    Ladies and gentlemen, after further investigation, I stand corrected, the Thrive 7" and the Excite 10" does and will charge from your computers USB port.
    If you're looking for a car charger for a Thrive 10", this is the one to get:

    Amazon.com: PWR+ Car Charger Pa3922u-1ara for Toshiba Thrive Android Os 10-inch Tablet At105-t1016 At105-t1032 At105-t108 At105-t1016g At105-t1032g ; Multi Dock Pa3934u-1prp ; Rapid Dc Adapter: Computers & Accessories

    Got this just the other day and it works.

    Hmmm, I use something like this in the car for Thrive 7
    Amazon.com: Griffin Dual USB Car Charger PowerJolt: MP3 Players & Accessories
    The one I have is 500mA per port IIRC. Apparently that's USB standard. It is Griffin, I'm just not sure which. I think it charges

    OMG, I just noticed Grumpy posted well before me - I was responding to page 1 before reading page 2 Apologies!

    That said, I pulled my car charger for Thrive 7 out this afternoon to confirm I didn't lie in the previous post. Here's what it is:
    Griffin P2275. Very difficult to remove from the car. I had to tie a rope aroung it to pull it out to see if there's part# on it. Charges at the rate of 14% in 30 minutes, just confirmed today

    This is the same model#, but the specs don't say what the box used to say
    Z-Tech Ltd., Griffin P2275, Griffin P2275, P2275, P2275 Super-small car charger with 2 USB $ Takapuna, Glenfield, Wairau Park, North shore, Auckland New Zealand
    which was 500ma/port. This link says 1A per port.

    When I got it long ago I saved this info
    Griffin Technology

    Regardless, I think Thrive7 charger sends 1amp to the box, so 500ma or 1amp certainly should not fry it.

    Lucky for me my Toyota Matrix actually has it's own Two Prong outlet right next to the cigarette lighter outlet so I can plug my Thrive in using the spare AC cord I got with the cheap bundle last month. My brother however still wants a car charger because the cord I got for him from the Toshiba site was actually just another AC cord. LOL! Teach me to look closer at the pictures when shopping online!
