Well I've narrowed my issue down to the tablet itself. Tried many power outlets (in 3 apartments, in 3 countries, at least 10 in each apartment -- at least one of these would not be broken), many chargers, many cables.
But the thing always receives less than the charger outputs. A lot less... (Also tried with a phone charger -- input is 200 mA at best)
Seeing as the mA the tablet gets tops out at 700 (if I'm lucky, usually less than 450), I'm beginning to wonder what's wrong. Pulling the battery is only a temporary solution, as it only helps for mere seconds. Restarting doesn't help either, nor does charging when the tablet is off. Also tried the 'connect-to-PC-via-USB-and-then-plug-it-in-a-charger' trick, but no luck...
Estimated charge time from 0 to 100% is around 10 hours, that's 10%/hour. If I'm lucky enough to get 700mA from the charger, it takes around 7-8 hours.
Now what in the world could be causing this?
I see we don't all have the same issues -- some have broken chargers, cables, some have broken kernels. Maybe we all have different hardware versions? Mine is a er3, or so I think. Will check again, as I'm not sure...
I'll download the official 4.1 ROM once I get home from vacation (the Wi-Fi is so bad, I'll be lucky if xda servers even get this message :P). Just to see if it's really kernel -- or any software for that matter -- related.
Or maybe I just have so much sh*t on the poor thing...?
Anyways, will get back with results hopefully this Sunday. Am always alert, watching this thread in case somebody gets any idea what all this could be.

I sent mine to asus service. When it got back, it worked for a couple of days, then it got worse. I've sent it back again...
