Replacing Power Cord For Edge

So randomly my eDGe stopped charging when I plugged in the power cord. I'm looking to replace the power cord with a universal adapter.
Any ideas on which of these would be best?

It will. It will just charge it a bit slower since it is just a 1amp charger and the edge's is 2.5amps. I charge my full sized edge with my pockets charger with the edge hibernating or off completely. Works fine. I'll eventually get a proper charger

Check Amazon. They have many listings for model # DSA-36W-12. Here's just one:

Does any one with any power charger expertise know if this charger would work with the EE?

http://dx.com/p/huntkey-chg50100-3a-...00-240v-175315

It's only $4.00 including shipping. I have bought from this company before and the stuff they sell is usually basic, but honestly described. It has a positive indicator in the center pin, as I am uncertain about the EE's polarity.

If it is compatible, it certainly would be a cost effective spare charger...

Simple answer NO.

Longer answer, 5v DC will NOT charge a battery that requires 12v DC. The EE charger has a 12v DC @ 2.5A output, any charger that will supply that voltage and current will work with the appropriate plug (centre positive). Also the current available can be greater than the 2.5A as long as it is at 12v.

Didn't notice the voltage, that's why we need you experts...
