Introduction: 100% Working USB Charging Adaptor for Creative ZEN V Plus MP3 Players
Here i will describe what you really need to charge your ZEN V plus with every 5VDC power supply!
1. You need the following parts:
- a Mini-USB connector with 5 soldering pins inside from a standard USB-A to Mini-USB cable (see picture 2)
- for the complete adapter a Mini-USB plug (see picture 3)
- a 470 Ohm resistor (SMD (code 471) or metall film because they are smaller as standard resistors)
- soldering implements
For myself i've made an adaptor (see picture 1, 4 and 5) to use my motorola RAZR power supply (see picture 1).
On the pictures 6 and 7 you can see that the (my) adaptor works!
To use this adaptor on every PC/Notebook you need additionally such an standard USB-A to Mini-USB cable (see picture 2).
Step 1: This Is Picture 2:
An standard USB-A to Mini-USB cable:
Step 2: This Is Picture 3:
Step 3: Second Version That Works: (i've Not Tested It, It Comes From an Universal Adaptor for the ZEN V Series)
The second version uses 2 resistors, 1 kOhm and 2kOhm!
In this wiring diagram you can see, how the both resistors are connected:
Step 4: These Are the Pictures 4 and 5:
Picture 4 is from inside the Mini-USB plug
Picture 5 is the complete adaptor with heat shrink sleeve on each connector
Step 5: These Are the Pictures 6 and 7:
In picture 6 you can see the motorola RAZR powersupply, the adapter and my ZEN V plus in charging mode.
In picture 7 you can see my ZEN V plus too in working and charging mode.
