I was just wondering & want a confirmation, are the USB cables that come with the 436/536 compatible?
If they are then I will be putting one of my cables away.

They are just plain old mini USB cables. If you lose both of them you've probably got 4 more in a drawer somewhere for some other device you've bought in the last 5 years.

But see my thread earlier. They aren't all exactly "just plain old mini USB cables." My 436 will not charge using the cable that came with the 536. That cable apparently doesn't provide enough current, and the 436 resets back to the "Charge?" immediately after it starts charging.

The 536 came with a cable that has no RF choke (the 436's cable has a choke) and that is slightly thinner than the 436 cable.

it just needs all the pins.. some cables are extra cheap and are missing some pins connected

just try a cable or two.. or pick one up for 10 cents from a garage sale.
