Answer to: Nexus 7 2nd generation not charging, or very (very) slowlyHad same problem and nexus eventually died. Tried ASUS, but economical to send back so replaced it. Husband started to have similar issue with his nexus and, by chance I came across a Google wireless charger £9. It worked perfectly with his so I thought I would try my old Nexus...it recharged and I was able to reboot using power/volume down buttons as suggested on many forums. Now have two perfectly functioning tablets!
