I thought I was getting away from this and the XOOM and it's lame proprietary charger, but this newly arrived Nexus 7 (which is peppy, I do like that) only seems to take a charge from it's USB charger (or the PC). This *stinks* because I use a built in wall charger by my bed, and I have a specific folding travel charger that I use on the road - neither charges the Nexus! So now I have to plug the proprietary USB charger in the wall by my bed (which then sticks out 4" requiring moving and rearranging furniture) and also pack it along with everything else for trips (just what I need -1 more thing!). *sigh* can't we all just get along on the USB and related USB functions??? GRRRRR! I am mad.
