    hey forum. Need some help. I am traveling and need some advice. I am looking for a dual USB ac adapter. Powerful enough to charger the touchpad and the pre-. Its been hard to find one and the 2 amp chargers I have found split to 1 amp each when both usb's are in use. I'm not to smart when it comes electronics so some help would be nice. Or just tell me what to look for.

    I found this but I don't know if it would work

    Where are you traveling? That Belkin is 110v only so no-go in many countries.
    ...and LOL, it says it can handle 36000 Amps. No way.

    That Belkin charger is huge, I've got one. You'd be better off carrying the two separate adapters, not to mention that I'm pretty sure it only puts out 0.5A on the USB.

    Just going across the country. Do you know any charges that will charge the touchpad and pre through usb at the same time?

    Newegg.com - SCOSCHE Dual-USB AC Adapter USBH3W

    This one appears to have a 2.1 A connection and a 1.0 A connection. Here's the manufacturer's page: reVIVE II - (White) Dual USB Home Charger for iPad

    So that should be able to handle it easily.

    does this charge your touchpad? one of the comments says that the center pins on the USB are not shorted so full power is not given to the device

    I gave a link for one that works.

    thx. i saw the link... i was hoping to get more recommendations for more slim-profile ones, because i travel with a really slim briefcase with a MBA and now the TouchPad. there's literally no room for anything thick/bulky.

    Ah...well you're looking for > 2 Amps so it's not going to be tiny I'm afraid.
