I bought mine from eBay, so I am flying without a warranty.
Is there somewhere I can report this kind of failure separately?
Although IMHE large companies probably aren't interested in things

I just bought a Europlug (old Nokia) to microEuro (N800) adapter,
so I'm hunting for a suitable old Nokia charger that delivers 5v at the
right rating.
