See if you have the same problem with the official charger.

My theory isn't so good then.. but it's still worth looking in to whether you're drawing the required current.

This is a Freerunner right?
The far right should be the amperage that the charger is currently set to draw. More details (and other things in sysfs you may want to examine) here:
If you're plugged directly into the host, you should be getting 500mA, assuming your operating system is performing power negociation properly. Hubs can be inconsistant unless they have external power.
