These two chargers are advertised by Creative to be capable of charging the Zen or Zen X-Fi:

Universal Power Adapter Part# 70PD000000062
Zen Power Adapter Part# 70PD000000065

Both adapters are capable of outputting 2.4A. However they use pull up resistors on the data ends for recognizing and charging the USB players like the Zen X-Fi to limit the charging current.

This one here? This one may very well work, idk. I just wouldn't like to be the first to try since it isn't listed as being compatible (due to age) and would be afraid it would output a full 1A. I noticed the pinout here; and it is listed as not working with the Zen Micro's (Micro's have the same requirement to have the pullup resistors on the AC chargers as the the Zen X-Fi looks to require for charging).... so that tells me it doesn't use the pullup resistors which would make me afraid it wouldn't even charge the Zen X-Fi. The Neeon's battery I believe is about twice the capacity of the Zen/Zen X-Fi, so it can handle the higher charge current of 1A better.
