    Mine does that with 3rd party chargers. I pretty much have to stick with Verizon or Motorola chargers to keep that from happening.

    Mine is the one that came with the phone. I have even tried to pull the battery but that didnt help either.

    Mine does it too. Whenever I try to swype when on the charger, I get a bunch of random letters being typed. Scrolling is completely screwed up as well. My charger is also the one that came with the phone.

    This isn't unique to the Bionic, it used to happen to my droid 3 occasionally. I think I've read about similar issues on other phones as well.

    The issue appears to stem from a power adapter that isn't providing clean power. I had a 3rd party power supply that caused issues on my phone. When I compared the output of the 3rd party power supply to the motorola charger I had with an oscilloscope there are nasty voltage spikes and valleys in the DC signal for the 3rd party. The Motorola power supply was MUCH cleaner. We created a small circuit to help clean up the output of the 3rd party power supply and the phone started acting normally. Of course, the components we used to fix the problem were not a good long term solution. I threw away the 3rd party charger and swore to stick with Motorola power supplies and USB ports on computers. I thought that if it's screwing with my phone that bad I don't want to find out if it's doing permanent long term damage.

    I would suppose that a power supply that is starting to go bad may produce the same results. I recommend replacing your power adapter as soon as possible.
    Expected ICS late Q3 or Q4(2012). I called it back in February 2012!

    Now Expecting JB late Q2 2013. I called it back in October 2012!

    I have two identical chargers... one works perfect and the other is buggy... they're both Motorola stock chargers.. guess its a hit or miss
