Default Xoom 2 Power charger - another challenge

Having just the one charger is proving awkward when I have several for all my other equipment.
Any idea where can I gain one and how annoying not being able to use a USB cable. I have tried most of my other connectors but no charge despite it showing there is.
How pleased are other xoom 2 users with their new tablet? Is it just me who seems lukewarm towards it? Might ICS ease things somewhat like USB hosting as so far my Samsung SII phone outstrips it for usability. Sad!

This is probably just due to the current provided by the Xoom 2's charger. If you look closely, you can see that it provides a whopping 1.5A - far more than most phone chargers will provide (my charger only provides 150mA, 10% of that). Basically you'll want to look for a higher-current supply. The only other one I've got of a similar current is actually an in-car charger (cigar lighter socket). This does give the charger the rather nice property of letting me do a risky but very quick charge of my phone...

This one will probably do the trick if you're in the UK - 3 PIN 1500mA USB Power Adapter Mains Charger UK Wall: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Of course, the usual "Don't blame me when you break your tablet..." disclaimers apply here, but hopefully that information helps!
