hello everyone, i just bought a TomTom GO 400 and i love it! i would like to buy an AC wall adapter so i'll be able to charge it even when at home without a computer, anyone knows what are the recommended voltage to use?

i already have two AC wall adapter, they are for my samsung smartphone and lg tablet, they say:

LG
Input: 100-240V 50/60Hz 0.3A
Output: 5.0V 1.8A

Samsung
Input: 100-240V 50/60Hz 0.35A
Output: 5.0V 2.0A

can i use one of them attached to the tomtom usb cable (the one included in the box) ?

just in case. this is a sample of the wall adapter i'm talking about


thanks in advance!

Go 50; Go 520
I think either will do. (Some TomTom chargers provide 2.1A). So the 2.0A should charge a bit faster than the 1.8 adapter.

And welcome to TTF!! :)

Nominal USB 5.0V is required. Current requirement variable depending upon how fast he needs to accomplish the charge. Device will run on 500mA, but don't expect it to charge any time during the course of this century. Either of the two units he already has will get it done.
