charger for Zen Neeon 1GB

by timtam7989 / August 13, 2006 5:21 PM PDT

Hi,guys! I just recently bought the Zen Neeon 1GB and I must say I'm quite happy with it,good value for money. I'm just only a bit dissatisfied with the fact that Creative didn't include an AC charger and when I charge it thru USB I cant use it at the same time. I understand that a seperate AC charger can be bought but I'm currently using a Motorola L7 and charge it with an AC charger via the mini-usb port on the phone. I've checked the voltage ratings on both the Motorola charger and the Creative AC charger and their both rated at 5V at 1000mA. Can I use my Motorola charger to charge my Zen Neeon with the without frying it? And if I do have to buy the original Creative AC charger,will I be able to listen to music and charge the device at the same time? Thanks in advance for your help!
