    Can someone point me to a cheap car charger that is known to work with the Pixi? I don't care about Touchstone compatibility, just need something that will charge via the microUSB port while the device is in use.

    There's lots of stuff on ebay but I understand the Pre/Pixi are finicky. For example, anybody know if this supposedly "Sprint OEM" one would work?

    SPRINT OEM MICRO ORIGINAL USB CAR CHARGER PALM PRE - eBay (item 220523638910 end time Jan-06-10 18:26:07 PST)


    Thanks.

    Don't chance the sub standard " Cheap" chargers. You'll be posting shortly after that , this that or other is not working on your device. I just read a post here on PreCentral early this morning of a member selling OEM chargers dirt CHEAP.

    Found it for you.

    I DO NOT KNOW OR ENDORSE THIS MEMBER , BUT READ FOR YOURSELF,

    However from what I read , if I needed a charger I would inquire in that post.

    Saw one at Frys for $3.99...

    I agree, don't buy a cheap one, did that one on an old phone, just threw it away and bought a nicer one.

    The one I linked to in the OP is supposed to be "Sprint OEM" and looks the same as the one being sold for $10. So I'm gonna try it. Thanks

    connector is micro usb if that helps. I just bought another usb cable on amazon that came with both a wall plug adapter and a 12v cigarrette lighter adapter for less than $3 I believe, plus another $3 for shipping. We'll see how it turns out.

    3253 is a toner cartridge. What is the correct item #?

    What about Touchstone capability (USB Plug) for the car charger? I have the charger on my dash. (It sticks there pretty good!)
