    working charger

    My charger is starting to get damaged, I put some tape on the line because you could see the wires. Always been carefull, must have happend in my laptop bag.

    Now im searching for a working cheaper charger, because the one from acer is really expensive. Did any of you bought one and where?

    It must be an Europe charger I looked everywhere on the internet and forums and found some, but many comments say it doesnt work.

    One I found on the german amazon ( because it has the same plug): LADEGERÄT LADEKABEL NETZTEIL für ACER Iconia Tab A100: Amazon.de: Elektronik



    And last question, I read that the tablet can be 'cooked' because of an usb-charger, but can it be cooked by a charger you plug in in the tiny hole meant for charging? Otherwise I buy a cheap hongkong charger, then it might not work, but as long as it doesnt destroy my tablet its ok by me




    Thnx, really hoping for some help.

    the main thing is the output voltage and amperage need to match as well as the plug style.

    I bought a cheap car charger for my tablet and the first thing I did was to put a meter on it to make sure the output voltage was regulated to 12 volts. Since I could leave the tablet plugged in while in the car, I didn't have to worry about how fast it would charge because it never got discharged. Much better to spend a few dollars on a meter than fry a tablet.

    Bought this via Amazon UK - Acer 12V Acer Iconia A500 Tablet PSA18R-120P: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics -

    Works okay - the outer cirucumference is a tad thinner than the OEM (so it doesn't fit in snug and secure) and the cord is thinner as well (but longer thank goodness) - in spite of that it seems to work okay.

    I received it yesterday, it works great and doesnt look cheap. Finally a charger long enough to still use the tablet while plugged in.
