    My Droid X doesn't charge (sometimes)

    Okay, this is very awkward.

    I plugged in my Droid X last night thought it was charging and I unplugged it today and it was still at 20% from where it was last night.

    Wth is up with that?! I removed the usb and connected it again and it started to charge again. It happened to be about two times before as well.

    Is my Droid X defected or what? :O If this continues, I'll probably consider getting a new replacement.

    This same thing happened to mine, my gf's, my brothers (both of them) and my cousin. It was with each owns cables, so not like the cables are defective. I haven't seen it happen on mine in a long time (knock on wood) nor have I heard from anyone else seeing it in awhile. I guess the ports were just needing some break in period like a new pair of shoes :P

    I was having the same problem. I don't know if this was the problem or not but mine is charging fine now. I changed task killer app to Advanced task killer so i am wondering if the app Task manager was telling it not to charge

    Just make sure that when you plug in your USP cable that you are connected at both ends. If your rough with your ports you will end up with a sloppy connection.

    Are you using the wall charger?

    Hooking the USB cable to a computer port?

    This phone requires a pretty high amperage to charge, so for me it takes forever when I use my computer to charge it, but it does OK if I use the wall wart. It does NOT necessarily do OK if I use a different phone charger with the same kind of connectors (like my old BB charger or something like that)

    I noticed mine always charges when I have my phone on standby mode and whenever my phone is turned on, it sometimes does not charge. So idk if that's a bug or anything. I handle my cables very carefully so I doubt that has anything to do with it.

    I couldn't figure out why my screen wasn't staying on when in the cradle/multimedia dock the other night. I didn't care that much so I didn't mess with it but I noticed when I got to the office that my battery was only 60% charged.

    I saw it happen one other time and popped it out and put it back in and all was fine.

    Ditch ATK and you will see improvement.
