My droid bionic has just recently started not charging via usb. also its getting super HOT when its charging and its seems even hotter when its not charging. Either way if its plugged up it shows charging but steady looses power. Of course when its not on charge it goes down QUICK!!! PLEASE HELP Ready to give it up

Are you using the factory charger and cable? What were you doing to/with the phone prior to this happening, have you tried rebooting.

This happened to my wifes D2 out of the blue a few months ago. Neither of us flashed any ROMs. It was bare stock, not even rooted. I tried factory resetting it, it still didn't fix it. I brought it to Verizon for a replacement. I think it was a hardware fault.

It's always better to charge from an a/c outlet.

Kinda sounds like your battery is bad...have you tried swapping batteries?
