Just sayin', my wall charger works just fine. I've left it plugged in for days with no smells, no overheating, no sparks when I plug it in, etc. I think maybe something has been corrected in their production...? Or maybe mine's just a fluke. XD
I've left mine plugged in for more than 2 weeks now... no smells or problems.

ur the lucky one!

mine charges the dingoo ultra fast , from empty to full in less than 2 hours (maybe one hour and a half)
but then when i smell the charger it smelt like burnt plastic - really scary! and the charger was very very warm, not just warm, really warm!

for me that was a warning not to use it ever again... so i use my ipod charger instead, it chargers my dingoo more slowly (4 hours+ for a full charge, giving me about 8 hours of playtime) but its very safe and the battery indicator actually works! (when its full it will stop charging)  even though my ipod charger is rated at 1000mA but it seems more weak than the supplied charger

how long does it take for you guys to charge the dingoo from the wall charger? from almost empty to full?

I have had sucsess with a Mottorolla Charger, its shows the Charge process like the official charger and i have not charged fully.

When Dingoo has 1 bar i charge till 3 are on it and it takes about 2 hours to get to that level.

The easiest way of charging the Dingoo (and any mini-USB powered device) is to let your computer's power supply ON and connect via USB the handheld. I usualy let my Dingoo about 8 hours (all night) and in the morning disconnect it and let it cool a bit before using it.

The wall charger here heats up the dingoo a bit, but never too a "melting point"  :P

What are you guys talking about?

I've used the original charger that came with the Dingoo like forever. It's been left plugged in for more than a year, the charger to a surge protector I that is. No problems at all.
It never overheats when charging anything and I use it to charge many more devices than just the Dingoo, I use it to charge whatever device will charge via USB.

I bought my Dingoo in May 2009.

Well you just got a good one then. The point here is that these are cheap and the quality will vary from unit to unit. There's no denying that some chargers have destroyed their Dingoos. Better to be safe than sorry, and use a USB charger from a more consistent and reputable manufacturer.

I bought mine in May 2009. At that time I've never heard of any issues with the included charger. So I'm guessing this only applies to chargers made some time after.

As Jesse says these Dingoos are not built to the same standards that PSPs and DS's are. And so some consoles have some isues that others dont, and its all to do with build quality.

And so i guess the same hit/miss can occur with the chargers.

I only used mine 2 times and noticed it get a bit warm but not hot and my Dingoo a bit warm too.

I used my PC and PS3 to charge the Dingoo but they do take longer.

But as i said before a Motorolla Mobile/Cell Phone Charger worked fine for me, so Phones that have the same USB (B) Connection as Dingoo, you should be able to use their chargers.

Or even PS3 Pad Docking Stations.

The best way may be to get a decent quality USB charger, i got one from a popular electrical retailer and use that to charge my Dingoo and other USB devices from now on.

Lol. I bought mine used, so it didn't include the original charger. Guess I got lucky, then.  ;D
