The seller finally contacted me back and he wanted me to send in my S50 to check it for the correct sized tip! Are you kidding me??? Why the hell did he post the listing if he didn't know? And me live without Sirius for a week?? No way!

I sent the a/c adapter back to him along with a tip that I know is the correct size for it. That was over a week and half ago and I have heard nothing from him. I just checked the auction and it now says "The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale." I am hoping that is only because he wants to get the right tip size before he sells anymore.

Anyone else getting scammed at this point? I sent him an email for an update and have not heard back yet.

If he doesn't help us, we need to unite and get him.

He wanted me to send him my S50 also. Yeah right. I sent back my adapter and I'm still waiting for a refund. I ended up buying a Radio Shack adapter with the "G" adaptaplug. I sent the guy the dimensions for the plug so he should be able to get it right now.

I sent him a plug from a universal a/c adapter that fit perfectly. He said he has the correct plugs coming from "overseas" (that was two weeks ago).

Getting a little PO'ed now, as I haven't heard anything for awhile.

Getting anything from overseas takes a while. Did you give this guy an eBay rating yet for the transaction? Maybe a warning of the fact you might give him negative rating might make him react quicker.

Well, he wrote me back and said "Yes, we already have the right tip for the S50. we will send replace one to you today." So I'll continue to give him the benefit of the doubt since I'm not in a huge hurry for it, just annoyed.

The problem with negative feedback is the person can easily respond with their own negative feedback. And then even though I am 100% correct, a lot of people just browsing you or your sale on ebay see negative feedback and don't take the time to investigate to see if it was actually not warranted. So it's possible to lose a sale. That is the part about eBay that can stink.

I'll be sure to post here when it is all resolved (fingers crossed).

Basically. I always want people on here to check with us on prices. Some people will pay way too much in the longrun when dealing with taking chances on purchasing these kinds of things. If price is an issue let us know, it's possible we can budge on our prices. Sometimes we can, sometimes we can't. It really depends on the margins.

Ah, if only I had known that around XMas time. I would have definitely ordered the S50 A/C adapter from them and saved a HUGE headache.

I got the "correct" A/C Adapter from the eBay seller today. In his defense, he sent it out right away just like he said he would.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work very well. I am not sure what is wrong, but either the tip isn't long enough or the 5v 2A Adapter is not liked by the car mount. It seems VERY touchy. If I barely move the unit, it will power off and then back on again (which is very risky with these units...since they are so flaky).

I am about to just give up on this idea and use the internet to listen to Sirius at home and just leave the dock in the car.

Ah well...I tried...

Well once again I am very satisfied with TSS. Not only did they lower the price for me on the remote but I recieved the products (in excellent condition of course) in 3 days. Both times I have placed orders I have spend just over $25 and got free shipping. Both times I got my products quickly.

Also, the adapter that they sent me fits into my car dock very nicely. I dont know what the difference is between this one and the one you recieved via ebay but this one appears to work very well.
