Need a power adapter for Pocket eDGe

I bought a new Pocket eDGe last month, and the power adapter stopped working less than two weeks later. The seller doesn't have a replacement and suggested I contact the manufacturer. Is there any hope of that?

Simple answer, no.

Long answer, check the old edge forum archive - there were several threads about just what you are looking for and where to buy them in the US.

Home-brew instructions are here:


and the reason that drove him to that, besides cost:

"It seems the trick to finding the exact one-voltage supply for an eDGe
is that the connector is VERY small for 12 volts at 1 amp."

That said, if you knew what to call the tip (3 millimeters, micro-doohickey, whatever) and the polarity (is the tip positive or negative?) you could probably find something exactly suitable, new or used, online.

In a previous thread on Entourageedge, I identified an exact part# (with help!) on MCM Electronics' site, but there is apparently no industry-standard way of describing that tip when it comes to fully manufactured power supplies.

Go to an electronics/convenience type store. Take your eDGe with you. Ask for a 12 volt DC power supply and make sure it adapts to the power receptacle in the unit.

Another alternative (in case you didn't see this) is to purchase the Energizer XP8000 xpal charger system - you need tip NB05. See this thread:

Link to adapter sold on Amazon:

Wal-Mart evidently sells the same or similar.

Welcome to MobileRead, TimLeonard!

As you can see, this is a good place to come when you have questions. Also fun if you just want to chat with your fellow eDGists!
