The unit uses power EQUAL to what it is being charged with, when plugged into the USB.
you need to leave it on the DC (cigarette lighter) charger overnight to charge it fully, or use an AC plug for the Motorola Razor (min-USB) to charge it in the house

Bought a MS wireless laser 7000, but cannot get it to work.


Hello

Basically, first thing you need to do is to connect the receiver and or charger to the computer, in some cases you might have a external power adapter that you have to plug in.

After that, turn on the mouse, if noting happens, place it on the charger and let it charge for a while.

you should have a green light on the mouse when it is charged.

Remove the mouse from the charger and see if it works, if the mouses light is green and it seems to be working, but your cursor is not moving, then find a connect or similar button from the charger / receiver, press that, and then press a similar button on the mouse, in most cases its in the bottom. Those two need to be pressed within a certain amount of time, to be quick about it.

Also make sure you are using a USB port, don't use a USB adapter to connect the cable to the old styled mouse port.

if your mouse still doesn't work, try a few different usb ports and restart the computer a few times. it should work.

My gamin won't charge


FIRST, make sure you have the charger recommended by Garmin. I made the mistake buying a cheap brand and it didn't work. That was a waste!

  1. Use the provided vehicle power cable that came with your GPS unit. The unit will charge while powered on and using the device as well as when the GPS unit is powered off and plugged into a running vehicle. About 3 hrs for a full charge. If the unit will not charge in the vehicle, check the fuse in the power cable for the unit and the power outlet in the vehicle.
  2. Use an AC power adaptor. Some units come with this power cable to plug the GPS unit into a wall outlet allowing the GPS unit to take a charge. For units that do not come with this cable, one can be purchased from Garmin's online store.
  3. For most units, the final way of charging the battery is to plug the GPS into a powered on computer with a USB cable2. This method of charging will be a trickle charge and it may take longer (like a full day) than the other two options, however it will still charge the battery. A USB cable is provided with a few GPS models. For those that don't come with this cable, one can either be ordered from the online store or you can use a standard USB to mini-USB cable that fits the unit and plugs into your computer.

Creative Zen Vision M won't charge it's battery.


check your usb cable...i had the same problem...

I have a usb cable that came with it ( or some other mp3 player i bought), but it is way too short, so i bought a cheap ($1) and longer usb cable. The computer recognizes the mp3 when connected, but it wont charge with the long and cheap cable.

Maybe you also have a long (or short) cheap usb cable...or maybe your usb cable is plain broke...
