    Beware of erratic wallcharger --

    Mine Won't charge or device won't recognize charger it will discharge battery instead of charging



    VZ tech sending replacement charger and battery

    Using Computer USB set at charge only for now it works

    Would like to find a good standalone battery charger to keep extra battery charged and just switch as needed any ideas where tofind one

    I looked on ebay but i am leery of a 5.00 charger (they are marked with Motorola Skews but Motorola does not list one)

    I don't like direct charging any device more risk of damage ...

    I have been suspicious of the wall charger that came with my Droid X. It seems to take an extremely long time to charge, even with the phone powered off.

    I found that plugging into the non-functional (except for power) USB port on the front of my FIOS STB seems to work better than even plugging it into my PC.

    I didn't have to change anything. Maybe you got a defective one.
