RCA's USB Wall Charger, Just Plug It In!

"Most modern smartphones, tablets, MP3 players, and other gadgets rely on USB-based chargers. Some of these come with their own AC wall adapters, while others include nothing more than a USB cable-meaning you have to plug them into your computer to get them charged."

The nice thing about this thing is that you just plug it into the existing outlet, so it's basically a cover. No need to replace the current outlet so you don't have to worry about shocking yourself silly. And it goes for the small sum of $15.00 USD at Lowes (currently out of stock in my area), or you can get it at Amazon.com for $12.47 USD (currently in stock with both white and almond colored versions).

Inspiretech Zune 3 in 1 Charger Kit

I've never heard of InspireTech, but they have some Zune products that you might be interested in; first, they have the 3 in 1 Charger Kit pictured above - but it's clearly three different products in three different boxes, so it doesn't fit my definition of "3 in 1". Regardless, the whole thing is only $15.99, so it's an affordable day to get your Zune charged at home or in your car. It doesn't look like the prongs in the wall charger fold down for easier transport though, so that's something to be aware of. Inspiretech has an assortment of Zune 4/8/16 accessories, and all those accessories will also work with the Zune 80, Zune 120, and the Zune 30. I'm pleased that Microsoft has kept the connector the same throughout all the models - it sure makes things easier!

Microsoft's Zune Wall Charger is a True "World Charger"

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 05:47 PM



My friend Matt (who's going to be doing a lot of travelling about a month from now) asked me a question today about the Zune wall charger, and I learnt something new that you may not know yourself: in addition to pumping out a big 1.5 amps (most USB chargers like this only kick out 1 amp), it will handle 100 to 240v and 50/60mhz. What this means is that with the proper adaptor plugs, this charger can be used anywhere in the world to recharge your Zune (or any other device that uses USB charging). That might explain why it's quite a bit bigger than other USB wall chargers I've seen...
