Victor Reader Trek USB Wall Charger Physical Description

Additionally, this lightweight USB wall charger adapter features no pilot lamp.  So, unfortunately, you can’t tell at a glance if it’s operating or not.  It may whistle and chatter a little while charging, although these sounds are barely perceptible.  But you can hear it in quiet settings.  No big deal though, because when connected to the Trek, and with the Trek powered down, its green lamp blinks to indicate charging is in progress.
