[maemo-users] N900 charging through "dumb" USB charger

I have a small gadget where you put 4 AA batteries and it outputs
power over USB. When plugging this into the N900 with the provided
CA-101 cable the N900 doesn't start to charge. As a workaround
I used a USB to round nokia plug + the round nokia to micro USB
adapter provided with the N900 and it worked: the N900 started
to charging.

The same thing happen when replacing my small gadget with a "power plug
to USB" charger.

Is there an USB to micro USB cable or adapter that would allow
the N900 to use "dumb" USB power sources?

Thanks in advance,
