Default How can I charge my sony mp3 player NWZ-B172F other than computer?

I bought Sony NWZ-B172F 2 GB MP3 Player few days before. It is working fine. I need to know if there is any AC Power charger/adapter which can be used to charge the mp3 player. I need this since it is not possible to have a computer/laptop around. Please help me out with this. Thank you!

I haven't used one of the B-series players before, but I would think that any generic 5V USB charger would work just fine. Just plug your Walkman directly into the charger instead of using a cable like you would for most devices.

Welcome to ABi

I don't have that model so I can't be 100% certain but if it's like all of the rest of the player I have any wall charger that delivers the USB standard 5 volts should do what you want. A plus to using a wall charger is that most DAPs will let you use them as you charge because there's no data connection that shuts off the music.

I have them from several different sources at different prices and haven't noticed a difference in their performance. I've read several places where people say those at higher amp ratings charge faster but I've never noticed much difference as long as the amp rating was at least .5 amps. I prefer those that are UL approved for my peace of mind. I've found those as cheap as ~$4.

gotta learn to type faster, MattMc3 beat me to it.
