    Something is making me think the stock data cable does not pull enough current from the average laptop/PC to charge the Droid X if the battery is complete dead.

    In my case it will just show a solid GREEN LED and not charge the phone at all. If I plug in the AC Adapter then the i get the bottle w/ the 5% charge percentage and the solid green LED goes away.

    I find it hard to believe that with usb rated at 5V 500mA this phone cant pull a base charge off of it. :|


    Im already plagued with a phone that cant tell me what percentage the battery is at and wont hold a long duration charge... what next.

    I have the same issue. I have the Droid X plugged into the laptop via USB and it says the word charging but is just shows the green battery icon without the lightning bolt (which shows that it is charging).
