    Anyone else having this issue? From the manual:

    While the battery is
    charging, the
    charging indicator
    lights red when the
    charge is less than
    15%, white when
    the charge is 15 - 95%, and green when greater than
    95%.

    Mine does not light up at all.

    I believe this light only works with display off. I read somewhere that it should work as follows.

    1. with the display off - confirm that the charging LED at the bottom middle front part of the device is on (it will be either red if less than 15% charge, white if the charge is between 15 to 95%, and green if it is over 95%).
    2. with the display on - view the battery icon in the bottom right corner of the notification bar and look for the lightning bolt on the battery icon.

    I did learn that it does not charge from USB it has its own charger. The verizon people didn't even know that, they were using a blackberry charger.

    I just noticed when the device is powered off the light works.

    Interesting... mine does not show unless the device is actually powered off. If the screen is simply off, no LED. Press and hold power, then power the device off, and the LED works. Odd.

    Yep, charging indicator works when the device is powered down. I imagine it will be fixed in an update.

    Mines not showing to be charging at all, powered on or off. No LED activity. I also am not getting the lightning bolt through the battery level indicator when on.

    Turns out mine may have a problem. If I wiggle the connection, it charges. Very.sensitive and a crappy charging concept.

    This looks like a problem in the manual language. The Xoom charging indicator only shows up when it's powered off and plugged in.

    Looks like you guyas figured it out.. The light is now for when it is off. But when the device is on, you have the indicator on the screen, so I cant see why there is a need to update it.

    Obviously the benefit would be seeing the battery charging state at a glance or from a few feet away WITHOUT HAVING TO TURN THE SCREEN ON. My droid has a very handy charge lght that is white while charging and turns off when done. There is no reason for the indicator to work when off and to not work in sleep mode.

    My xoom charging LED indicator always shows white, even it is 100℅ charged. No green light.

    I went to best buy to replace my unit but three other unit I tested are same. Always white no green even it is fully charged.

    I returned it to Best Buy and I got new unit from Verizon. THIS NEW XOOM DOES SAME THING. Charging indicate shows white even when it is fully charged. Am I really unlucky guy or do you guys have same problem?

    Xoom charging indicator

    Mine wasn't working either until I read above that the unit has to be off. Not just asleep. Now it works. The unit does not charge through USB due to the 12 volt power requirements of the larger unit. USB only provides 5 volts. I wish they has chosen a better charging plug though, but that's for another thread.

    AhA! Yes. That is true. If I actually TURN IT OFF e.g. power down the light comes on. But Damn! It lost all my browser tabs! :p

    All, the proper function

    - There is a misprint in the manual on how it should work and the original post I posted to this thread is wrong, here is the proper function

    1. Xoom does not charge through uUSB port at all under any circumstances and you should not plug in a charger to that port.
    2. When Xoom is powered off (Not in sleep mode but completely off) and the battery is charging, the charging indicator lights white until 100%, and turns green when it is 100% charged. There is no Red light as previously indicated. The manual is incorrect. The proper function has been updated on their Web Site https://motorola-global-portal.custh...stant/g_id/368
    3. When powered on the battery meter in the lower right is the indicator that shows it charging.
    4. I believe also if powered up on the charger and the phone is locked that the display has a % of charge indicated.

    Hope this helps
