Droid 3 not charging, maybe

So, I bricked my Droid 3; my fault entirely, I know how to fix it, etc. etc.

The problem that I'm having is that the battery is mostly empty, and I can't tell when it's actually charging. The only time that the little white light comes on is when I plug it into a computer. When plugged into the wall, it goes into a boot loop of the 'dual core' screen and then black for a few seconds. It doesn't seem to charge in the recovery screen or when I boot holding both volume buttons down. I bootstrapped CWM before bricking, and made a full backup. I can borrow a charged battery if necessary, eventually - not at the moment, though. The battery isn't full enough right now to flash anything.

Thanks in advance!
