I have an issue here where the Droid just wont charge via USB connect to PC. I believe the PC or Droid cannot recognize each other and fails to connect/charge. Checking the USB tether (in the settings) - the status of the USB connection flickers from connected to not connected.
When using a charger, the white LED light would start blinking a few times a second and the charger/batt icon would go back and forth from charging status and discharging in the same interval. I've used 850 mAh chargers. However, I did get a 500 mAh charger to work one time when I borrowed someone's charger. Not sure this will work again as now it happens consistently.
This happens with stock 2.1, 2.1 rooted, froyo 2.2 root/unrooted, Bugless Beast 0.4 - and I've tried almost every kernel available. Stock, OC'ed, you name it.
I think it may have stemmed from using this product:
Tekkeon - TekCharge MP1800, emergency power, emergency battery
It is a portable charger but I have not heard much of issues from other Droid owners using the product. However, my troubles have started when I first started using the product.
The ONLY way I can charge the product or connect the Droid to the PC via USB is using the TekCharger as the middleman... oddly, it works. I can't continue using it this way. Please help!
