    Default Charging?

    I recently took my transformer on vacation with me. I took the USB cable (but not the wall plug) when I tried to charge it via USB port on car radio / USB port on computer / and USB port on cell phone charger it would not charge. Is the only way to charge it with the USB cable and wall plug? Thanks Anthony.

    Pretty much yes. None of the option produce enough voltage to charge the tf anyway.

    The "USB" cable is wired to permit a higher charging current and you'll note that the wall wart transformer puts out a voltage higher than the USB standard of 5VDC - therefore a standard powered USB port will not provide adequate charge current for the tab.

    Try leaving the tab on but put in airplane mode then plug it in and turn off screen. I can get 40percent or so overnight that way. Not ideal but good in a pinch if all you have is a phone charger.

    Thanks everyone for the input. I thought it was maybe just my tf.

    You can buy a 12v DC-120v AC inverter for your car to charge your TF on the road. You can get one almost anywhere for $10-15.

    prakash99, I discovered, at least on mine unless I'm just an *****, that you have to have the plug in the wall with the ASUS logo upside down and the USB connection on top. It doesn't charge the other way around.
    Don't know if that helps...

    The wall charger is super cheaply constructed. I would suggest not leaving it plugged in for more than a few hours as they have a tendency to overheat and die. I actually returned my first one for this issue as they will not replace just the ch0arger.
