PDA Woes

I have to return my PDA to Palm yet again because its battery still won’t charge. We never did find the power adapter for the cradle, so we bought another and returned it when it still didn’t work. And we tried a third-party product that’s supposed to allow syncing and recharging via USB without a cradle, as well as recharging in the car‐still no joy.

So back it goes, and I’ll wait for them to return it again. When they do, I’ll STILL need a power adapter.

I don’t suppose any of you have a spare power adapter for a Palm cradle, do you? I don’t honestly want to spend the $20 Palm wants to buy a new one, and it seems that they are proprietary in some way—you can’t just replace them with another charger with the same voltage. (US Robotics modems are similar, in my experience—you MUST use one of their power adapters.) I hate spending $30 on a new cradle to get a new adapter, too.

I was really looking forward to actually using my PDA to keep up with school stuff when classes resume on Monday!
