Default Need to find a cheap charger for e345

Hi guys,

I've lost my USB charger for my Sony NWZ-E345 and need to find a cheap replacement. I live in the UK and my only option is a Gimadic one from at 15 + 5 P&P.

There's LOADS from American websites that are very cheap but they don't seem to deliver.

Any ideas?

I got the impression from another poster that you could buy a mini USB charger for a phone? Is this true? I've tried other mini-USB cables but they don't fit.

If you have the Sony E345 then it should use a USB Mini connector cable. The ones you tried may have been the newest USB Micro cables, which is a popular standard now for many phones.

They look very similar, but the USB Micro is smaller, slightly wider and flatter than the older USB Mini.

This being the case you can simply get your hands on a USB Mini cable, connect to your computer/laptop and charge your device that way.

I do this everyday with my Sony E345.

Pics: best pic I found, the older Mini is on the left, the newest Micro is on the right:
