Do NOT buy a new charger....at least for me I've found "usb" recharging
more versatile...I only use AC for my tabletpc....the big guns...all
else is in orbit around it.

Look into VEC414S (100w inverter w/usb and 3-prong size of cigarette
pack!) . It's like $42...a steal.


Also check out Boxwave's miniSync (for Nokia E62...same voltage as N800)
and VersaCharger PRO (w/airplane option).


You must use "special" cable for most devices...sigh. One would hope
mini-usb would do it...but you must get special cable doing some pin

Lastly (haven't bought this yet) check out Tumi's "Ultra Slim Universal
Power Adaptor Kit".


With combination of these items (at least first two) I'm pretty well set
for recharging my pdas, bt headphones, cameras, etc. Having 3rd item
(universal ps) just means I can mix things up a bit more.

To sync multiple items I have several "micro/mini" usb hubs...here are 2
smallest usb hubs I've found:


Tripp-lite is smallest but is less likely to "lay down" and look as
clean as slightly larger 5Port though.
