    I'll add that the Sprint Micro USB Car Charger Plus (extra usb port) does not work with the Touchstone either. The cords fits the touchstone, but the unit plugged in doesn't keep a charge.

    Pic and info:

    Such a shame too, because it charged my Tom Tom GPS perfectly!

    Not sure if reading your post if it works. Enlighten us, please. If it does work, can you get it in-store, online, or both?

    Edit: Is this it?

    I've already ordered one. I'll probably have to short pins, and the 1500ma rating is probably an outright lie, but I'll let you know. If it doesn't work, I'll probably be going with an inverter/wall charger solution. Don't like the inelegance of going DC to AC to DC, but if that's what it takes...
    As a follow up to this post, I did have to short the pins, and it still did not work. I heard a slight humming noise from the TS when I plugged it in, so I was initially hopeful, but placing my Pixi on it produced zero results. At least it did not fry my TS. It still worked when plugged into a wall charger.

    I'm going to get a cheap DC to AC inverter off eBay and be done with this. You can find 75W inverters for around $8-$12 shipped, which is less than what some of these DC to DC adapters cost.

    The Verizon branded vehicle charger that came with my Pre+ got in June of this year works in the car with the Touchstone.

    I bought my son two DSi USB chargers from Gamestop. Both turned out to output 1amp, and should work fine with the touchstone. $9 each.

    The Huawei charger that came with my Three UK MiFi works (5V, 1A) but the microUSB cable doesn't fit the Touchstone. I'm using the original Palm USB cable with it.

    Hello, these two babies work with TS :



    http://ec.transcendusa.com/product/I...ItemID=TS-PA2A
    http://ec.transcendusa.com/product/I...ItemID=TS-PA2M

    Transcend TS-PA2A/TS-PA2M USB Power Adapters are rated 1A and work exactly the same as my the charger that came in my original package and i have a warm feeling they will work with the TS as well. My TSs (I ordered 3 ) are coming in couple of days, so i will report how's the situation with them as well. They have a 2 yr worldwide warranty but I doubt anyone will bother sending a device in the $10 market for repair.

    I say as well as the charger since I'm in Bulgaria /Eastern Europe/ and i use an el cheapo converter to our two pin standard. In Govnah i get a stable 716mA charging current with screen off (less with screen on) from both. I know the TS requires 1A so fingers crossed this is just Govnah reading wrong or the phone not pulling hard enough. I'll report back in a copule of days.

    I bought a Bracketron Car adapter rated 5V, 700 mA and it doesn't work with the TS. It will charge via the USB port on the phone.

    I have given up on finding a DC-DC adapter for the car that works reliably with the TouchStone and have purchased 75 Watt DC-AC inverter from eBay for $10. It's coming from China so it will probably take a month to get here, but I expect it will do the job. The output voltage is European at 220V 50Hz, but the Palm charger is multi-voltage and will handle it just fine. I just hope the inverter has a decent lifespan and that it doesn't make too much noise.

    I have a DC-DC converter for sale on Ebay that I never used. Based on earlier posts in this thread it should work nicely with the TS.

    My touchstone got delivered today, but sadly it doesn't work with my Yiboyuan Pre/Treo charger (i.e. no charging notification at all).

    Could someone try their Touchstone on a Wii and/or Apple wall charger (image) and let me know if it works?

    Both the Wii and Apple charger charge my Pre successfully, and since I'm in Australia I want to know if I have a defective Touchstone before I order another charger.

    Thanks so much

    Is this the charger that has the additional USB port? I got the $9.99 deal (although it had gone up to $15) with a touchstone, this Verizon branded car charger, and a case. The charger works great with the touchstone.

    I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!

    Yes, the one with the additional USB port is the one I have that works.

    There are a few of the Verizon chargers. Could you perhaps post a picture of yours?
