Looking for an AC Charger?

I just picked up one for a PSP for $16.99 CDN from here: http://www.gocybershop.ca/customer/p...cat=326&page=1

Works great and let's you keep reading while you are charging!

Ps. Hi. My first post

I use my digital camera charger. The plug fits the hole, and it seems to work OK

We got a little doodad from Best Buy. It plugs into a wall socket, then you plug a USB cable into it. Works great for charging the iPod, etc. But it does not work on the 505, and actually seemed to be draining it. Only costed about $5.

Does it go in the mini USB or the yellow AC spot on the Reader?

You can't charge a Reader with a "dumb" USB wall charger and a USB cable. You need a cable which plugs into the "charger" socket, not the USB socket.

Right, the USB end of the charger cord plugs into the wall doohickey and the e-device end plugs into the 505 as usual. The red light didn't come on. And the 505 didn't heat up, so I figure nothing damaging was happening. I only let it stay like that a few minutes, before getting worried and disconnecting it.

The thingy is just a bit larger than a 3-prong outlet adapter and works sort of the same way, except with a USB hole instead of a 3-prong electrical cord hole.
