Check in ebay.

Also, you can get one in RadioShack. Only confirm the following:

1. AC power adapter with 5V @ 1.5Amps (minimum current, but it may be 2 Amps as well).
2. Plug tip type H
3. The center conductor is the positive contact.

Best regards,

My Thompson Lyra H208 is not charging battery. I have plugged it in to computer

Not sure why this may be happening but you can buy universal USB chargers so that you can charge the MP3 without connecting it to a PC (Just to check it is actually rechargeable. The more things are charged and discharged the less life they have. If it is opld it may just be a little tired). They only cost about £3.99 from online shops (Some with free P&P). Thay are also very low wattage so are cheap to use. They can also be used as a power supply if you are using the unit at home. Maybe this will do the trick to get round the problem.

Whenever i try to charge my motorola krave, i get an error message saying "unauthorized charger" and my phone doesn't can i charge my phone?

There are two ways: since Motorola phones use mini-usb, you can connect it directly to your pc via a mini-usb cable- it should charge that way. The other way is to get a new motorola branded charger- they run about 10-15 dollars at your local big-box retailer. If it still does not charge with known-good cable or known-good charger, then the hardware in the phone has faulted and you will need to go to your carrier and ask for a safety-related replacement (electrical issues = safety issues in my book!)

I need to charge my DS lite but I lost the charger, I don't want to buy a new one, and just telling me to go buy a new one won't help me. I also tried to turn it on really fast and close the lid, which...


You can charge the DS lite via a USB cable. Simply connect to your PC or laptop and as long as you have a cable with a mini connector on one end this would work.

They are quite common for different devices like cameras so if you have one of these lying around thats a good way around it for you.

See link for an example of what I mean.

These cameras can't be charged via the USB because there is no charger built into the camera. You will need to buy a new charger.
