Compaq iPaq the PDA? or the iPaq the thin-client?

I might be able to dig something up from my retired-gadget-drawer somewhere...

They're quite hard to find. Plenty of 5V chargers around with USB connections, but they're usually 1A at most.

I was looking for one a few years ago, and the only ones I could find were Sony PSP chargers (genuine or third-party).

I just ended up buying a cheap 12V/5V switching mode power supply (which I didn't use in the end), but getting a PSP charger may be your best bet. Don't know if the plug they have is the same one you need, but you can always solder on a new one.

Jaycar sell 5V adapters but they're only 1A - I've purchased a few in the past. The only disadvantage of one of these is slower charging time.

If thats all the difference is, then i can live with longer charging time :)
I'll see what the others come up with over the weekend, if no go then might try a 1A one from Jaycar.

Cheers

You should be able to get a cheap knock-off on trademe for $10-15. Of course, you never know how well it'll work.


Also, even if you only use a 1A charger, it'll probably work. Won't charge as fast as the 2A, but it should get there eventually. No guarantees though.

EDIT: I see sbiddle has already mentioned this last point.

looking at the photo, It appears you are replacing a UK version.

If you cannot find one that does the trick, you could always just glue an UK-NZ adapter on the wall-wart as a backup
