Great tablet, poor charger

Nvidia Tablet Bonus Games (Digital Gift)
Nvidia Tablet Bonus Games (Digital Gift)

Pros: Great tablet with exceptional performance, decent build quality, ok price point, and useful software.

Cons: The charger isn't up to the challenge. It may be defective or just a design flaw. It took nearly 10 hours for the initial charge and, for example, 4 hours to bring it up from 65%. It actually de-charges while plugged in under moderate use (read, not gaming). After some additional research, this seems to be a normal problem. I'm currently working directly with Nvidia on this as Newegg professes to not have enough technical knowledge on the subject to offer a return or refund. I'd really just like to get another charger, so that'd be a cheap fix for everyone, but it seems like I have to go the long way around. So, buyer beware. This is a great, great tablet, but why they couldn't get something as relatively basic as a charger right I don't understand.

Overall Review: Chargers are easy to come by, and I actually have one from another tablet that at 4 years old works twice as well as the OEM charger from Nvidia, so this is an easily solved problem... It's just that I shouldn't have to mix and match parts for a new, higher-end product.
