I have a new iPod Classic (120GB) and a Sony Walkman MP3 (4GB) (model NWZ A816), both of which are charged via a USB cable. So that I can charge them away from my PC, I have purchased a 'Travels Accessories' iPod and MP3 Charger kit which should allow me to charge them via a mains adaptor and also via a car charger which plugs into the cigar lighter slot - both adaptors allow me to plug the USB connector into them. The mains adaptor works well but the car adaptor will not charge either unit - it does power them, proving that the connections are OK, but will not charge either of them. In an effort to resolve my problem, the supplier has sent me a replacement car charger which has been tested and works but it still does not charge either item. I even phoned Sony UK who could not offer any advice.
Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know how to overcome it?
