Greetings all,

For travel purposes, is there an universal AC adapter that can be used for the Sony 505, Palm PDA and cell phone?

thanks for your input!

What I do is use a USB wall adapter and USB charging cables for each device. I have a PSP usb charging cable, which has both a mini-USB and a AC plug, to charge my reader. I know USB charging cables for Palm devices are easy to find for fairly cheap. If your cell phone charges from mini-USB you may be able to use the multipurpose PSP cable I mentioned above for your phone as well as your reader.
You can buy the PSP cable at amazon for about $11: http://www.amazon.com/Insten-2-1-Dow...dp/B000F1TNCA/
If your Palm uses the "universal dock" attachment, this eforcity cable at amazon is only 8 cents! http://www.amazon.com/Eforcity-Charg.../dp/B000EG6QDK
And for 69 cents here is a USB wall adapter: http://www.amazon.com/iPod-Travel-Ch.../dp/B000A2BLEC

I guess that depends on your cell phone. You can charge your 505 with any gizmo that charges the Sony PSP. Here is one:

You'd have to get other tips for your PDA and phone. The other strategy is to take a USB wall wart and USB based cables for your devices. Here is the cord for your 505:

This approach only works if your phone and PDA have USB-like ports for charging, or someone sells adapter cables.
