After playing around with it I discovered that if I propped up the Edge on its side and inserted the plug vertically (this is no joke) straight down, sometimes all the way, sometimes half-way, it charged OK.
This may sound like a dying PE, but I have been using this method to charge the Edge for over one year, and so far all is well.
HOLY CATS. I just tried your vertical charging method, and the little green light is blinking... I'll let you know how this goes!
In the meantime, I just bought a used PE on ebay, so I'll have to figure out what to do with that.
