    It moves only slightly (less than 1mm), so instead of pushing my luck got one of these and it's connected all the time. Better safe than sorry !!

    Mine also wobbly but I can feel it snap into place when connected.. possible design feature for those accidental rip outs?

    same here. lots of wobble but minor difficulty actually plugging it in.

    in the dark it always feels like i am plugging it in wrong because there is so much resistance if it is plugged straight in.

    Mine (purchased in December) has been wobbly and now it won't connect at all. Not sure if it needs a new cord or a new socket.

    I know the post says to reply if you have a wobbly port, but that may not give an accurate account of the norm.

    It looks like I will be only the second one to post that I am not having that issue...mine is a bit tighter than I would expect...using the original cord. Bought mine at Christmas.

    Has anyone contacted Asus to discuss the issue?

    I contacted asus support a few days after I posted in this thread about this issue. I got a form response telling me to submit a RMA request...since my T100 was only a few days old and I did not want to part with my new toy, I didn't follow-up.

    I have been, however, frequently using the microUSB charger for my Barnes and Noble nook simple touch ereader instead and it fits snugly and seems to charge perfectly fine, although for the life of me, I can't find any documentation that tells me what charging capacity it has (having read threads about off-market chargers for the T100, particularly longer ones when the one that comes with the T100 is so short, I thought I better be sure the Nook charger (cord and adapter) are what is needed). I notice that the microusb on the nook is about 1mm shorter than the microusb on the T100 cord I received with the T100. I suspect that the tiny longer connector might be a quality control issue for some of us and it is what makes the difference. I also have to insert the T100's charger at a slight angle (someone else posted that earlier) and it doesn't seem to go in as smoothly as the tiny bit shorter Nook microusb. When I use the original T100 cord, I handle it very carefully, keep it on a flat surface etc. A bit of a pain, but I don't want it to break off inside the connection since it seems that the slightly longer length may be the problem.

    I noticed that the Micro USB connector of my 3.1A charger (DK005H) is quite different from all the others I've seen. Inside the female socket there's this pin connector that should fit snuggly with any cable. For my (and maybe our) chargers, the space that accommodates the connector is wider. This explains the wobbling (and, unfortunately, charging issues) that can taint an otherwise great product. Have any of you guys successfully replaced the charger with a new one?

    I think that these ports on the tablet wear out. They start out tight and over time get wobbly and eventually the ports fail. Mine did, despite being careful. I had to RMA mine and they replaced the motherboard because the port would register that it was plugged in, but it wouldn't charge the tablet.

    This solution may not be to everyone's liking, but I found that angling the input cord slightly, increasing the metal to metal contact, fixed the problem. This is how I charge my extra battery in a battery charger that stopped working.

    Yeah, but that is a short term solution... eventually you will wear the tabs out enough that they won't work any more...
