looking though the manual for my Mp3 player i found that it uses 5V - 500Mah to charge.

Well i have an old charger from an I-Flop that charges at 5.2V and 400-500Mah. would it be ok to plug my Mp3 player in to it?

that voltage is within range for your device...however keep in mind that some specialty chargers have circuitry inside them so that you can't use other chargers with them....i'm got an SMT 5800 (awesome phone) and it uses a 5v miniUSB charger...however my charger won't work on my wife's motorolla phone that uses a 5v miniUSB charger because of the circuitry in the charger (the phone actually says "unapproved charger")

Ok thanks..

I just tried it and it works...But it charges REALLY fast(only about 1 sec for all three bars to flash, wher it was about 1sec PER bar)
