    Not sure it will be limited to a trickle charge....but I do know that if you try to charge mobile electronics with power sources that are not very closely aligned to the original charger specs (amps in particular)...potential damage to devices can be a result.

    That's not applicable to just the Transformer either...I've seen folks fry smartphones with "universal" cigarette lighter adapters...

    Still no go

    Ok, bought the DYNEX DX-UA wall charger and.... nothing not even a trickle charge... Now I've gotten to the point of no return, I don't get mad, I get dedicated to resolve issues such as this one. Does anybody have any idea on what might be the problem? Also, would anybody know of a 3rd party USB cable that works with the TF101, it just might be my cable.

    me again, I just noticed that on the USB adapter that come with the Dynex wall charger it is written 5.0V only could this be the cause of the failed charge? The charger is set at 11V

    Steven, Sorry for your troubles....

    That could be a safety feature built into that. I know I read somewhere that the dynex worked with the USB tip. Best bet would be to get a multimeter if you happen to have one and test it out between pin 1 and 4.

    Edit: The DX-UA manual shows this text:
    Female USB Tip - 5V only
    My only other advice is to check out this thread at xda and see if you want to tackle a DIY solution: USB charging - DIY / alternative solutions discussed

    As far as 3rd party cable, they do not exist yet. Best bet is to find a retailer who sells the standard charger and cable and buy from them.

    I had this same problem - noticed that my transformer suddenly stopped charging. Looked here and in a bunch of places. The solution that worked for me is something I haven't yet seen on this thread - a cold reboot.

    To do a cold reboot:

    1. Make sure your unit is not plugged in or charging
    2. If you have the keyboard dock, make sure your tablet is docked.
    3. Power the unit completely down. Not sleeping, but powered off. (Hold power button for a few seconds to get that option.)
    4. Wait a few seconds.
    5. First press AND HOLD the volume down button. While holding it down, press AND HOLD the power button. Keep holding them until you get a little pulsing graphic that says something like "Wipe Data". There will also be a small text prompt in the upper left instructing you to press volume up to wipe, or volume down to skip.
    6. PRESS VOLUME DOWN. You don't need/want to wipe your device.

    At this point the screen should say something like "Cold booting directly to Linux." After mine did that, it powered up and everything looked normal, and now my charger works again.

    Ticked off last night. Charger would not charge. This morning I found this tread so I put the charger in the freezer for an hour as recommended and now it is charging. I will have to wait and see what happens once it warms up.
