xoom has a weird issue:
    1. I plug it into the charger (I often have to wiggle the plug a little before the red light comes on that seems to indicate it's charging). I am using a Nook Tablet charger because all the chargers I have tried only work for a couple weeks. I started with the Xoom charger, then tried the dock, bought a new Xoom charger which crapped out after a couple weeks, then an HP Thinkpad charger, and now I'm using the Nook Tablet charger. I suspect it will only charge my Xoom for a couple weeks before I need to get a different one again.
    2. The light turns white eventually (not green) and the battery indicator is at 100%.
    3. The Xoom will not charge again until it is completely discharged, but dies slower while plugged in.
    4. Sometimes it will not charge again for a few days.
    5. It will not charge in the Xoom dock.
    What the hell is going on? Once it's charged, the battery life is nmormal.

    Today it is charging even though it isn't fully discharged. It hasn't done that with any other charger, only the Nook Tablet charger.

    The chargers on the OG Xoom and the Xoom 2 are a known issue. If you're still in warranty you might give Motorola a call.

    No, it isn't under warranty. Is mine an OG Xoom or Xoom 2?

    If it's the MZ505 it's the media edition xoom I believe.
