Mine doesn't! However, the charger for my Motorola Bluetooth headset H680 does work! I'm glad, I didn't want to buy another charger!

Yes, apparently the iPod Charger model I have is an older one - seems like the newer ones don't work

That's really weird because all of the Apple chargers (and no name chargers) work on the iPhone and iPod but not on the Sony. Oh, well, a pin difference, I guess.

Exclamation General USB-Charger doesn´t work to the PRS-350!

Now my PRS-350 has arrived.
My first try to charge it with an standard USB-Charger failed (like expected!).
So I ordered a Blackbarry-Charger an charged the Reader with a running Computer. After almost 3 hours it displayed "charging complete".

Depends on the model number.
My iPod/iPod Touch charger model number A1102 with the Sony micro USB cable or a generic micro USB cable will NOT charge my 650.

I also have a cheap USB charger, and that wont charge the 650 either. (tried with both cables)

Not a biggy though as I have had just over three weeks usage (reading 5-7 hours a day) from the initial charge before the battery dropped to 3 bars...

Thats with a 4GB SD card permanently installed and loaded with all the books.

Blackberry Charger für Sony PRS 350

And it works.

(At ebay.de it is sold as a Charger for
"BLACKBERRY 9500 Storm Micro USB")

In opposite to charging on the Computer, it is possible to read on while charging with the Blackberry-Charger.
(Just the red LED shines, and the battery-symbol changes.)

I just received my Sony PRS-350 today. I'm charging with the computer, because the USB plugs I have from IFrogz and Amazon Kindle3 don't work. I used the Sony connection that came with the Sony and plugged into each of the IFrogz and K3. The IFrogz connection gives me a reading on the screen "stopped charging" and the K3 one does nothing -- keeps me on the home page and list of books.

Charging with USB to laptop is VERY SLOW! Why didn't they include a charger plug?

The IFrogz charger works with Nook and other items that I charge (except for an Ipod Nano 4th gen).

All reports say that the K3 charger works... the whole point of the external charger is that it doesn't lock the machine up with a charging message, it allows you to read and charge at the same time... look at the battery indicator when it's plugged in, it'll probably have a little lightning bolt at the side as well as the red light coming on on the top...

The 350 doesn't NEED a charger

I've found the 350 to recharge rather quickly with USB. Idon't feel the need for a separate charger at all.

Turns out it wasn't so bad after all. I should have just gotten away from the computer to keep from eyeing the Sony charge so much.
