The XO has a plug configuration very uncommon/nonstandard in the USA:
1.67mm Center pin diameter
5.5mm Outer barrel diameter
11mm contact length
The closest I have found is 5.5x1.75mm connector. The .08 mm center pin difference can be felt, but in general I have not had a problem using my car adapter with this size plug.
Lots of information here:
