Hi! I was just wondering if anyone had a link to a site that sells quality replacement chargers for the Rockchip powered Apad/iRobot? Just purchased one and have heard horror stories about the sub par quality of the included chargers,so I'm doing a the smart thing and just buying a better one before I even get the tablet
Any help would be greatly appreciated,thanks!

Most people have just bought something off eBay, you need a 5v 2000ma (3000 is better) charger with a 0.75mm connector. That's a bit bigger than a nokia connector so don't buy one of those.

Thanks! I only have one question, do the chargers for the VIA based epad's work with the Rockchip based APADS? They may be the same rating, but maybe not the same plug size...need some clarification here.

Any good with a soldering iron? I bought one with a connector that was too big and fitted one the right size. It's easy enough to do if you know what you are doing but that kind of work is not for everyone. Maybe you know someone who can do that for you?

Unfortunatly,I'm horrible with a soldering iron,lol. I should just(and probably will) buy a universal unit,with many different plug ends,for Radio Shack here in the US.It will cost me more,but in the end its worth it for the waranty and service.

Charger For Epad ep07 7.0 inch touch screen camera tablet PC MID[/url]EU model.Charger For APad 7.0 Inch Touch Screen Tablet PCso i ordered one as a spare one, just fore sure.This charger has a 5v output for the red charge led apad,s.I don't know if the blue led apad,s have also a 5v charger, some apads need a 9v one.
Get it already here within 6 days !. never get something so fast with honkong post.the plug fits well on my rockship apad, and it is charging now, seems to work alright.the charger gets warm but not hot. charging time is the same as the stock loader.

Sorry about the questions,just looking for a QUALITY replacement,not one like the original crappy one
Thanks in advance for the update

Personally I wouldn't suggest buying anything with too high current. It does charge faster but eventually your battery will worn out faster if you won't fry it before.
Certain types of charger (those advertised as fast chargers) can possibly make a battery fail early but it's not the high current that does it, they use the batteries inbuilt circuitry to force the battery to charge faster. The chargers used for the Apads are not this type.A charger with a higher output rating simply allows the battery to draw more power as it needs to with less chance of the charger being overtaxed, but it's the battery that draws the power not the charger that forces the power into the battery. A higher current rated charger will not make a battery fail any sooner.

Certain battery protection from excessive current often handled by the charged and not the battery circuits. That's the main reason why I object against having high current without solid knowledge of charger and battery protection and stability properties.
