    Droid Stops Charging Sometimes

    I've noticed the last couple of days that my droid is having trouble charging when plugged into the wall. It charges fine while plugged into a computer.

    When I first plug it into the wall, the light comes on indicating that it's receiving a charge but after about a minute the light goes off and it's no longer charging. Once this happens I can't get it to receive a charge except by plugging it into a computer.

    Does anyone have a solution for this? Is this a hardware issue or rom issue? I've been using gpa15 for a while now with no problems, so this is strange.

    OEM wall charger?

    Is the socket on the droid loose? If you can wiggle it; it's probably the phone

    Yeah, it's the original. I guess I could assume that since it charges while connected to a computer, that the usb cable is not the issue. I wonder if the ac adapter is bad? It's strange because it works sometimes.

    Alright, after further testing of the ac adapter I'm 99% confident that it is the issue. There's something wrong with the plug where the usb cable connects. When I wiggle the plug, the charging light flickers. If I hold it to one side, the light will stay on. I guess it must have been damaged riding around in my bag. Any suggestions on a replacement?

    Are either of these legit?

    Amazon 1

    Amazon 2

    These look like OEMs but sometimes you can't tell. Anyone?

    Any that Verizon sell are fine, I actually use several that are left over from my BB Days....
    I personally would not buy a $3 one from ebay.

    I have vowed to never give Verizon another dime of my money in terms of buying hardware. I will keep looking.
