          I purchased two chargers to be used with Sony Walkman MP3 E series and S series players. We have used them several times and they have worked wonderfully. The players charge within the stated time without becoming overheated (a problem we had with a different charger). We even received our shipment earlier than stated. They were definitely worth purchasing.

          I purchased this to recharge my Sony HD Bloggie at night while I was on vacation. This charger is tiny--perfect for packing--and does the job. You just plug the camera's USB in and it charges automatically. It also works with iPhones; there's a switch with two settings, "iPhone" and "Sony."

                This AC Charger is essential for us when on vacation to recharge my wife's Walkman in hotel rooms and locations where there's no computer to plug in the USB cable. Compact, folding outlet prongs.

                      Comments about Sony AC-U501AD USB Charging Adapter:

                      I bought this one especially for my "last-year-released-but-discontinued-right-away" Sony MP3 NWZ-X1061 (a very expensive one $370, much higher price than the iPod iTouch 32gig).
                      When I connect to my Sony it does not show as it charges, just turn it on. There is no indication there is a charge or not, but when I connect my Sony MP3 back to my PC it does show that it is charging, so I don't know if this charger is made for this Sony MP3 or not.

                        I attach this to my mp3 player with external speakers (it's attached all day). I CRANK tunes ALL day long. Best part is: when I unplug my player after jamming all day, it has a FULL charge for the ride home and then some. Best "little" charger/adapter I've ever purchased. I wish it came in a 2-pack (1 for home, 1 for shop). Love that the "prongs" fold down-in for easy carrying.
