Is anybody else having problems with the charger port on the side not working after a while. My company has 24 of these devices and one completely broke off, 2 are loose enough you can wiggle them, and 2-3 more you have to wiggle the charger just right for it to charge. Just wondering if other users with an 8800 are having this problem.

Thanks in advance.

I see that issue posted only rarely on the boards here. A good electronics person with a soldering gun could fix it easily.

If you have that many loose, it does sound like an issue... My 8800 never gave me a problem charging.

I agree. While it is not unheard of that the connector become loose and even seperate from the circuit board, it does happen rarely. Most I have heard of is where the device is dropped while connected and it happened to land on the connector. Tell your people to handle with reasonable care and they should not be having alot of trouble.

If this was a big time defect you would be seeining it rear it's ugly face here!
