    Have any of you sourced a 2A usb car charging cable in the UK for the playbook. I have the Power Gen cigarette lighter charger with the 1A and 2A output ports but I need charging only cable for the 2A port (I think?) Thanks...

    Not yet, I live in the sticks and only get to civilization once in awhile. I rely mostly on online purchases.

    Yeah that's a nice bit of kit. I am trying to accomplish the same thing with one of these:

    PowerGen Power-U Dual USB 2A Heavy Duty Ouput Car: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    The difficulty is sourcing a "charge only" cable for the 2amp socket thingy in it. A regular usb data cable won't work in it

    Here's an earlier discussion on car chargers and various attempts to short wires on a standard cable to make it work http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...aybook-607253/

    If you can order from Amazon, this charging cable works: Charge Only PureGear Cable (Retail Package) for Universal Micro USB. It comes in a package marked ATT and is for charging only.

    It is the US Amazon site. Unfortunately this item is not shipped to the UK. I have just tried to order it.
