having gotten a full charge by leaving my N810 in the car for a few hours
(my DC adapters stayed powered with the car off, thankfully), I can say
with a fair assurance that I have the same problem as Peter.  I will be
getting the power adapter replaced under warranty if at all possible.  If
nothing else, Nokia is more likely to acknowledge it as an actual issue if
they have had warranty issues on it.  However, a brief search on google
shows some fly-by-night places that have it for really cheap (like a few
dollars), so I may just pick up a replacement and a spare for the office./;

My power cord had not moved from where it had been originally plugged in
when I bought the unit, so it shouldn't have failed.

Apologies for my panicked initial post - I was worried I would be without
my baby ;P

Thanks for the replies.
