Re: AC Adapter for Charging Sansa Clip w/o Connecting to Computer

FWIW, a Blackberry charger will work with the Clip, too.

Okay, another question - will any USB charging cable work with the Ziplinq charging adaptor, that is in Greig's post? (page 1, post #5)  I see there are phone charging cables available - I just don't want to buy something that won't work. Do I use the regular USB cable like I use for transferring files from the computer or is it specifically a charging cable?  (I don't want to fry my Clip!)

Re: AC Adapter for Charging Sansa Clip w/o Connecting to Computer

Sorry to bring up a slightly older topic but this one had most of the info I wanted to know. However one question I have is this. When using a Motorola phone charger, can I still listen to the music? My company wants to use an MP3 player for it's on hold music and that would require it to be constantly plugged into a power source so it never dies. Would this be a viable solution?

When plugged in directly to AC power, you can play the Clip as well (just not when plugged in to the computer, absent modifying the USB cable or using a power-only USB cable).

Re: AC Adapter for Charging Sansa Clip w/o Connecting to Computer

I bought an A/C wall charger on Ebay that had a reported 5 VDC/ 500ma output but it would not work with my 2GB Sansa Clip.  The charger works good with my Sansa E270 player.  The Clip charges OK using the USB port on my PC.  When using the usb port on the PC the Clip's charging light blinks.  When I use the A/C wall adapter it does not blink or charge ??

 

Does anyone know if the charging light should blink when using a wall adapter????

eBay is a convenient acronym for Caveat Emptor.

Either return the charger, or purchase one from a known vendor.
