    I read the product description and it sounds as if it can power the TF as it only puts out 5v but I dont think it will charge the TF

    It will most definitely work if you use the wall charger with that. USB port may or may not work

    Agree 100% with Frederuco. Use the supplied 110v power supply/USB that came with the TF and absolutely YES. If you try with just the USB lead - all bets are off.

    How about this?

    Amazon.com: Powerjolt Dual Universal USB Micro: Electronics

    I can't seem to get an Asus replacement charger since mine never worked and I'm tired of the incredibly long charges with my 5v charger so could I use this car charger? I also have an adapter that lets me plug a car charger into a standard wall outlet.

    My vote would be "No" as it only appears to put out 5volts from the USB ports.

    As it says :
    Input voltage range - 12-16V DC at 2A, 5 watts per port (5 volts @ 1 amp)
    The other one (above) will only work for charging with the AC outlet - not the USB.

    Oops, I misread the description and thought it output 12-16v. Sigh, back to the drawing board.

    But, this opens up a bigger question. If I could find something that output 12v and hada USB port, would that work as an alternative? Until the official ones actually ship I need to find a plan B that charges faster than 12 hours for almost a full charge.

    I used 75W 12V to 220V converter for 16 hours driving - it works OK with the wall charger.

    I think your best bet for figuring out another solution would be to read through this thread over at XDA. They have done some extensive research in getting alternatives to hold you over.

    DIY TF101 charger and other charging methods - xda-developers

    To save some time, easiest solution is this from Best Buy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dynex%26...&skuId=9462949

    Alternatively you can take a USB with a female end and cut it off and wire it up to a 12 VDC cigarette lighter adapter. That was done here: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...discussed.html

    It all depends on what level of DIY expertise you have, and how much risk you want to take.
