    Post Motorola Xoom connector at the bottom

    I saw a connector between the HDMI and the AC/DC charger connector at the bottom of the Motorola xoom (2 little metal plate types). Is that for the charging of the xoom through the docking station use? If so, which side is + (positive) and which side is - (negative)? Is that also 12V and 1.5A?

    Yes its for charging through the dock. Don't know about the rest.

    Yeah, the docks have two little pins that make contact with the plates when the xoom is docked, thus providing the charge

    charging contact polarity

    The pad closest to the 2.0 mm diameter coaxial power jack (an asinine size choice) is + 12 VDC, while the pad closest to the USB jack is the ground. I checked with a voltmeter while the power plug was connected and charging the unit.

    Regards,
