    Until last year I had an SE T68i, and after a couple of months of use I
    noticed that the physical connection between the charger and the base of
    the phone became somewhat weak, often requiring very careful positioning
    if the phone wasn't to stop charging. I put this down to a one-off
    defect with the charger.

    In November I upgraded to a Z600 which came with a charger of identical
    design. I now find that the combination of phone and charger is doing
    exactly the same thing. To reliably charge the phone I have to plug in
    the charger and wrap the lead over the back of the phone to keep it in
    place.

    Is anyone else seeing this or have I just been incredibly unlucky (or
    heavy-handed) with my chargers? If it's a design flaw it needs serious
    investigation; having your phone discharging instead of charging is a
    recipe for trouble.

    Re: Wearing out of Sony Ericsson charger connectors

    First Ive heard of it. Let me ask you, do you just "pull" the charger out of
    your phone in a straight out kind of way or do you kind of angle it out
    while you pull, kind of like grasping the end of the charger and twisting it
    down while you remove it? if u get my drift?

    The latter. If nobody else is seeing this then it's clearly something
    I'm doing wrong. I need to investigate it. It could well be
    environmental (contacts tarnishing rather than a physical mismatch).
    Damned annoying, though, when I put the phone on to charge overnight and
    the next morning I have about an eighth of capacity

    I've never had this problem with my T68. I also angle the charger to
    disconnect it. Odd...

    I havent had that problem with my T28, T39, T65, T68, P900 or Z1010,
    although the charger with the t65 was a bit funny, (ie you could hear it
    beep to charge as the connection was a little flaky - but that was out of
    the box. the previous charger worked fine).

    me too! But cleaning the contacts solved the problem
