Post Who is intrested in an EXTERNAL battery charger? - 01-12-2009, 06:09 PM

I have the capability to produce an actual external battery charger for the dell mini 9. it will be a stand alone unit that will simple use your existing charger and adapt it to charge your battery with out it having to be plugged in to your mini 9.

This will be useful if you have two batteries and do not wish to have to charge the battery with it connected the mini, but instead have a battery charged and ready to go when your other battery is low in your mini. simply swap the dead battery for the charged one.

Who is interested in me producing such an item? Please comment if you would like one and what you think the price should be.

Thanks!!

If it's under $50.00 USD, I'll take one.

It will be under $50 for sure. most likely around $35-40 depending on manufacturing costs.

keeping with the small and portable theme of the mini this charger will be very small. maybe 1/7th the size of the battery. it will be light and easy to transport.

Would you be able to post some pics of the finished product in the near future?

I'm interested and the price does seem quite reasonable, but I still need to purchase another battery, but it does seem an external charger would be a must-have accessory.

i will be able to post pics when i have some built.

the limiting factor right now is the pin out configuration for the battery. if anyone knows where to find a diagram or can tell me the configuration i can start production soon.

any info will help! thanks guys and gals.

He he he, the only reason I said I'd buy one was I figured you had the connector figured out and $50 to save myself some time seemed a good deal to me. :mrgreen: P.S. I'll still buy one if you figure it out before I do. :mrgreen:

I don't want to rain on anyones parade but I recently bought this power adapter off Ebay and while it is not 100% exactly like the Dell OEM one, it is 95% close enough (it is a little larger but otherwise very identical). I have been using it for a little less than a week with no issues or problems... It shipped from Ca so I got it in a couple of days USPS...

FYI, it is $30 with free shipping..

well im glad you got yourself a good battery charger but that is not what we are talking about. this will be a unit that will use that charger and will allow you to charge the battery WITH OUT having to have the battery connected to the computer. with just that charger you have to plug in the computer to charge the battery. my unit will charge the batter itself with no computer needed.
