If it is through a USB you would think that there is a transformer in your charging device that would convert the electricity so that it won't fry your device. If the wall charger does not work and it's brand new you should probably contact VM about that. Sounds like you got a bad charger.
I wonder about that. I also have the r101 reader and I also tried it's charger, but I'm not sure if they're compatible or not. Regardless, it didn't work with that charger either. Oh, and I meant dc-IN btw.
I already contacted VM about it and hopefully they'll get back to me. In the meantime...I will cross my fingers that the usb wall charger works without the frying.
Thank you for replying so fast, too, btw. Have a great weekend!

I have T301 as well and it will not charge from the 5 Volt AC Adapter only by using the USB Cable. The Readers have a 12 Volt system and they "ARE NOT THE SAME" even though they have the same size connector. I have contacted VM and was told that I can send it back for a replacement but have yet to do so. They do not admit to any problems with the DC In operation but it appears there is one.

Anyway if someone can check if the device charge light is off when powered up and on when powered down this might be the issue.

I've heard (I can't remember where) that people who tried using the charger from the Cruz Readers actually fried their Cruz tablets. Even though they look the same apparently they are not.....
Your right the R103 and the T103 chargers looks the same and fits the same. But the R103 charger will fry a T103 cause the voltage is different.
Don't know about other models.

However, she was borrowing my dual mini-usb wall/car cig-lighter charger for her other electronics and I got that back from her. I am happy to report a few months later that that little device has been a godsend. I just plug the usb cord from my tablet to the usb charger to the wall or car lighter hole if I'm going someplace with someone and it charges beautifully. It also holds a charge for more than twelve hours which is very, very nice. The usb charger I have is one where you can charge two usb-compatible devices, like an ipod or a cell phone, tablet etc, at the same time by either the wall or a cigarette lighter hole in a car or truck. I got it at Walmart for about twenty bucks. Well worth every cent.
Take care and happy Cruzin'!

I also got a wifi router for christmas and it has a USB port on the side which I found out can be used to charge my tablet. So most of the time my dual charger is being used to charge our two iPods and the wifi router is charging my tablet via its USB port. So, I don't care anymore about the defective dc-in port as I have found other, sustainable ways of keeping my Tablet's battery charged, one of which has been working good for a little over a year. Let's hope it keeps it up!
