    My Samsung cell phone charger no longer works. It died after being used to charge my VTAB1008. The standard Visio charger is a 2 amp charger. My VTAB1008 apparently overloaded and damaged my 1/2-amp cell phone charger.

    Does the charger have an internal fuse?

    Sounds like a good idea. The EBAY ad says it is made for the Vizio Vtab, but you never know. Do you have a link to a 2 amp model?

    Most adapters rated for the iPad put out 2 amps. I like Scoshe products. Watch out for dual USB adapters that put out 2 amps "total" these usually put out 1 amp per port.
