Default Noob question - AC adapter for fuze

Hi folks,

After reading and reading up on the Fuze 8gb, I think I'm about to pull the trigger... (*Nervous twitch*). I've been waffling between this one and the cowon iaudio7 8g. I have heard the cowon has great sound quality, but has some touchy interface issues. Seems like Sansa (and Fuze) might meet my needs to replace my trusty (and dying) Dell DJ 20.

I've searched here for info regarding the use of AC adapters for the Fuze, but haven't found anything definitive. Does any View, Clip, or e200 Sansa adapter work on the Fuze? I really don't like the idea of having to find a USB computer port everywhere I go.

Also what's the easiest (and best) case to buy for the Fuze.... and where?

Thanks a lot.

PS: Any further pep talk in convincing me that this is the way to go would be appreciated. I am considering going thru Amazon.com, but might try to go by my local Best Buy to see if they have it in stock yet - So. Cal.

I bought 2 of these cases to go with the 2 8GB units I got a week ago.

Thanks for the tip on the charger (and the case too). Any USB charger will do?

I have a charger for my old Dell dj that's a 100-240 input - works nicely when I am overseas, etc. Anyone know if there are similar chargers out there for Sansa that would work on a Fuze?

You get a cable with the fuze, just need the usb charger to plug that cable in one end and the fuze in the other. You can continue to use it while it is charging this way for in the car for instance.

If you still need a charger, I just bought this one last night. You can't beat $13 for a charger. A Unique feature on this one is that it can charge 2 MP3 players at the same time. You may want that feature if you ever get another one.

These are from a really nice website and all of them have free shipping.

inexpensive usb/Fuze chargers:

White usb wall and car charger - $10 (can use 40% off coupon on site)
http://www.meritline.com/combo-white...00mah-552.html

Same as above, but in black.
http://www.meritline.com/combo-car-t...arger-502.html

2-in-1 usb car and wall charger - $13.50 (can use 20% off coupon on site)
*Update-not in stock*
http://www.meritline.com/usb-2-in-1-...-zune-151.html

I have the 2-in-1 charger and it works well.
For those that don't know, you can also use the Fuze with wall/car chargers (unlike charging via computer).
