  1. Does anyone know for sure if the USB wall and car chargers are able to charge all kinds of USB-powered devices? More specifically, I got this $10 Belkin USB car/wall charger that said it was for charging iPod Shuffles, but I want to use it with my Zune. I don't wanna try it out before I know if it will or will not screw somthing up. My guess is the chargers are universal but I don't know for sure.

    I am almost positive that charger will not work with the Zune. Does the end that will connect to the Zune even fit?

    Yeah, it's USB. Every USB cable and device physically fits in the charger.

    Your saying it WILL fit the Zune?? If so what is the part or model number of this cable? I need one for my Zune!

    I can't find anywhere what the power specs for a Zune charger and an iPod charger are. My Belkin charger says its output power is 5V and 500mA.

    I dont know so much about that one. I think later on I am just gonna buy the pack for the Zune that has the charging base, car adapter etc. I think its around $89.00 US.
