    A Pixi can be used with most miniUSB cables and the T-S with some miniUSB chargers with the following microUSB-to-miniUSB adaper found for $.99 (+$.88 S&H) here:

    Motorola Mini USB to Micro Adapter Converter charger C7 - eBay (item 260614522955 end time Jul-04-10 11:28:31 PDT)

    I bought 5 and the seller still only charged $.88 total for S&H and they came pretty fast considering shipment form Hong Kong.

    I haven't tested the one from this seller, but I had one of these lying around from an old phone and it works fine for data and charging.

    Clarified original post. T-S requires a charger and will not work off of a USB port on a computer.

    The charger you use has to be capable of putting out the 1000ma of current required by the T-S. Most microUSB chargers only do 500ma, and although that is enough to charge a Pre or Pixi (slowly) it is NOT enough to activate the T-S. HOWEVER, several minUSB chargers can put out 1000ma.

    Also, the Motorola adapter will physically fit fine in the T-S receptacle without having to grind it down. And, this is a great price. I paid almost $5.00 for the first Motorola adapter I bought....
