    Wow I thought I was the only one. Good thing Samsung told me the other day this wasn't a problem they were aware of...

    Well this is going to suck if I'm going to have to go out and purchase a "regular" charging brick. All of mine are fast charging capable. But that could very likely be the issue. Maybe I'll try charging it in my car to see what happens.
    I used a fast charger, that's all I have

    Whelp still nothing. I'm a little disappointed, I was really looking forward to trying it out. Who knows how long Samsung will take getting me a replacement.

    Have you tried charging it with a PC or laptop. Mine was DOA also and wouldn't charge with any wall charger. I just connected it to my laptop with the included cord and it charged up. Now it works just fine with any wall charger.

    Mine was the same way tried all cables but the one thing that worked was plugging into my laptop. The trick is that you have to basically have a trickle charge to get it to wake up and charge. What u need is something like 1amp it cant be higher. I left mine on there for 20mins before i saw the charging light. Some people have been able to get it to charge with a power bank but again it has to be on the slow end 1amp. Good luck and of course you can always buy one say at best buy and return the other one

    Find one of those power strips that has a USB charging port. Plug it in that, and it'll start charging instantly. Leave it for 5 minutes, and then you can charge it like normal with the charger it came with. I tried everything, and this was the only thing that worked

    Mine charged right up without a hitch on a dual port QC 2.0 charger. My biggest issue is I can't get my fingers out of the frame no matter how I hold it. I have an old selfie stick lying around that has a tripod screw. I guess I'll give that a shot lol.

    Probably the standard tripod screw size.
