I didn't know that it would still react differently with other 2 amp chargers...
Thank you for running that test! I will keep this posted!
FYI, HP made the charging of a TouchPad and it's charger a proprietary thing. After market or third party chargers rated at 2 amps will not charge at two amps as shown in Colchiro's test.

Another app you can try is Battery Monitor Widget. It will show you the actual charging rates as they happen. Be sure to set the battery capacity in settings/calibration to 6300 milliamps so the app correctly calculates your battery statistics. The history tab will show you a lot of good info as your are using the TP(discharging) and when charging the battery.

Also, just for the record, I actually had the cap part go bad on mine. Luckily, it was still under warranty and HP replaced it.
