    Which small tab?

    I have not heard of anyone else doing that, and I have taken my charger a part a few times when it stopped working.

    Could you add a picture?

    Really good shot. So long as it's working, that's a good thing. You may want to purchase a backup charger just in case.

    There are very few non ASUS chargers that will work due to outputting less voltage than the TFs want/need. If it says it will do 15v output at 1.2-1.5 A that would be great. Here is a page (click) for a vendor that has a car charger that will do the job. They also carry some cables.
