Default Issue with TF101

Was wondering if any of the other transformer owners out there have had any issue with thier tablets suddenly not being able to charge from the wall plug. Mine just decided to not be able to charged. This has made me very unhappy as this is the second one i have had as the first tablet was defective as soon as i bought it.

thanks. But it looks like it's probably the charger as the trickle charging i did yesterday worked. Now i just need to wait to hear back from asus. Something you should probably keep an eye out for.

We'll watch for it, though we are lucky as we have 2 machine here. We also have an assortment of wall warts now that convert 120 VAC to 5 VDC USB... I imagine that I would have to check the current capability of each, but they should be comparable.

keep in mind that the tf101 chargers at around 11-13v at 5v it's only a trickle charge.
