Ouch! Expensive lesson... :P
It could be worse. Imagine taking it to the store and having them point that out. I am getting to the point where all my chargers need to be labelled, so it is not uncommon.
whew.... I had a similar panic. Noticed the battery going down when I was using it plugged in. You guessed - The wall plug was out.
That was the Amazon Gods exacting their revenge upon you for replacing the Kindle!!
well i will be getting a ipad soon and this story is going to help me not make the same mistake you did so thank you for that
I am SO glad that I didn't drive the hour to the Best Buy where I bought the iPad (all indignant and hot under the collar!) only to be told that there was nothing wrong with the iPad except that it has a stupid owner (I'd rather acknowledge that in the privacy of my own home!!)
