So what can you guys recommend as a PC connection? I donīt need necessarily a direct USB connection, means a "standard" serial connection and an additional USB to serial converter would do it as well...Anyway...I am not 100% sure what I will need...Maybe somebody could give a hint or two :-)
So which one is the "right" one?
Any recommendations or experiences?
I do have the second device listed on your list of three. I have installed the drivers on Windows XP Pro SP2 and have the device working according to Windows and Hyperteminal. I have yet to upgrade the chargers firmware though as I have not had time. The device contains a FTDI chip which is supported in multiple operating systems and has been verified by Junsi's people for upgrading the firmware.
