RE: I didn't try a regular 5V cell phone wall charger...

Most things I've read says the top hats from HiFi Berry (and others) improve with their own clean power source.
On top of your digi+ is a blank soldering hole labeled R5 ( I think...I'm at work) You can attach wires or in this case a header (Im obvs not an EE) to hook it up to a regulated power supply or battery or whatever to power it directly. You can go further and cut two of the pins that connect the top hat to the pi and then power the pi from another source to give each component a different power supply.
