This SIMA charger one works nicely. It is compact and comes with a auto USB charger as well. Plus it is only $14.



If you want to see more pics, i did a mini review on this product.

USB is a standard. Just like your wall outlet is a standard. You do not think twice when plugging lamp, a hair dryer, a toaster, or a blender to your electrical outlets at home. You should have the same mindset with usb.

But, keep in mind that some devices may not charge because there is not enough power getting to them due to underpowered usb ports or mulitple devices plugged into one USB hub.

The only way you can fry your MP3 player or other USB powered device is if the device itself is fulty or you have a faulty power supply or cable.

USB operates at a nominal 5v (4.755.25V) and at 500mA (half of 1 amp). Your clix will indeed recharge via your computers USB ports at 500mA. Now some USB power adapter do go higher than 500mA, but the device will only take as many miliamps as it needs. So if your device only needs 500mA and your charger is 2A (or 2000mA) it will only take 500mA to charger. So there is no worries about frying your player or other device.

Also if you notice that some players charge faster by AC/DC adapter as apposed to USB. This is becuase the USB standard will only supply 500mA as discussed before where as your AC adapter will probably supply between 1.5A and 2A. When some USB devices will see that there is more than 500mA available, they will use more amps to charge faster.

If your clix charges in your computer it will charge in this SIMA adapter.

Wrong. It does not charge with an AC wall adapter. It is the strangest thing imaginable. I purchased a 5 V, 2 A AC adapter off xpcgear.com. Tried it out and it says USB connected, but the charge animation does not happen. It does not charge. A reviewer on Amazon speculates you need XP to charge and I agree. Also, iriver tech support said no wall charger is available right now. I don't see how this SIMA one can be much different than mine... because mine definitely works (I used it on my phone).

^^^ Won't it be easier for you to post here (or any iriver fans site) first? As for the charging issue, it is listed on the manual that you can charge via a PC USB port.

Soooo, here I am in 2008 with a first version 2GB clix trying to make sense of this. There are a number of wallplug rechargers with usb connections to plug the usb from the clix into at the correct ratings people have listed here. Can anyone confirm these work?
