    Questions on USB Wall Adapter for Alias battery charger

    Instead of plugging my alias battery charger into my pc usb, I read in the manual you can use a usb wall adapter that is 1amp or higher in output.

    So I checked out what I have which is a Music Power Quartet USB Adapter from a old mp3 player I charge.
    http://www.directron.com/90274.html

    Im not exactly sure what the output is of this unit(1amp or higher???)
    But I do not own an IPAD or Tablet or even a cell phone.

    So I wanted to know what do you use or can you recommend in a USB adapter for the wall. I hate the idea of having to use my pc just to charge the batteries up.

    I wasnt sure on using this music power usb adapter either as there is no listing for output milliamps or amps on it. Didnt feel like ruining anything.

    My Nokia wall charger puts out more than 1 amp. Most android (HTC, LG, Samsung) wall usb chargers put out more than one amp. Its a good $5 piece to add to the best if your going on vacation! Definitely take this with you on vacation! I had the best time flying at night!!

    The output should be molded into the case or on a sticker. I've used cell phone adapters with 0.7 amp output with no issues--just seems to take little bit longer.

    ... I need that. 2.1 amps is awesome. It'll charge my 3000mah li-ion in my phone faster than my 1.8 amp phone charger.

    I use any USB phone charger that I can find. Although lately I have been using my Powerlab 6 to charge all of my batteries.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    About six months ago or so, I went to my local Wal-Mart and got a 'generic' USB charger. I am satisfied with it, especially because I can charge my Alias' batteries (as well as my DR-1 and QR-1 batteries) without having to use a USB port on my computer.

    Yea my venom pro charger is capable of charging the 1s so I'm able to charge it at 2c but i only do 1.5c to preserve the battery.

    If I wasnt in such a hurry the night I posted this I would have saw in the description for the unit I have (link I posted) does list the output. This music power by quartet is a 2 amp on a single usb and 1 amp when two units are hooked up. So it all works out and I didnt have to buy something extra that I already have. yay! lol!
    Although that is a nice usb adapter realstig. Ill have to keep a note of that one incase I do need another one. I only have a single charger for now. TH is out of stock on the double last I checked.
    Just did up my landing gear tonight. Got some snow so I had some time.

    I can also recommend Mark Twain Hobby shop. They are 10 minutes from my house and are great to work with. They will match online (www.hobby1.com) prices when shopping in person as well.
