    Has anyone found any alternative chargers for the Galaxy Tab 10.5? From what I've seen, it needs an AC adapter or car adapter that delivers 2 amps. This is a lot more than most of the little end pieces that you plug the USB cable into can deliver. None of my existing ones go above about 1 amp. When I travel, I like to carry components that can be used many ways, and that are also very compact, size-wise.

    The AC adapter that comes with the Galaxy Tab 10.5 is a bit bulky for my travel needs, so I'd like to find a more compact one, if possible. It looks like Griffin makes one that delivers 2 amps and might be a bit more compact. Amazon.com: Griffin Technology PowerDuo 2 amp Power Charger for iPad, iPhone and iPod (Black): Electronics

    It comes with an iPad cable - but we can give that away :).

    Has anyone else found any compact chargers that deliver 2 amps?

    I think it will be difficult to find anything smaller than the Samsung one and deliver 2 Ampers.

    I just got one of these, which seems similar to blkwrxwag's, but I liked that I can use it for my phone as well (of course, it's much more expensive, too).

    Otherwise no, none of my wall/usb adapters or car/usb adapters seems to deliver enough juice to charge :(

    This is not a charger, it is a charging cable. It is NOT going to let you charge your tab from your laptop.

    Yes, it does. That's it's purpose, in fact. It's a cable, but it has the switch that allows it to be changed from sync to charge mode, like the wall charger part would do. Agreen C - Eco-Friendly Technology

    I wasn't 100% sure if it'd work for the 10.1 tab (they don't mention which one) but I found posts in other forums where people said it worked for their 10.1.

    ETA: And if you look at blkwrxwag's post, they got one that is similar, just a cable, and confirmed that it works to charge from a PC.
