If this was wall charger included with Neo then you can drop it (charger) 
to trash - it is useless as Neo cannot get more then 100mA from it which 
is not enough for charging.

Get Nokia BL-5C battery from Nokia 1600/2100/3200 and power Neo with it. 
Then flash newest u-boot, insert Neo battery and connect to USB port in 
desktop or powered hub.

You can also use 3rdparty charger for Nokia BL-5C batteries to charge Neo 
battery. It has to be 3rdparty dumb-as-possible because it is not 
compatible with Nokia ones so each Nokia will refuse to charge it. contain 
some more info.
