    I've had two of my collection of Palm/HP Charging Cables die on my this year (after only one failing in the four years prior) so I'm only down to a handful of them. I'm pretty sure they were all technically TouchPad charging cables.

    Anyways does anyone have any insight on if the actual cables themselves are different from the Pre charging cables? All my A/C adapters still work fine so I'm just needing to replace a few of the cables. They work better than anything else I've ever come across.

    As far as I'm concerned, they are identical. I don't know if there is any actual difference, but mine have all been mixed up for years and they all work the same on all my devices. The only ones that have quit on me were either chewed up by the cat, cut by who knows what, and one had the jacket pull out of the strain relief on the phone end. None of mine have simply failed internally.

    Wish i had a few more too. Better than the rest for sure.

    What's interesting is i have a shorter one from somewhere. I keep it in the car. Really wish i had more of those. Let us know if you find a source.

    I think I have plenty of cables, but if you're looking for more, someone is selling lots of 5 for 9 bucks on eBay with free U.S. shipping. Check item number: 171932993807
    I have no affiliation to the seller, I was just prompted to look by TJ's post.

    No no no, he was inventive, nosy, willing to learn new stuff, exploring new things, etc....

    Sadly he was not smart enough to put it together again.

    Destroyed is such an ugly word.

    Thanks for sharing! I couldn't pass up that deal. Hopefully these new cables last several years at least. Even if I'm not charging a webOS device I still love using the Palm chargers.

    Made the purchase as well, thanks for the info.

    Picked up two supposedly new batteries as well. They sure better test at >1100mAh.
