Arrow USB Power Adapter

So I'll be receiving my Sony PRS-700 soon. I know it doesn't come with any charger so I'm scouting around to look for one. The Sony Charger is a bit cumbersome looking.

I'm thinking of getting a USB charger instead. This is a charger that plugs into the wall and charges USB devices. Apple makes one that looks like this:



The URL to get to the product description on Amazon is here:

Do you think a USB charger can work with the PRS-700? I know that for the PRS-700, charging by USB takes 4 hours and by the regular AC/DC adapter socket takes 2 hours. But to me, I'd rather have the slower rate charging if the USB charger works with it. The reason is because the USB charger is soooo much smaller! One point for having an eBook is portability and if one has to lug around a heavy (not to mention ugly) cumbersome AC adapter, that defeats the purpose.
