You can buy a charger for the Play Station Portable -- it charges the Reader just fine.

As for more zoom that is built into the Reader, there isn't any way I know of other than reformatting the book using a larger base font.

As long as you don't have an external charger, you can always charge via USB using the cable which comes with the reader.

Hi, there, Shehabi:

The Sony charger is very versatile and is worth purchasing if you live in an area of the world that uses these voltages and Hz:

Input: 100-240 volts; ~ 50/60 HZ (0.26A)

Output: 5.2 volts

I'm currently living in Peru and there's no problem with using my Sony Charger. This country has two standards for the adapters, the three-pronged grounded variety and the two round prong type. My house has both AC wall adapters so I can plug it in anywhere.

Hope this helps.


Don

Shehabi,
Regarding your MP4 charger. You will have to look at your charger to see if its DC output is 5V or there about, you will also need to see if the plug is the same size as required by your 505 and finally you will need to check if the polarity of the plug is the same as used in the 505, (centre positive). Then there is the question of the output current the charger is rated for, the Chinese PSP charger I use is rated at 2A, I do not know if 2A rating is actually required but if you use a charger that is rated at a lower current that the 505 pulls you will damage the charger.

Now if you don't understand the above ask someone you know who does before you use the MP4 charger.

Craig.

Q: I am just have my PRS 500 today but it without charger It's realy if I want to cahrge it I must link it with USB ?
A: See answers above. You also note in the title PRS505 and in the body PRS500. This may effect the way you charge especially when the battery is completely dead.

Q: and I want to zoom some books more than the normaly zooming , is there any way?
A: If I understand your question the easiest way is to start off with a larger font size in the original document (if you are converting your own files) I find that 16 point in an RTF file is a good starting size and zooms quite large. If you are buying pre-formatted books I believe you can't change them.
