    If it charges when connecting to PC did you try any other wall adapters or something else to test the socket? Just to cover everything to take the next steps. I've had several bad wall adapters over the years. So just do a few more tests if you haven't already. Any yes, if unsuccessfully after using different charges and different socket then Odin to stock before returning.

    Tried two different chargers and neither will work. However they work fine on my nexus 7. I am curious if Sam's would even take it back

    Yeah they should take it back. Odin back to stock and test the charger again (just in case). If it doesn't work I see no reason they wouldn't take it back with receipt in return period. Walmart and Sam's are pretty generous with returns.

    Here's the link to their policy

    Return / Refund Policy

    Just need to be within that 30 day period and should be fine.

    Now if you are outside, you'll need to contact Samsung below to initiate a repair or replacement. And that covers you for a year if it's a defect of some sort which it sounds like here. Link below. Good luck.

    LOL not sure. If the other chargers and same USB cable is working consistently with your other device but is spotty with your S4 then you may have an issue. And it could get worse or fail completely over time. So at this point it's kinda up to you on if you want to test a little longer if you have some time in the return period or if you just want to return altogether just to be on the safe side. Kinda up to you though.

    Yeah that would probably be the best thing since with Samsung you get a year for hardware defects and such. So if it works out great for you for a while then you're good. And if problems come up months down the line, you'll still be good within a year. Good luck again.

    Just had this same problem with my s4 and a custom rom. Turns out all I had to do was wipe the dalvik/cache and it fixed everything. Charges perfectly fine now.
