Default after market charger

It would appear I have left my charger at home. I was suppose to be on a 1 week trip that has turned into 2. Can anyone give me the specs on teh charger and a suggestion of where to pick up a replacment (brick and morter only)? Is it a common size?

Chargers nowadays are basically a standard, the mini hdmi output from the phone into a standard USB...you can really just search Amazon for one, they are usually pretty cheap.

This tablet will not charge on USB-b. Nor on mini HDMI. It requires a round plug.

Radio Shack has chargers with interchangable tips. This tablet uses the G tip. The charger needs to be 1.5 amps or larger with 12 volts DC ouput. Make sure the tip is in the right + amd - holes.
