So many of these little electronic accessories are like that now. They either don't work at all, or only work a few times before they quit. Chinese junk. Sorry, but until they stop making stuff like this they aren't going to have a decent reputation for manufacturing.
I got some Sony brand chargers that are bigger, heavier, and really do work. I think with this type of product you should stay away from the off brands.
I have to agree. My wife got one of these at an IBM tech conference. We took it on a vacation last week along with my trusty old Duracell charger I bought off woot we'll over a year ago. This POS turned itself on a couple times and ran down to nothing, then the input micro USB port stopped working, unable to take a charge. The Duracell? Worked like a charm. $30 for two seem overpriced for such a flimsy device.
