Sl-c1000 Questions
« on: October 19, 2005, 12:29:29 pm »
I've been looking at the specs and am still a little confused and I just wanted to make sure. As some of you know, I run a website on using the Zaurus as a pen-test device:

http://irongeek.com/i.php?submenu=zaurus/z...urus/zaurusmain

Well, I fucked up and fried my old 5500 and am thinking of getting a sl-c1000. Here are my questions:

1. Can I still use my old 5500 charger on the c1000? I want to have a charger at work and at home so I was going to reuse the old one.

2. If I understand right, the c1000 had 128MB or ROM where it stores the OS and apps I can install. It also has 64MB ram besides that. Is that correct? I use to alwats run out of space on root on my 5500 (16MB ROM for root I think) and had to ipgk-link everything to RAM, is that less of a problem now?

Thanks.

1. The C1000 has a charger which is the same as a Sony PSP charger. If the 5500 is also the same as the PSP charger, then yes the 5500 and the C1000 have the same charger.

2. Yes.

As above, you can use the 5500 charger and yes you have 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM.

The C-1000 comes with a Japanese-only 100V charger that isn't supposed to be used outside of Japan, but has been reported as working in the USA by some people.  As I'm in England, I had to buy the PSP charger for it...  Or you could use a PSP sync/charge USB cable which is even more handy - I did that as well.

OK, to clear up any confusion:

As I understand it, if you buy an SL-C1000 from Japan, or from PriceJapan, you will get a tiny PSU which is the EA-72 (100V, 50/60Hz, 11VA input, 5.0V, 1.0A output).  This has plugs suitable for the Japanese market, apparently, and is rated at 100V.  I don't know if it's suitable for use in the USA, but the previous owner of my 1000 did use it in the USA with an adaptor.

If you buy an SL-C1000 from any reseller such as Conics, Dynamism, Figlabs, Pulster, ShirtPocket, Streamline, Trisoft or anyone else who knows what they're doing and understands their obligations, you will get a worldwide PSU suitable for use anywhere in the word when used with appropriate converter plugs.  Figlabs provide the Sony PSP charger and have taken the 1000/PSP charger through CE mark certification, most others to the best of my knowledge provides a Sharp EA-70 - Trisoft have taken the EA-70/SL-Cxx00 through CE mark certification.  

The EA-70s is a lump which needs a "figure of 8" lead from the plug socket to the PSU.  The rating is 100-240v input, 50/60Hz, with 5.0V DC 2.0A output.  

The EA-75 is the charger that comes with the 3100.  This is a charger with japanese-style plug moulded into it, so for use in other markets I think you need a plug adaptor.  Interestingly, it is only rated for 1.0A output rather than 2.0A.

Sorry to give such a long answer to a simple question, but I'm trying to get to the bottom of what is supplied in the box with every model.  I hope it helps somewhat.

The adaptor I got with the C3100 (purchased from PriceJapan) is an international one ( 100-240V) and it works great (without any plug adaptor) in Canada...

Oh cool, cheers for that.  Do you happen to know if the Canadian socket is the same as the Japanese one?  I guess the answer is yes...
