    Is there an ac wall outlet adapter available to charge my device? What should be its output?

    Any charger that supplies

    1) normal 5V USB at
    2) a minimum of 1.5A current
    3) with a USB Micro-B connector

    should work just fine.

    Thanks, I found a 5 volt dc output adapter in my supply box, but its limited to 0.7 amps. I have it charging my tom tom and if it is not fully charged by morning, then I will order one.

    Dollarama or Dollar Tree works good for me.

    700mA will charge it eventually, but would probably be unable to run the device while it is charging - for example, if you were updating the device at your desk, running the risk of having an update aborted mid way and creating a problem.
