    Have you been using an official charger for your device, like Samsung make and everything?

    Sometimes chargers are device specific even though they all use the Micro USB port, like I know sometimes my Gnex is pretty specific.

    Otherwise it could be some bent pins within your device that would cause the device to not be able to charge.

    Sounds like the adapter thing is broken. Have you tried a different charger?
