Since it talks about plugging a USB cable into it it can't have the resistor 
as there's no pin on that end of the cable for it to connect to. You would 
need a charger with a captive lead and mini-b plug like the mains charger has 
for it to include the resistor.

On the DIY front mini-b plugs with all pins available are hard to find in 
small quantities, in the UK at least. Has anyone found a source?
