Default Wall cord for speakers.

I think a few people around the forum have purchased these speakers from DealExtreme.(KaiDomain may have them) Using batteries with them gets a bit annoying because as the batteries die, the audio gets more and more distorted at high levels.(or this is at least my experience) The include cord only works from usb.(why would you use those little speakers beside your computer?)
I was wondering if there was a possible mod for it to plug it into the wall?

What about a USB wall charger?

I was more thinking of something along the lines of a mod that one could cook up with stuff around the house.

I don't know these speakers, but as with any electronics, you can open them up, check the number of batteries, multiply by 1.2 V (rechargeable) or 1.5 V (alkaline) and you get the needed voltage. Then you install a plug for a variable voltage power adapter, both available at electronic parts store. Or you tap in directly on to the USB port with a 5 V power adapter. Both methods require a minimal knowledge of basic electronics and welding, but it should be easily done if you do.

if you can find a wall adapter for the USB charger you could use that, I know the T9 has a wall charger that you plug the USB cable into then plug the usb cable's other ends into the T9 and the wall charger into the wall, it looks like a little wall plugin with an adapter and a usb plugin on the back end, it's about 1-2" long and about 1-2" wide and around 1" thick, not very obtrusive at all. this used with a USB extension cord would be very nice
