So guys i had this problem too. Ok so looks like some have a usb port only to tranfer the photos off not to charge. These ones have small screws and you need to just change the batteries. BUT if you have the newer version like me then plug the usb charger in and turn the camera upside down. You will find the smallest on off switch in the world on the right side. Switch across and it will start charging. They make these toys far to complicated!

Please make sure that the master power switch on the bottom of the device is placed into the 'off' position for the device to charge. If the device still is not charging the USB cable or battery may be faulty. The Troubleshooting page may be able to help you further.

But it is said in the manual, the master need to be at the "on" position for charging.

It will only charge off their usb cable, on any other micro usb lead the part that plugs into the camera is just to short. So it fits in but won't start charging.
