From what I have read there is no charging through the usb because it does not provide ample voltage to charge the xooms larger battery hence the propriety charger. Think of it as a lap top almost you can't charge a laptop through usb either.

Yeah I read in another thread that phone batteries are about 5 volts and laptops are roughly 9, the xoom requires 7 volts, which makes perfect sense in my opinion. And considering that yesterday I had 45% battery after 11 hours of use I'm not going to complain about anything related to the battery.
