Charging

Charging:
"I would never recommend this product to anyone not even my worst enemy my boyfriend bought this about 3 months ago it was running fine and everything he wanted a laptop so he bought one and gave this to me with in two days that I had it, the micro USB port broke and we had to get it fix we just got it back and now it's charging but won't turn on!"
_
"There is also a problem with the charging port, it is hard to insert the charging plug, the charging port should be larger ..more robust."
_
"My only complaint is that the charging cable is fairly short, which makes it difficult to find a spot to plug in and try to use it at the same time, if you need to."
_
"I would have given it 5 stars because i really like this Tab but, i recently had to get the Charging Port repaired because the prong got damaged and it could not charge."
_
"There is also a problem with the charging port, it is hard to insert the charging plug, the charging port should be larger ..more robust."
_
"A good idea brought up by others on the forums i was reading was to mark one side of the charging cord so that its easier to know which way it should go in SAFELY."
_
"Other than the charging port i enjoy using my Dell Venue pro very much and intend to continue using it, just a bit more carefully now when i plug in the charging cable."
_
"Pretty decent I would say, and it takes about 4.5 hours to fully charge it."
