[maemo-users] help!? my N810 seems dead(ish)

I have had a 770 for some time and the charger that
came with it stopped working properly after a year due to wiring
problems. I also have a Nokia phone that takes the larger charger plug
so I bought a CA-44 charger adapter.  The CA-44 worked well but stopped
working after a while due to wiring problems too so I bought another
CA-44, which is still working well. Assuming you have the same problem I
would get a Nokia charger with the larger plug and an adapter.  Then
you only need to replace the adapter every so often rather than the
whole charger. Make your own decision though as my experience is with
the 770 and not the 810.

Maybe Nokia should just go back to the old larger charger plug size as
that seems to be a lot more robust.

For info my charger with the larger plug came with a Nokia 3230.
