    I am totally freaking out right now. My xoom will not charge, I've tried multiple outlets and it isn't working. I got in launch day so I'm pretty sure the return policy window is closed. I didn't buy insurance either, so now I have an 800 dollar paperweight. Motorola sucks, sweet flimsy proprietary port! Does anyone know how long the manufacture warranty is for? I think that's my only hope

    There's been multiple reports of faulty chargers. Take a breath. It might be as simple as replacing the $25 charger. Still sucks, but might not be a huge deal. Just stop by a Verizon location and see if it charges.

    I went to VZW store during my lunch break, they confirmed that the charger was bad. I got a new one under warranty, so far so good.

    .... add me to the list. Overnight on the charger the Xoom dropped to 29% and won't charge. :(

    No panic just not happy.

    Follow up: the weak point sems to be the folding plug. When I jiggle it just right I can get a charge.
