Alternate battery charger

I can't find a 5v2a charger. There is one on ThinkGeek (http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/tra...b/?srp=23#tabs) that claims to be a 2a device, but I haven't tried it yet.

Is there any way to change the output of a laptop / PC USB port to 2a? That might solve the problem.

That said I find this surprising. I would've thought the Vox would at least accept a lower charge. I can see myself forgetting my Vox charger at home when I travel. I doubt very much you could buy the appropriate charger while on the road. At least for under $40 or $50 which I would find highly irritating.


Agreed. Another foot or two would've been nice.
