    A100 car charger: "G" connector

    A standard size "G" power connector fits the A100, but its OEM power connector is not a size "G". It's slightly fatter than a G. A "G" fits and works, but it's not as snug as the OEM connector. When plugged into a "G" connector, the A100 occasionally stops charging and the connector has to be wiggled gently. This is never necessary with the OEM connector. One size larger than a "G" is too big to fit, so the "G" is the best I've found.

    Has anyone found exactly what the A100's power connector really is?

    I got the car charger sold at Walmart and use the G connector. I took a pair of needle nose pliers and crimped it ever so slightly.
    Now it fits snugly. But if you crimp it too much and it doesn't fit, don't blame me.

    I just found this car charger on eBay.ca (seller is in California) but I imagine he lists on eBay.com as well. Listing says it's 3000mA. I just bought it, and will let you know how it performs after I get and use it .

    Crimp as in bend?

    Photo would be nice.

    Crimp means squeeze, not bend. It wouldn't show up in a photo, unless taken with a microscope.
    For me, this charger has worked very well. A slight crimp tightens the fit so the plug doesn't fall out.
    However, I'll repeat, you have to be careful or you'll just ruin the tip.
    I suggest starting out slowly and gradually increase pressure and keep testing until you get a slightly tight fit.

    Thanks - went different route.

    Started new post with both our methods so other model users will see them and not ignore them because they're in 100 forum.

    Ranger - Thought about it and used your method too.

    REAL sung fit. Took several tries to get right amount of crimping - over did it at first.

    Walls must be "-" also not just fingers.
