I have an iAudio 9 mp3 player
. As with many of my electronic devices, it charges by plugging into a USB port on my laptop. I also have an iPhone and a Kindle which charge the same way, however, I have been able to procure adaptors that I can use to directly charge from a wall outlet with these two devices. I'm sure you've seen these; you just plug the USB connector into the adaptor and the adaptor directly into the wall.
My question is, can I use one of these adaptors for my iAudio 9? I don't know if there's something special about the power conversion for the various devices, so I don't know if I will hurt the mp3 player (or the convertor) if I try. Any electricity gurus out there have any thoughts?
