Just a quick note on a workaround I had with an other phone that was
difficult to charge...
I used to have a HTC Magician Windows Mobile (branded T-Mobile MDA, but
I think the "same" as HTC Jam mobile),
and charged via the mini-USB socket.
I found that charging from a PC always worked, but charging with a
charger other than the supplied one didn't work.
I purchased a few car chargers (ie cigar sock -> mini USB), and none of
those worked either, except when I managed to
very small mini-usb hub, and plugged the car charger into that, and then
the phone into the hub. (ie the hub was powered via
the mini-usb connector). A bit of a spaghetti of wires, but it worked.
Maybe this would work with some hubs for the Neo.
