    Got my Tab 10.1 yesterday. Charged for an hour, then used - was about 50% charged. Let charge overnight with their cable, must b/c of the end, but my 120v to USB thing.

    This morning, it sits at only 48%. Charging now with their physical plug. Can I not use my 'plug' or is there perhaps something else awry here?

    Did you charge it via your PC or AC?

    I'm questioning if plugged to my PC if it trickle charges like the original galaxy tab?

    I think it only trickle charges on the pc and will not charge if you are using it while charging through pc (USB). I only charge it with the wall plug and never have any issues.

    Had been charging via a USB-120v plug, just not the one that came with the unit - one that came with one of my other many USB-charged devices and was already plugged in. Weird that it didn't charge to 100%. Swapping out the plug ends, it charged fine. Question is was this something special or is there something different in the two devices. Time will tell. It does take a charge though, which is good.
