Default Monster SlimCharger: Power For Your Zune

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.monstercables.com/productdisplay.asp?pin=4256' target='_blank'>http://www.monstercables.com/productdisplay.asp?pin=4256</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2007/monster_slimcharger_042307.jpg" alt="" /></p><p>The Monster <a href="http://www.monstercables.com/productdisplay.asp?pin=4256" target="_blank">SlimCharger</a> is a AC charger for your Zune, allowing you to recharge your battery without requiring a PC and USB port. The SlimCharger is perfect for recharging your Zune on the go, away from your Zune&rsquo;s &ldquo;home&rdquo; PC. When Monster describes this unit as low-profile, they aren't kidding. The AC adapter is very slim, thinner than the Zune itself. The prongs fold down into the charger, providing for an even sleeker profile when pocketing or packing the charger. The SlimCharger re-juiced my fully depleted Zune in about two hours. Unfortunately, the charger doesn't plug directly into the Zune. The SlimCharger requires the use of a Zune USB sync cable. At the opposite end of the SlimCharger is a USB port which your sync cable plugs in to, the sync cable then plugging into your Zune's sync port. Adding the sync cable to the SlimCharger's six foot cable leaves you with an almost unwieldy 10 feet of cable. <br /></p><p>Traveling with the SlimCharger will either require you to take your sync cable with you, or the purchase of an additional sync cable to keep with the charger. I would have much rather preferred being able to either plug the SlimCharger directly into the Zune, or have the included cable double as a USB sync cable which you could unplug from the AC brick. This would have made the $29.95 SlimCharger a much better value. You can pick up a SlimCharger at <a href="http://astore.amazon.com/zunethoughts-20/detail/B000JLL11C/002-0099813-9416065" target="_blank">Amazon</a> [Affiliate], currently on sale.</p>
