Sounds okay but may not be good in a vehicle.
Actually, my old Velocity Micro Cruz T301 tablet will not even realize that the DC charger is even plugged in to it and the wall outlet and has been that way ever since I first got it. It WILL however charge quite nicely through its USB port via a USB wall/car charger or whenever tethered via USB to a computer. Of which I have been using for a few years with it before I found a nicer charger for it. So, SOME tablet can indeed be charged via USB, in fact I still use my Cruz as a storage device and its currently charging just fine, and has been for over five months, with an obsolete BlackBerry cell phone USB wall charger.
I mean AC not DC I always mix them up! Lol!
The Length of my laptop charging cable is not too long to reach to the plug.So toavoid this problem i am using usb charger.
You can buy an inexpensive inverter, plug it into your car power
outlet to charge or run almost any A/C device. I have had one for years and they work great!
Sorry the A500 will not and cannot be charged via USB. The new A510 can. As will the A700.
I use a 300W inverter in the car. Even enough power for a laptop, battery charger for electric screw driver, mobile/cellphone charger, bluetooth headset, GPS charger and etc. All connected through a power board plugged into the inverter.
I agree look around Because they can get lower than $75 I got mine on sale at radio shack for $20.00.
