The device must be charged with 5v and 2A.
As long as the generic charger suplies those values,
you should be fine...

Need a charger for a Kawasaki power wheels 4 wheeler model: new ninja. What kind do i need for a charger 12 volt for this?

I suggest you refer to the instructions for the specification.

The first requirement is fitting the charger socket and the next is having the correct polarity.

The type of battery is important and the required charge rate/time is also important. A lead/acid battery should ideally use a constant voltage charger. Ni-cads and similar should ideally use a constant current charger.

The vehicle might have it's own intelligent charging circuitry and just need a power supply but if this is not so then the more sophisticated the charger you buy, the longer life the batteries will have.

I can either charge my GPS or Use it, but not both. I used to be able to do both at the same time.

You are using the wrong car charger. You need to get an OEM garmin car charger as they are built to specifications. Other generic chargers do not provide the right specs to power the unit properly and thats why it goes into "PC" mode.

Lumix DMC-FZ50 will not power up. Tried 3 batteries and 2 chargers, no luck. tried turning on and off, changing luck. Suggestions?

If this camera is like my FZ20, there is a socket to provide power to the camera from a mains adapter. The input socket is under the cover where the USB lead goes, and the manual shows a lead attached between this and a battery charger. My battery charger does not have this lead or DC output, though. The one that does is an optional extra, part DMW-CAC1. The manual recommends using the adapter to power the camera when it is connected to a computer, to make sure that a flat battery doesn't cause the memory to become corrupted.

My suggestion is that you attempt to power the camera through this DC power input, either with the approved adapter (maybe one of the chargers you are using has the output?) or with a generic one. I have successfully used a generic 9 volt adapter on my camera (positive center connector).

If it will power up with an adapter, I expect there is an issue with the connections in the battery housing. Otherwise, it might be a more fundamental fault.

I dont leave the Garmin in the car for fear of it being stolen (first model was stolen). So I put the Garmin in my purse which then got a quarter stuck in the card slot. Is this fixable?

Yes, but most likely the unit will need to be dissassembled. I would not use the unit with the coin inside as it can short out power leads that power the SD card. It may damage your Nuvi. I have fixed this problem before.

Dell studio 15 in car charger

Most ac/dc car chargers will state which models they support, by model number. I'd look at your power supply to see what the wattage rating is on yours and compare it to the replacement.70-120 is common in the replacement units.

LEDs out.  If power cable is pulled and replaced or if the plug is jiggled the lights flicker for a few seconds then go out.


Based on your post of intermittent power (more often out) is indicative of a cold solder or loose connection specifically with the jack at the back of the unit. They are often soldered to the main board and only two (2) connection points. Corrective measure entails opening the covers exposing the bottom of the board and re-soldering (with a little dab of soldering lead).

In some case, it could be the plug that has a problem and would require generic replacement. The polarity has to be observed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
