Default Charge Zen with "W"s adapter??

Just wondering if I can charge the 4GB Zen with the power adapter that came with my "W".

Don't know if creatives adapters are standard for all or most of their players or if the output varies from one model to the next depending on the capacity of each battery.

Thanks !

The Zen charges by USB... so any standard USB wall charger will work.

so the different numbers on every charger don't make a difference to how the zen charges?

I have the Motorola L6 charger and it works fine wity my ZEN. It's likely that the V3 charger is the same.

It works for me. I have worried that different USB connectors may have different voltages, but so far, that has not proven to be a problem.

The voltages on USBs are 5v, always. Its the current to worry about. Also creative have had a history of keeping aftermarket (non-authenticated) chargers from working, like the zen micro, zen v +

I dunno. I've heard it said that some adapters can cause permanent damage to your player so i'm a bit hesitant to try it.

Confirm this please, anybody?
