My Motorola Xoom, which I bought from the now-closed TechBrands, has a faulty charging socket. I am desperately seeking a dock so I can charge it via the contacts. However, no one can sell me one. Amazon have them but won't ship to NZ.
Motorola wont' ship directly to a consumer and their "service" agent in Auckland has lost their shipment.
Telecom don't sell them online and my local shop is useless (Queenstown).
I've checked every possible retailer i can think of but no luck, even  the ones that Motorola recommend.

Please can someone suggest a way I can obtain one of these?

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Try youshop from nzpost. They redirect orders (for a fee) where amazon won't ship to NZ. Be aware that the charger might be for 110V.

Thanks guys, I bit the bullet and ordered the dock from Amazon via Youpost so it's neither quick nor cheap but hopefully will actually charge my device.

I have the speaker/charging dock for the Xoom and it's multivoltage so I would imagine that charging dock itself would be the same

I have no idea why you didn't look on ebay. Here is one for sale for $5 with $16.25 shipping to NZ

Thanks for replying. I had indeed looked at Ebay but the task of sifting through every single listing to find someone who would ship to NZ was too daunting (the one you posted is not live).
By the time I get the item from Amazon it will probably work out to be the same price as on Ebay, taking into account the savings made on my billable time.
