Default Generic USB charger

Please Login to Remove!

I've got a 7100g, and a generic (Powertech) wall outlet USB power supply. When I plug my BB in, it shows the charging symbol for about 2 seconds and then goes away. The power supply works properly - it charges other USB-style device.

My blackberry USB charger chrages the BB properly, so I'm assuming it's not a problem with the BB, but then given that the generic USB power supply also works, I'm out of hardware to eliminate. Is there a software problem, or has anyone else seen this?

I have trawled around the forums and FAQ and can't find anything similar.

I'd use the blackberry charger, but unfortunately mine is one of the ones that has the lead, so I can't use it for general-purpose USB charging. I'm travelling a lot and would prefer to only carry one charger.

Any help would be much appreciated.
