I have a motorola v3 that charges fine at home with the wall outlet charger. The problem is that it will not charge with the car charger. I have bought two car chargers and it will not work with either. Both chargers are compatible with the phone. But it still refuses to charge with the mobile car cigarette plug charger. How can I get it to charge in my car? plug is fine. charger lights up. but the phone wont charge.
I have to assume that you saw the mini-usb connector and believed that it was compatible with the Razr. Unfortunately, Motorola threw a propriatary wrench into the standard mini-usb.

Evidently, some of the cheaper aftermarket charger manufacturers aren't even aware of this issue. Once you find a mobile charger that works with your Razr, it WILL also charge all your other mini-usb gear.

I have the same problem with my iPhone. The only real way and best way to get a charge on a phone is through a wall charger. Car chargers and computer/usb to charge doesn't actually do anything but "top off" the battery. They don't produce enough power to give the batter a strong charge like the wall can. That's my best advice. Charge from the wall when at home. Use the car to top off when your on the go.
If the charger is plugged in, the phone is hooked to it, and it still will not come on, I would think it's a charger or electrical outlet problem. I think most phones will bypass the battery power if they are plugged into an outlet, so try another wall plug, and if that wasn't it, try a different charger. If a different outlet and charger don't solve it, it may be time to take it to the store to be checked.
Its not due to charging it via usb. Your charger is not giving full amount of charge and thats why its charging with the usb but not with the charger. And, if that is not the case then somehow an internal ic inside your phone is blown and needs a repair.
Please ask for further clarifications.

i have noticed that the mini plug for the charger and usb connection on RAZR V3 is sometimes sloppy. when the phone is charging it will definitely say battery charging on the external display and also flash the battery icon. i also noticed that the plug for the wall outlet is touchy. make sure the plug is secure in the wall outlet make sure the mini plug is secure in the phone gently wiggle these connections if you have to till you get the battery charging message if there are any connection problems there will be a unable to charge message instead.
umm dat mite be a prob becuz the car usually pumps more voltage in the fone...........and if too much is pumped it damage the circuit board and mite even fry the system......
be care ful and keep trying the wall charger..........hope it works
