When I swapped to a backup Apple wall charger, it wouldn't charge either. Both of these chargers are known good (I used them Saturday at home), so I'm not sure what was going on.

Next time I'm on a 763 I'll take a lower-power device and see if I can USB-charge it.
Once again, this article goes in to great details on Apple device charging. The USB ports on the 763 are from the days of the iPod and predate the iPhone/iPad. Starting with the iPhone 3GS (and iPad), Apple does not support the older USB SEI standard for charging that is employed by the USB ports on the 763.
