Great, then DEAD Charging Issues - like not being able to.

My wife and I just got two SGT's (verizon) and everything's been glorious - though battery life hasn't been great. Anyway - all of a sudden, my wife's stopped being able to charge (we'd get a little x in the battery icon) while my tab charged just fine on both chargers - her's would say charging and some percent when we'd check it, but it would never go up - even turning completely off, there'd be less battery than before.

Right after getting an RMA from Samsung to fix my wife's, MY tab is doing the same thing! My battery has apparently gone from 25% to 0% in 15 minutes and no matter which charger I put it on (trying to avoid the 0%) it would not charge. Now, when I press the power button, a battery icon flashes for a moment - but no "charging dots". I don't want to send mine off till I see how my wife's has improved, but was hoping somebody knew what else could be done! HELP!

Would be very unlunky for you both to get a faulty GT, don't you get a new for old/exchange with them being so new ?

I would not use the main charger but try trickle charge from your laptop/PC to see if this works incase one of your chargers is burning out the battery somehow

I don't think it is gonna charge now. For some reason these tabs have had problems at times w/ the batteries being drained super fast and then for some reason they can't be charged again. You will most likely have to send it back and samsung will tell you not to run the battery all the way down. Nice of them to jack you up for something actually wrong w/ your tab.
