Update on Ebay wall chargers.

In an earlier message I mentioned that some $2.86 USB wall chargers I got on Ebay did not work with the Sansa Fuze.  For it to work, pins 2 & 3 have to be at about 2.5V.  On these chargers, pins 2 & 3 had 0.0 volts. While they would work on other devices they wouldn’t work on the Fuze.  This is because when pins 2 and/or 3 are at 0.0 or 5.0 volts, the Fuze thinks it’s in read or write mode.

I finally got some 2.5V zener diodes and made the mod bringing pins 2 and 3 to 2.5 volts.  The modded wall chargers now work fine with my Sansa Fuze 4G.  Material cost?  About 5 cents.
