I just got my TAB and the male end of the charger wont fit in the charging port, I don't want to force it in, but I don't think there is another
way to get it to fit. Have any of you had this problem, if so could you help me out? Thanks

gunner, both connections on the charger cable have a "mark" on them, these have to be in a specific direction, on the charger connection the "usb sign" has to face the top of the charger (see pic 01), on the tab connection "samsung" has to face up ( see pic 02)

there are many types of samsung charger plug, so just want to make sure you have the correct one for the Tab..
the alternate one that looks almost identical (but is upside down when compared to the tab's version) has 2 tiny little square notches cut out of the end face of the plug.. they are about 0.5mm wide..

heres a pic of my charger plug..

where I put the arrow is where the little notches are on the other similar looking version.

Thanks, I must have the identical one that is not in the picture, do you know anyway to get the correct one?

probably the best thing to do would be to go to a phone shop, or other place that sells spares for phones.. take your plug and tab along with you and actually do a comparison between your one and those they sell. a friendly retailer should let you test fit the plug to make sure its the right one.
the only thing that concerns me is that you might have the right plug, but that the Tab may be damaged, or there is something blocking the port.
Any chance you could do the pics for us?
