I finally broke down and ordered an Altec Lansing iM413. It's the respectable thing to do, of course, as I love the e200. I simply had to have one for the workshop too. I think it a nice complement to the "pop out dock" one I can carry about. This one's more for the desktop.
It's getting crazy, I have available docking ports everywhere I go now.
Have any of you seen the cool little USB remote battery from Macally? It's about 2 inches square, half an inch thick, and gives you a power source while you travel on those long flights. Very cool indeed. I think I'll have to try one of those.

I absolutely love my red Tweakers. I've lost the charging USB adapter. Do you know where I can purchase one? I know that they are very inexpensive but I though I would give it a try...

You mean this one (found on the manufacturer's website)?

Indeed, you are missing the wee USB-to-Mini B (female) adaptor. My little girls leave this bit in the craziest places. You can charge the Tweakers via the pull-out cable connection only, since the lithium ion battery is in the speaker with the power switch and blue LED. I found a picture of the adaptor:
At $4.95, I'd use the cool adaptor cable lsted. To use it, the pull-out cable goes into the adaptor, then the other end of the adaptor goes to the second Tweaker.
As a side thought, you can charge the Tweaker with one of the available "auxiliary battery packs" that have a female Mini-B socket as well.
I don't know if the little adaptor supplied with the Tweakers is readily available; they may be packaged one-per-set from the manufacturer in China, but you could call Grandmax to see if they have spares.
As a sidenote, I found an Apple-related site that made the same comparison that I did last year, going from the Tweakers to the Altec-Lansing OrbitMP3. Reading that this afternoon, I had a case of deja vu! Bizarre. I had no idea of the site until today, and this is from February 2009, same month a their review.
Edit: Hey, I win!! Here's the link. Their review is from 26 February 2009, after my findings.
