    I purchased a 6' USB 3.0 extension cable. It appears to work, although someone said it will make charging slower (which is really not a problem).

    Question: The inverted triangle with the ! (I believe) in it has something to do with charging. Sometimes it is all dark. Sometimes it is partially light. What is it telling us?? What does the flashing ! mean?

    I just tested this with a battery widget and a 4 foot USB extension. With the extension, the widget says "not charging". Without the extension, the widget says "charging".

    If you look in the end of the USB charging cable you will see it has 5 pins. Now look in your USB extension cable. You will probably only see 4 pins. That's the reason why I think. The extension cable needs the full 5 pins.

    I've just been looking at all of my USB cables. They all have a 4 pin row. I checked on Ebay and Googled and cannot find ANY 5 pin USB male to female extension cables. This seems to be a propiertary cable for Asus only!

    Well I purchase a 3.0 cable. I was told it had to be (3.0). It definately works.

    Oh, the upside down triangle...... Stupid me. It has nothing to do with charging. It is the signal strenth indicator for the wireless network.

    As TEM said it needs to be a 3.0 USB cable. Several people here have bought 6' extensions and have no issues.

    Lack of a replacement charger is starting to make me cranky. I got the 3.0 extender and that's great, however, what if the charger cord breaks or gets lost before I can get my hands on a replacement? We need some OEM stuff for this thing, particularly a backup charger. I look periodically and Asus is always out of them- at first I would not have paid 40 bucks for it, but at this point, I really need it. I just wish we could at least get a trickle charge from a mini usb port or something.

    Just found post on here with links to sites that sell it. Will try to get one. This thing is getting expensive.

    USB3 charging?

    Has anyone tried plugging it into a computer that has usb3 to see if it charges at a decent rate?

    None of my computers have usb3, all are usb2.x so they would charge but it would be next year sometime before they finished probably..

    I'm surprised there hasn't been any after market sellers offering chargers like belkin.. (not that I'll buy any belkin products ever again after the last two piles of poo i got from them)
