Default Creative Xmod power adapter

Well, I'm biting on the Xmod ($40 from bestbuy or Amazon with rebate) and so am looking for a power adapter (my main use is for using the a xmod with a player and powered speakers in my kitchen (no puter, plenty of outlets)).

I searched ebay and came up empty but I'm guessing I did a poor search...

Could someone point me to an adapter, please.

Link to Creative's $40 version:

Thanks. This is the kind of thing we're talking about, isn't it ZC?

I say it is only because it is good for most of the same products as the Creative adapter (ZEN Neeon, ZEN Micro, ZEN MicroPhoto, ZEN V, ZEN V Plus) not because the invisible specs indicate it.

Speaking of invisible, why do I feel like I've stepped into a one-sided conversation?

Okay... Taking a look at the Xmod, its power requirements are 5VDC at 1A. The power adapters you've linked should be just fine, as should a PSP charger or any wall charger suitable for the ZVM.

I hoped you were there, somewhere. Thanks.

When and if you feel like it, your two cents on the Xmod...sorry, don't bother: it's been well vetted, I guess.

Not much noise on this site, though.

Got one of these chargers. On it is written: output:5.5V~700mA

Is 5.5 instead of 5.0 or 5.2 unsafe, please?

5.5V should be fine. I wouldn't go any higher than that though.

Another solution might be a powered USB hub..... less possible problems with voltage mismatch.
