    I have had my Droid X for a few months and picked up a new car charger when I got the phone. All of a sudden today car charging is very sporadic. If I wiggle the connection it works. Home charger works great but won't cut it due to my heave use. What can I do to fix the car charger? My last two android/Verizon experiences have not been great and if I have to fork out 30.00 every few months for a new car charger its just another big strike.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Wow, I'm having the exact same issue, down to the home charger working fine too. I noticed it started happening when I installed the leaked gingerbread (before I rooted and had stock it worked fine) but when I was using the liberty rom, it never happened. So I'm curious if it has to do with the software...

    If it's a verizon branded charger, that's your problem. Mine does the same thing. My motorola charger works fine.

    Ahh, interesting. That's my scenario too. Moto home charger, Verizon car charger.

    Hmmm...

    Im not rooted but it looks like a common problem. I guess its time for a Verizon call.

    Glad to know im not the only one. I thought my phone's charging port was going to heck. My fix: Grab the pliers and pinch the charger end together a little bit. Fits nice and tight and always charging.
