I have been wondering about this....I even had the bag replaced by WOOT for this issue.
After receiving my 2nd bag I figured that was the issue so got a Micro-USB Tip for the USB-B tip and my Nexus charges fine.

I purchased the POWERBAG MESSENGER bag last fall on WOOT at a good savings from its normal price and have traveled quite a bit with it.
Things to know about the bag:
1. The charging system works great and the little pocket for the bag's AC is great. The cables are not reroutable between the pockets however. iPHONE gets the big pocket.
2. You can upgrade to a 6000mah battery if you wish...and larger sizes are coming.
3. You can also remove the battery and charge it separately from the bag with the AC Adapter.
4. You can charge your devices thru the bag while the bag is charging. A convenient meter on the front shows the bags current charge.
5. The accessories pockets are small...this is not a bag for a long trip but more of a commuter bag.
6. My 15.6" Asus K55N fits perfectly in the bag...if your tablet has a case it will not slide easily into the tablet pouch.
7. The bag through airport security has not been an issue. Any bag that you have that holds a ton of electronics will get the same discrimination.
8. The build of the bag is good...my only complaint is the shoulder strap handles should have been flat instead of half moons.
9. The Battery has its own USB port so you can attach any device USB Charging cord that you may need (like the new iPhone 5 charging cable)
10. While having a separate portable battery charger is an option....this all in one package has its advantages. You can just charge all your devices by plugging in the bag at airports or when you get home. The standard 3000MA is not the biggest battery but its great in an emergency for tablets and more than enough for phones.
