In looking for speakers that charge, it seems like the only one made for the Fuze is the Altec Lansing inMotion iM413. Am I right or wrong? Then I had an idea for using it while driving: I already have a 400 watt inverter. So my idea is to maybe use that inverter (plugged into the cig. lighter) to plug in the speakers to listen while driving. Then I wouldn’t have to rely on finding an unused FM station and buying another connection for that. Am I on the right track? Thanks!!! Judy
In general anything marked “Made for Sansa” will work with the Fuze. The Fuze hasn’t been out a year yet, so many products made for Sansa players don’t list it yet. But the Fuze uses the same connector as the e200 series, so if you see any mention of “e200 series”, the product should work with the Fuze as well.
As for your idea, it should work. Not sure how convenient that’s going to be, but it should work.

While the Fuze does use the 30-pin connector on the bottom, it is offset to allow room for the headphone jack located beside it. Not being centered makes a compatibility issue as it pertains to some docking stations.
For example, the Fuze will theoretically work with the Sansa Base Station, but there are only adaptors for the ‘E’ & ‘C’ series. You can plug it (the Fuze) into the base station with no adaptor in it at all and it will operate, but being supported physically only by the connector plug is risky. Any substantial bump & you could damage the Fuze, base station, or both!
So just because it says “Made for Sansa” doesn’t necessarily mean it is “Made For Fuze”. I’m hoping that they will come out with a Fuze adaptor for this station as it really works well and I use mine almost every day with my e280. I know they’d sell a ton if it could be used with the Fuze.
But like you said Skinjob, the Fuze is still rather new. I can remember a few months back where cases & skins weren’t even available for it yet. Not that there’s a ton of them out there now, but they’re getting easier to find and there is more of a selection.
Thank you Skinjob and Tapeworm (good name for a new rock band?) for your info. Okay, so what do most people use for speakers? Do speakers also charge the battery? I would like one that does both. I also want to get it right the first time. After that, I’ll think of something else. but first the speakers/charger.
