    If you notice on your 8100, we have an alternate charger jack (called
    a "Standard Charger" jack in the manual). The manual states we can
    find this charger from your local SprintPCS store. Well, I went to the
    Sprint store and could not find any charger to accomodate the small
    plug - only the regular 1" wide accessory chargers. I asked a rep and
    said I may have better luck finding one online. Guess what, nothing
    online either.

    The reason I'm so desperately seeking this charger is because I often
    have my cell phone plugged into my laptop which, of course, uses the
    accessory charger port and therefore my Internet usage is restricted
    to the battery life of the phone.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction? TIA

    This is exactly what you need.

    I bought one for my 4900 from this guy and it works great! Uses same driver
    as non-charging cable. So it's ready to use. Donna B

    I have not seen such a charger anywhere, but I have a suggestion and
    an observation which may be helpful.

    Suggestion: several sources on ebay sell a charging USB data cable,
    which allegedly works as a charger and a data cable at the same time.
    They're not expensive, and I'm considering getting one myself.

    Observation: Samsung A620 and A460 models and Sanyo 8100's sold at
    CostCo come with free accessories, including the very same, identical
    car chargers. The car charger fits the standard jack in the Sanyo
    phone. The Samsung standard charger fits also fits this jack on my
    Sanyo phone, but I'm chicken to plug it into the wall to see if it
    works. Might be a lead worth pursuing, I don't know.

    Well all 3 Sprint PCS stores in San Francisco have lots of those
    chargers on display in the store, both the home model (120vac) and the
    car model (12vdc). I bought a home model. The card in the package calls
    it "Travel Charger" "for use with PCS phone using a Standardized
    Charging Connector". The back of the card has a part number SPSUCH002.
    It has fold-up AC prongs, just like the Sanyo charger.

    Besides the Sprint PCS store, you can order these from the SPCS
    Accessory Hotline 800-974-2221

    And you can order the Samsung charger from www.samsung.usa for $19.99.
    It's part number TAD077JBEB/STD or just TAD077JBE. I have the ones from
    my Samsung A460 and A620, and they work fine on the Sanyo 8100.
