10.1 Note Chargers: How Proprietary?
So far, every time I plug my 10.1's USB cord in to a power source besides the one that came with it, a red "X" appears over the battery. OTOH, my 5.3" note works with everything I've plugged it into. Charges faster on some, slower on others... and might be cooking the battery on some... but it always works.
But not the 10.1.
"OK, maybe it's the 2-amp thing... and these other chargers (inluding my desktop PC) are only delviering one."
But I just tried it with a generic automobile cigarette-lighter source that claims to deliver 2 amps - but got the same red "X".
What am I missing? Has Samsung done something proprietary with their charging scheme on this thing?

I think I have it: the boys and girls at Samsung have been playing games. At the behest of the marketing department? Dunno...
