I know the Streak 7 requires about 5.4 volts and something well over the normal 500mA to chage so not just any A/C to USB charger will work. Anyone know offhand of a good source for an adapter that will charge the 7 and preferably has a folding plug or the like so it's streamlined and also something that's rugged. I don't want a cheap $1.99 cent no name piece of plastic.

Thanks

Any 5v 2 AMP charger will work.

I too am looking for an a/c charger and would love an affordable recommendation. Ive looked everywhere and I find chargers that are like $24 (way too much) or like a dollar (don't trust it at that price). Thanks alot.

I have one HTC 5V 1A adapter from my old Hero that works (folding plugs), also LG 5V 700ma works as well (from Optimus One). I am sure these are slower at charging but they do work. Would be good for overnight charging.

Any ideas on a good, AA powered USB charger? I know AAs will get eaten pretty quick, but I have some Eneloops sitting around doing nothing and I'd love to get a little more juice on the go.

Juice on the go. Now I have a picture of a white Bronco slowly fleeing the cops down the freeway stuck in my head.

Thanks. I guess as long as they work it doesn't really matter how long they take to charge. Hopefully with all the tablets coming out, a/c to USB 2 amp chargers will become more accessable at lower prices. Until then ill just use a 1 amp charger.

This is the only thing i could find along those lines. But the website looks pretty sketch so Im not sure if i would trust it. just replace the " DOT " in the link with periods, I cant post links cause im a noob

Thanks, I went on amazon and ordered a charger for a Palm, it looks really nice and it was less than 4 bucks, Ill post again when I get it with a link if it works.

I got that one, but it only worked for about 20 seconds and then never worked again. I got a replacement, same deal. It seems very cheaply made and heats up very quickly. I made sure my Eneloops had a full charge, too.

I use the newest iphone 4 (white phone) usb plug. The printed spec says 1 amp, but it works fine, I am assuming it is the same unit as the ipad, but a different sticker. iphone 3 plug did not work.

Yeah, i thought it looked shady. But hopefully the cheap 1 amp charger i bought will work. There were some promising rechargeable external batteries on amazon, they run like 60 bucks but they put out an amp and look like they are high quality.
