Onite Acer Iconia Tab A500 A501 A100 Acer Iconia A510-10k32u 10.1-Inch Tablet Wall Charger, Compatible with Acer Iconia Tablet A500 A501 A100 A200 7" 10", 12V 1.5A Custom Made DC Pin $14.99 and Free Shipping.

So far it works well, I don't use my tablet while it's charging, so I don't know how it holds up drawing that much power, I use the acer dock when charging, with the tablet on and screen off. My old oem cable had a short in it and it finally gave out. . This has a much longer cable than the OEM. So far it seems to be charging fine. I'll keep everyone up to date on any issues I find.

Well it's been two days and the charger still seems to work fine. It charged the tablet from dead to 100% on the first day no problem. I may buy a spare to use elsewhere around the house.

Thanks I have always hated the short power adapter that came with the tablet. I might have to pick one of these up soon.
