    $1.99 each. FRYS.com*|*Palm

    The Fry's description does not specify Centro in the compatibility list. However this is the car charger for a a Centro, I've bought these from Palm in the past and this is the same model number.

    I think the low price is because this style of car charger is not on Palm's website anymore, and is being phased out (and replaced with this). Probably why Fry's is dumping them for $2 apiece. This used to be Palm's item # 2174410, (and they listed at $30).

    Who doesn't need an extra, you can get 2 including shipping for about $10.50. This is also compatible with a Treo 650, 680, 700, 750 and the TX.

    For anyone who doesn't know Fry's, they're very legit. And if you happen to live near one of their massive b&m stores, lucky you.

    Nice, thanks a 1,000,000!

    Or more accurately, thanks 36 because I was literally today just about to order two at $20 each from another online vendor and feel a little good about it because they cost $30 each in the store.

    Unfortunately this item doesn't seem available for in-store pickup when I placed my order, a bummer because there's a Fry's about 2 miles from my house and yes their massive B&M stores are flat out amazing if you're a geek. Imagine a place the size of a Wal-Mart but all electronics type stuff, and with prices cheaper than Best Buy and way more specialized stuff. For example, they have a whole aisle of oscilloscopes.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I ordered this yesterday at around noon eastern time with standard ground shipping. I was shocked to see that the package was waiting for me TODAY when I got home!!

    The packaging says SKU-3173WWZ

    Compatible with TX, LifeDrice, Tungsten E2,T5, Treo 650, 680, 700, 750.

    No mention of the Centro.
    I hope it works...

    I'm surprised there's so little interest in these.

    You can get two of these shipped to your doorstep for under $10, and they're original Palm brand, not third party.

    It works. It's standard Palm Multi Connector, see here if any doubt, ... or note the SKU here.

    I've ordered several of these from the Palm website in the last 12 months. It is odd that the packaging didn't mention Centro. That is the SKU # I got, and it works in all the Palm devices that accept that power connection.

    UPDATE: Fry's claims to be out of stock until further notice. I missed the boat by a day apparently and did not get any.

    I snagged three of them, hard to pass up that kind of bargain at $2 apiece.

    Fry's was probably clearing them out, but it wouldn't hurt to watch their site for a few days to see if any more stock turns up.

    The packaging on mine was dusty and the printed text had a copyright date of 2006!

    I looked at mine, and yes, a thin cover of dust, and a date 09/06. That's why the Cengtro isn't listed on the packaging.

    Bump, these are back again for $1.99, FRYS.com | Palm

    Thanks! Just ordered two. Very timely. Recently bought this exact same one used off Amazon and it was completely dead on arrival. Before that, bought an OEM charger (apparently Verizon, but it didn't say Verizon on it) off Amazon and it felt like it would break the Centro when unplugging.
