Not sure how much this relates to the C1000 but I use the charger from my sl5500 with my c860. The plug is wired exactly the same.

Also, I have 2 usb chargers for my Z so you could charge from one of those new solar units.

Yah, that is what it comes down too: plug wiring. I'm not sure if the C1000 plug is wired the same as the SL-5600. It probably is, but I'm not willing to chance it right now.

I have a 5500 and 1000 and use the same Sharp charger for both. The unit that shipped with the 5500. Used it for both 110 and 220 volt countries with no issues to my 1000. Hope that answers your wiring question.

I have a solar charger by iSun. Damaged my 5500 by hooking it directly. The best way I've found is to charge a set of batteries and then plug my Zaurus into that pack. Check out the iSun with Battpak. The Battpak allows for up to 12 batteries and accepts a 12-volt car plug too. Gives you a lot of options. Using any car-to-USB charger gives you even more options for other devices.

I have an iSun solar power panel as well and also burned out my SL-5500 with it. I was correct in my decision to test it out on my cheaper SL-5500 before trying it with my more expensive C760. The problem is that if you hold the solar panels close to a light bulb, then the voltage of the device exceeds 6v/12v.

New PV cells always come in at 110%~130% of their nominal ratings (of 6v or 12v). They degrade over the years and reach like 80~90% after like 5years or 10 for the higher end ones.

A 7805 voltage regulator is a good insurance to ensure only 5v dc goes into your device. smile.gif

The iSun solar panel has a switch for 6v and 12v output. I was using the 6v setting, and I believe that the voltage output by the device spiked to 19v when I put the solar panel close to a light bulb.

I wonder if this would work, since it charges a PSP.

Juz picked it up and charged til the red light went off. Current was ard 5.15-5.27 according to my cheapo multimeter. Havent really did solar charging and running the Zaurus at the same time so until i have a chance to test the multimeter charging under hot sun, Ill close the panel while in use and open it up to recharge when idle.

Just noticed something while using the solar battery to charge the c3000. There is a faint but shrill sound coming out of the Z which stops when thebattery is switch off or unplugged. Did anyone noticed something similar while using alternative power supplies?
