Question has a 3rd party cig lighter with USB port work fror you? - 12-18-2010, 10:46 AM

i tried 2 diff usb port: one was for my iphone, the ac adapter with a usb port.

the other is a 3rd party (non dell) dc cig ighter with a usb port on the end. i noticed that the dell car kit uses a cig lighter thingee also.

both wont charge my streak. only when i use the dell ac adapter does it work.

of course using the dell oem usb cable on a computer works too.

does the streak have a diff usb voltage setting or something weird they check for?

No, but the amperage is key here. Recommend finding one that puts out 1000mAH minimum, and up to a max of 1500mAH, that should correct it.
