    Worth a shot. Worst case, you have a charger and cable that don't work.

    I hate to be a killjoy, but the very brief manual that came with my xoom specifically says not to plug any usb into the mobile power adapter that plugs into the wall. I take this to mean that this device will not charge through the mini usb port, but only through the round peg slot specifically designed for recharging. I have seen the recharging unit by igo that uses 2 AA batteries to give you some more time, but I can not find a tip for the xoom and do not know if they even make one. I am going to Europe soon and face the same challenges. good luck for the both of us.
