    Acer Iconia A500

    Acer Iconia A500 Charger

    Hey all

    This is my first post on here so first off I would like to say hi :-)

    I would normally stick to xda as I have 3 android devices but since they don't have a Acer sub section I though I would ask here

    I got my Acer on the 18th and have had no issues with it. Everything is running smooth unlike many xoom owners

    The one thing that is starting to annoy me is the charger. When its plugged into my Iconia its really quite like a normal phone charger. But when its finished or not charging it makes a high pitch buzzing noise. Does anyone else get this or is it broke?

    Thanks

    Haven't noticed any weird noises coming from my AC adaptor - just wish Acer had shipped it with a longer cable!

    Acer Iconia A500, Viewsonic G-Tab
    Very slight high pitched buzz coming from mine if I put my ear against it, but my Viewsonic G-Tab charger does the same and is a little louder.
    Also wish it had a longer cable, the Viewsonic one is a good 6', I had to add a short extension cord on this one witch is a PIA.

    I get this high pitched noise from the docking station when I remove the tablet while power is on.
    and yes I wish the charger's chord was at least double the length.

    Yes it does buzz. Its a switched mode power supply which is very efficient. You will notice that when left disconnected from the tablet but still plugged in it will stay very cool and use almost no power. The down side of this design is that the high speed switching which is occurring generates harmonic frequencies which you can hear.

    Acer A500
    Does anyone know where I can get a replacement charger(hopefully with a longer lead) for the a500 other than Acer themselves
    Just want to find one cheaper, 30 something is a bit pricey and no help from amazon this time ( normally I can find anything there)
    Any ideas guys
