Better idea...go to your local thrift store. They'll have a box of old "wall warts", or cell phone chargers. Buy one that puts out 4.5- 5 volts dc (vdc) and at least 500 mA (milliamps). Cut the cell phone connector off, and splice a female usb plug to the adaptor. on the USB cord, you want the red (positive) and black wire (negative). Make sure the splices won't touch each other and short. Hook the computer sync cable to the female USB connector, and voila, USB wall charger. This trick will work for any device that is powered or charges over usb.
