    Battery Charging

    Hi all,
    I have just got a Gogear Vibe SA3VB04RN/02 Mp3 player.
    Can anyone tell me how long it should take to charge connected to my laptop please?
    Also am I able to use a mains charger without causing any damage?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi ummagumma!

    Welcome to the forum!

    Normally you should fully charge it within 2-4hrs.

    You can have a look at these chargers:

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    Many thanks for your reply, It took about 6 hours to fully charge. It had NO power at all not even enough to turn it on, but it was fine after I connected it to my laptop.
    All seems to be ok now and loaded lots of music.
    As for the charger I contacted Philips support on Twitter and they said:-
    "As long as you are using mains charger which is suitable for USB charging then it will be fine, just remember to unplug!"
    So I tried my wife's USB phone charger and it works fine.
    Once again thank's for the reply.

    Check the mah of the device. A usb output is limited to 500mah. If the device need more then the optimum charge will not be possible.
