    Has anyone found another charger that works with the Galaxy 10.1? I was hoping to find something a little more compact and portable than the original. I tried the one listed here:

    http://store.androidcentral.com/grif...5A202A6702.htm [DIdn't buy it on site - found it in a local retailer]

    It says it's for tablets and smartphones and It's rated for 2.1 amps, but it didn't charge the tablet. Galaxy acted like it was connecting to a computer and tried to go into USB mode.

    Are there alternatives for a backup/travel charger or does the Galaxy have to have a Samsung attached to it to work?

    Did you look at the Samsung accessory site? I could swear they have something called a "travel charger" and the discount code "googleio2011" might still work. I'm not sure it's aimed at smaller size, rather international plugs. Not sure.

    I did see that travel charger, but that is basically the same as the original charger that came with the Galaxy - except it comes with more plug options.

    Has anyone tried one of these with a standard charger:
