Eris doesn't charge well (if at all) on iGo car charger


May 16, 2010
I've had the Eris since January, and it has never charged well on the iGo (which charged my blackberry curve fine). I may plug it in 3, 4, 5 times before I get it to start charging, and if I move it around, it stops.

I switched the tip from the BB to the one for the Hero/Eris (even though they are both mini-USB). Generally it charges fine on the OEM charger. What do you think? Is the problem with the charger (it charges my Bluetooth fine), the tip, or the Eris? I'd hate to return the phone to Verizon when I just got my 2.1 OTA, but...it's really not cool to have issues charging it in the car (or away from home because the iGo comes with a wall charger too, same issues apply).
