Default Discovered a good power source for E140

I have a Sandisk E140 with a 2GB SD card. I like it, except for the battery life- mine seems to REALLY use power quickly. So I started looking for a better power solution.

I've discovered that the car adapter and AC adapter for a Motorola RAZR works great! It's the adapter with a mini-USB connector on one end- usually you can see through the package and see what tip it has- just be sure to get the RAZR one, and I think you're fine.

Anyway, I placed the car adapter in my cig lighter, plugged in the mini-USB to the E140, and sure enough, it lights up, finds my music and plays just fine, no problems whatsoever. I was so happy that I went and bought a similar AC adapter, with the same results.

Now at home or in car I can power my E140 indefinitely, w/o the battery.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone else was bothered by short AAA battery life. Enjoy!

JC
