Charging dolphin bluetooth hands free car kit

Instructions say to charge this item with supplied12-24v USB cigarette lighter adaptor in your vehicle. No mention of or facility for charging from an ordinary power point or even from one's computer. Don't fancy the idea of only being able to charge (initial charge requires 3 hours) from vehicle, as will flatten battery in car when car stationery and I need to charge it at home. Any ideas?

SOURCE: c330 will not charge using supplied cable

It should function now. If you have any further problems, try charging from the computer for about 10 hours. This sometimes solves problems like yours.

You must get a new battery. If the unit is still under warranty take the back to the place of purchase and tell them that the battery will not charge and ask them for a replacement. if this is not under warranty then you will have to buy a replacement battery. Call these telephone numbers for technical service and parts replacements. Service :1-877-467-4289. Parts replacement : 1-888-237-8289. Make sure you give them the model number or the unit and the part number of the battery that needs replacement. Hope this helps you with your problem.

If my garmin is out of charge, how do recharge it from the computer?

I own a Garmin also, it can be charged two ways first through your computer and second through a adapter that plugs into your cigarette lighter in your vehicle. The USB connector you need is available through Garmin but they are kind of pricey and so is the cigarette adapter for your car. I usually buy these items on Ebay they are much cheaper on there.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave me some feedback.

I got the Motorola T215 car kit, how long does it take to charge when doing it for the first time. It was put on to charge in the house at mid afternoon and the next morning the light is still showing RED...

I plugged the T215 into the cigarette lighter of my F150 Truck and it was fully charged within 3 hours. It could have charged faster but the time between plugging it in and when I went back to the truck to check was 3 hours so I'm not 100% sure exactly how long the charge took.

Brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490 T out of the box. How do I charge it? The only devices in box were a car charger (my commute is 5 minutes daily) and a USB connector? Should I just plug the USB into my computer?...

Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours.
Some cars continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter socket when turned off and others don't. If yours doesn't you can charge it from your computer. There's no indicator to show that it's charging or when it's charged. However when you disconnect the satnav from the computer and turn it on there's a battery state indicator which shows if it's fully charged or not.

Does this device charge using a usb cord?

No, you cannot charge the AirWave with a USB, you CAN charge a SkyFi3 only with a USB, but the AirWave (all XM2Go clones) require a 5Volt 2000ma (2A) power supply either a 'wall wart' or cigarette lighter plug.

I bought both the Nexxus Drivespeech Pro and the Drivetalk Pro, one each for my girlfriend and myself. The drivespeech comes with an in-car charger and separate USB cable. The drivetalk comes with a wired in-car charger. Can I charge the drivetalk using only the USB cable through a computer?

My garmin charges with my computer but stopped charging in the car

The most obvious answer is a possible blown fuse in the cigarette lighter socket or the in the tip of the charger plug. Most charger plug fuses are accessed by unscrewing the metal tip. Check both for good fuses.

If this doesn't solve the problem, make sure the points of contact between the charger, cradle and GPS are all free of dirt and grime. Don't forget to vacuum the cigarette lighter socket - especially if it is used as a lighter, too.

Can i first charge my tomtom 330xl on the usb port of my computer

If it is plugged into the car, you use the DC charger. You can charge it using the usb port on your computer as well. In the accessories section of you will find an ac adaptor as well that can be purchased to charge it to an electrical outlet.

Not charging

"car kit" would use cigar lighter for power. Nothing unusual about that.
If the red light does not come on, there may be an open fuse inside the cigar lighter plug.

Does Gogear charge via the USB plug or only via the 13 amp plug

You should be able to use the play side but I do not think you will be able to charge it.
The transmitter side is taken from the earphone socket.
The power comes from the mains plug via. the Philips lead and is at 5 volts.
I could be telling you wrong as I do not know what adaptor you are looking to purchase.

Nuvi 350 wont charge with car adaptor. But charges with ac charger in usb port of Nuvi. Any thoughts? I have another Nuvi 350 that does charge with this ones car adaptor.

Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).
