Charging Blackberry Using Universal Travel Adaptor

I have one of those AC universal travel adaptor with usb ports that connect directly to a power outlet. I've been trying to charge my Bold 9000 using a mini-usb cable connected to the usb port. But the problem is that my BB just doesn't charge. I'm wondering what the problem is and has anyone ever had success using these universal adaptors or is it impossible as the BB is using some proprietary usb wiring?

Re: Charging Blackberry Using Universal Travel Adaptor

I've used the adaptor from iPod "universal" kit to charge my BB.

 

What is the power output of your adaptor's USB ports? Maybe it is too little?

Re: Charging Blackberry Using Universal Travel Adaptor

That should be fine. That is what mine is. I just re-verified that it works for me.

 

Obvious question: does the adaptor work?

 

I can't think of anything else. Sorry.
