    All,
    I ran my battery down (in yellow) in the course of occasional activity over my first day. Never turned it "off" just simple tap on the power to turn off the screen.

    I have started charging it with the USB but just after an hour is seems a little slow about 1/4 green. I've switched it over to the house plug.

    Anyone else have any good idea on charging time expectations? Is it faster with the 120 outlet vs the USB

    From what I have read, the Tab will only charge by USB if you cut it off. The 120 plug charges really fast for me. In 20 min it charges quite a bit.

    It finished charging in under 2 hrs I wasn't really watching too closely but the power outlet is the way to go.

    Thanks

    This is the reason why they went with the multi pin connector rather than the USB.

    USB takes FOREVER to charge a 4000mah battery.
