View Full Version : Car charger
Is there a device that can be bought so that you can charge your X5 whilst in the car, through the cigarette lighter socket so that you can listen to it on the move and keep it charged
Yes. You can get a 5v cigarette lighter adaptor with the correct size plug for the subpack, or you could also buy this: http://onlinestore.cowonamerica.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=138 from cowon.
I definitely replied to this earlier, weird. Tsayin where can you buy the adapter you mention? Not that I'll really need it with a 35 hour battery.
Nice find but I can't help feeling with all those cables you may as well get a line in cable (if possible).
It looks like you could also plug the power adapter into a subpack and use the line out instead of the FM transmitter. Of course that would be wasting money...
I know Radio Shack sells this kind of thing, but I haven't bothered to track one down.
How is it wasting money? You get all that with the X5 bar the fag connection of course.
Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant that you could buy the FM transmitter + power adapter for $50 and it looked like the power adapter would also plug into the subpack, but that wastes money on an FM transmitter that you won't use.
I just found out that the chargers (car AND home) for my Sanyo phone (which, incidentally, seems to be the same as for a Samsung phone) work with the X5! the only problem is that the car charger makes some interference noise with my FM transmitter :-( but hey, can't win 'em all . . . until i get my aux input going on . . .
Sorry Tsayin why wouldn't you use it?
The FM transmitter looks pants compared to the Ipod and iRiver H10 one. It has all those cables. You may as well get a tape converter or 3.5mm cable.
Both are going to give better quality. An FM transmitter needs to be neat or there is no point.
You get all that with the X5 bar the fag connection of course.
