You can get a wall charger, a usb, or car charger from Gomadics. I found the ALL of them on Amozon.com. The USB is your best bet. It will sync-exchange and CHARGE from your PCs USB port for about $17. Or you can go to philip.com and pay $60 for the original style cable.

First check the simple and silly stuff first. make sure there is no dirt or lint in the charge hole on the Kobo. Is the wall socket fitted with an 'on/off' switch? Make sure it is turned On. (Yes, I've done that!).
The chargers are quite easy to get and are usually quite cheap.
*Make sure you compare the old one to the new one to check the information and numbers marked on them match. Especially the "Input" and 'Output' information. This makes sure it charges at the correct, Safe level.
The numbers can be quite small to see so I take a photo with my phone and use the zoom feature to see them better.
No, that is not possible. That's because you need an ASUS-specific charging cable to charge either the tablet or the dock/keyboard (or the docked combination of the two). You can however use any charger with a USB-port that outputs at least 2 Amperes. So you need to buy a new ASUS charging cable (and a suitable charger, if you don't have one already)
SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 - NO POWER, BATTERY, CHARGING AND CHARGER ISSUES
No power, battery, charging and charger issues
This guide contains troubleshooting steps and advice to help resolve issues you may experience when attempting to charge the handset.
After performing each step, please test to see if the issue is resolved.
Battery not charging
Battery is not lasting long
Phone won't charge
Failure to charge
Display remains black or blank
Are you using the correct equipment?Make sure you are using an approved Samsung wall charger and USB charging cable. Other brands of charging accessories may have different voltage parameters and could cause charging issues when used with Samsung devices.
Have you charged your phone for longer than 30min?
Leave your phone plugged in to the charger for about 30min without powering on. In some cases, it may take slightly longer for your phone to charge.
Is the battery icon displayed on the screen when charging?
After charging your phone for a little while you should get a battery charging icon appear on the screen which will indicate that your battery is charging properly.
If the charging icon appears, leave your phone for a little longer before you try to switch your phone on.
If however, the screen is blank and nothing is displayed, follow the below troubleshooting steps.
Is the charging cable plugged into a USB port?
Some charging cables can disconnect from the wall outlet adapter and plug directly into a USB port. However, when plugged into a USB port, the charging process is much slower due to the limited power output of USB ports. Instead, plug the device directly into a wall outlet to speed up the charging process.
Is the outlet faulty?
Try a different outlet or check for a switch connected to the outlet. If possible, try powering a different device on the same outlet.
Does another USB cable, or wall charger work?
Charging issues can occur if either the battery or charging cable is damaged. Verify that the charging contacts are clean. If necessary, clean the contacts using a cotton swab and rubbing on isopropyl alcohol.
If possible, test the charging cable by plugging it into another device and seeing if the device charges. Alternatively, try charging the device with a different cable. This may mean changing out the cable or the adapter on two-piece chargers.
If charging through a car charging kit, ensure that the car engine is running, and if possible try to charge other devices using other cables, through the same car kit. If none will charge, then it is likely there is a fault with the car charging kit. It is recommended to continue to cross-test devices, cables, and car kits until the problem device can be identified.
If the device charges when using a different USB cable or wall charger, the issue most likely lies with the charging accessory. In this case, follow the approved charger repair / replacement process.
Also, if the charger is connected via an extension or other multi-socket adapter, remove this and plug the charger directly into the wall-mounted socket. This will eliminate the possibility of a fault with the adapter.
If you are still unable to charge your device, continue to the next step.
Has the phone experienced any shock or exposure to water?
Accidental physical shock to a handset can sometimes cause problems to arise with battery or charger, as these components contain delicate parts, particularly. Damage can occur either to the component itself, or to the component's connection to the motherboard.
Water exposure can also lead to damage of these components, however due to the slow way in which this type of damage can manifest itself, the cause may not always be readily obvious.
With any physical damage of this nature, the only recourse is to contact the device manufacturer, and follow their approved repair or replacement process.
Please clarify: what charger did you use to connect to an outlet? The Kindle 3 comes with an USB cable to charge from a PC or Mac computer and no charger outside for many countries outside the US (for other countries an external charger is available from Amazon as optional accessory). Use of a different charger (e.g. mobile phone charger with USB connector) is not supported, not recommended and may fry your Kindle if a wrong voltage is hooked to it.
Things you can try:
Use a different outlet to charge the Kindle.
If you use the supplied USB cable to connect to a PC, make sure its
firmly seated on both ends. Connect to a powered USB port directly on
your computer. Some external USB hubs do not come with a separate power supply
(external power supply is mandatory for an USB 2.0 hub, some cheap
models are sold without one anyway) and are not suited to charge
anything. Just to make sure, disconnect any other USB device except mouse / keyboard to check if the USB port in use is not burdened by too much drain.
The Kindle power LED should glow amber while charging and green if the device is fully charged.
Give the Kindle a reset pressing Home --> Menu --> Settings --> Menu and select
"Restart." If the charge light is on but the device is still not charging, contact Amazon customer service.
If the charge light does not light, the AC adapter or cable needs to be replaced.
Contact Amazon customer support for any warranty issues.
Go to Staples or Tiger Direct or Canadian Tire, or some dollar stores cary it too, Radio Shack , the Source etc.
Ask for reg -USB to mini USB, bring camera there so you can test it. You can get a 5 volt charger as well for about 12.00.
