Yes!  Cables are cheap.  I have a car charger and line charger at work that
cost less than $3 each at a discount drug store.  If the charger were
damaged it wouldn't be a problem.

In my original post, I avoided ranting about the crappy little connector on 
the Tablet.  Even the  OEM charger doesn't even plug fully into the connector 
on the Tablet.  It leaves a long cantilever sticking out.  It was loose from the
start and is very easily damaged.  Once damaged, it is difficult to charge the 

I'm still looking for a way to fix it.
