I’m looking for an “officially blessed” by Sansa A/C wall charger for the 4GB Clip. Can anyone direct me to a specific product or link to one?
A google search finds some Chinese universal adapters on E-bay and such, but I’d prefer to purchase one that Sansa endorses/distributes for the 4GB Clip, if possible. A search of this forum also results in several hits for wall charger, but it’s unclear when sorting through them. And I don’t see one available on the Sansa store accessory page.
I don’t really wan to blow up my clip with any old adapter that is a “close enough” match with the Clip’s electrical specs.
I understand where you’re coming from, but even SanDisk seems to endorse general USB AC adapters (perhaps the reason why it doesn’t offer its “own” adapter). Personally, I’ve avoided the generic brands from mail order, including for return hassles if they don’t work out. I had picked up a “Macsense” charger from my local electronics store, which worked but which had a hum to it–needed to be returned. In the end, picked up a Macally (see above), which works fine and is fairly compact, with foldable plugs (but which is overpriced IMHO (I got it on sale–the only reason I decided to purchase it), even though it comes with a cable for other Sansa players (non-usable for the Clip)).
Also, you may want to check out Walmart at is website; do a search on charger or USB charger. They have a few different models, including a Kodak-branded model that has received good reviews. Of course, in the end, they’re all (or most of 'em) coming from China shops (including the Macally)…
