I know of a mini-USB charger that could revive you?
made by Disney?
There’s actually 6 extra pins. Some for audio, some for mic, and one to “turn on” rapid charging (if the wall wort gets signal on the switch lead, it’ll send extra current down the cable to rapid charge)…
there are only 2 and a half left.
HOLY DIS-functional Family Batman!
Pontiac Vibe, prolly. Or maybe haz power inverter.
Joining woot off a little late today. Better late then never I guess. But the way this is selling I might have joined at the end.
My G1 has the same “lopsided” connector on it, but the AC adapter it came with has a normal mini-USB connector and obviously works just fine. Although it’s a real pain trying to plug the phone in blind since the corners aren’t exact.
I was catching up on this inane discussion, missed the bouncey-bouncey [AND the weather station
Only 4400 of these? I thought there would be way more than that, considering how long it took.
Oh well, I got my three
The rapid charge really does make a difference. I charged my CLIQ from a 3rd party micro USB off Amazon that shows 650mA - then from a Motorola 550mA USB>Micro USB>CLIQ, and I would say it was around 4X faster from the Motorola 550mA charger. It charged it from 17% to 100% in less than 2 hours, where the 3rd party 650mA charger took over 8 hours.
And 12 times correctly too!
It helps a lot to yank off the rubber cover. Whoever’s idea that cover was needs should be fired.
That’s not true of all HTC Droid phones. My HTC Droid Incredible has a Micro USB connector, not a Mini USB. Most of the HTC phones are now Micro; however, you’re correct that the Droid Eris is Mini USB compatible.
Received May 28.
I tried charging my Sony Touch ereader with one of these, didn’t charge it at all.
Has anyone had any luck?
Does not work with our Motorola cell phones
Was not 100% certain they would, even though the description said they would – it’s a common mistake, thinking that a USB supply that fits will work. The problem is that the nimrods at Motorolastan rigged their phones so that unless it sees voltage on the data lines, it will reject the charger (even a computer via normal USB cable) as “unauthorized”. Cute way to sell their own chargers at captive market prices.
Many third party chargers include the five cent resistor needed to leak a wee bit o’ juice to the data lines, and, many people spend some quality time with a soldering pencil and rig it up themselves. Me, I’m old, lazy, and bereft of good eyes and steady hands – and, have plenty of devices that use USB chargers that DON’T need “cute”-stuff (and, plenty of Motorolafiend-friendly chargers), so it’s not a biggie. But, for someone with no other charger, who DID buy these solely for use with a Motorola, well, sorry.
