    Thanks for the tip Squidge :)
    Is this the correct link?

    Fraid I haven't tried the cradle. I've learned the hard way that my univeral adaptor doesn't really say which way it is polarised, so I dont want to fry the cradle, and I wouldn't know which way it is even if it worked :(

    I was about to ask you guys what kind of adapter to use for the cradle center positive, or center negative. I got a 5V 2A adapter for a USB hub but the head connector is too small so i'm going to get a bigger connector and splice that on to it but not sure the polarity of the thing but that can be easily changed when adding the new head I guess?

    Well no one writes here about an adapter's polarity of jack for many days, so I state:

    Jack of the adaptor to power the cradle must be CENTER POSITIVE.

    I did try this with the cradle with '2X sticked in & powered, so cradle's power LED which had have glowed have dimmed out when I have stuck center negative jack in :blink: ; just to be sure I repeated this twice more (this time without '2X stuck) :lol: and LED stayed dark. Then I changed poles and everything's OK, LED have lighted up. My cradle survived this triple murder trial :rolleyes:

    I have a problem with the audio output of the cradle. Whenever I have a USB device plugged into any of its ports, a staticy sound can be heard. How do I fix it?
