Is there any way to change the output of a laptop / PC USB port to 2a? That might solve the problem.
I bought an iHome iPad USB charger last week. it's 2 pieces, the charger that you plug the usb cable (which I can't use with the Vox) into is 2.1 A and used with my Blackberry USB cable works fine. The only issue is that the battery indicator doesn't update to the correct level but after I plug in the original charger and then turn the Vox off and on again it adjusts. I'm using the new one as much as possible because the original has a pretty flimsy wire and I am concerned that it may break fairly quickly with constant use. My BB cable is quite long, it's about 45 inches... plus the prongs on the charger fold up for travel!

Amazon sells a version with both the wall and car charger for $39.99...
