I lost my adaptor plug charges, so how?
This is not a complex problem, to find an acceptable charger for your machine all you need is some basic information about the device. First you will need to know the voltage and current requirements of the device. This should be posted usually as a sticker on the bottom of the device near where it would be plugged in, it should say something like 5 VDC 400mA this stands for 5 volts of DC voltage, and 400 mili amperes of current. Next you should take your device to a Radio Shack store they have lots of adapt-a-plug chargers with many voltages and currents and many tips to connect to them. All you need to do is find a correct tip to fit into your device, they have at the store an index where you can try different ones in your device. Once you have found a match you will need to locate either a home charger or a car charger with the EXACT voltage level as indicated on your device. I.E. if your device says 5vdc you need a charger that says 5VDC. Once you locate an acceptable charger check to see that the current rating is greater than or equal to what your device says. Most people think that a higher current rating on the charger will burn up the device, this is not true. The device only draws as much current as is necessary(trust me I am an electrical engineering student). Next the assembly of your charger is as simple as plugging the plug into the charger, there will be instructions on the box. The whole rig is usually less than 20 bucks, so its not too bad.
