I had an aftermarket charger at work (for the droid1), however, and it charges the bionic just as well as the charger it came with.

    Do both the OG and new Bionic chargers have the same amperage values on them?

    The OGD USB AC adapter is the same. Interestingly enough the Micro USB cable I use made a difference. The hardwired wall adapter is rated 0.1v less, same amperage. I had a problem with it registering charge but unplugging and plugging back in worked for me.

    The charger/USB question answer seams to be "mileage may vary". There is another thread where people complain that their Bionic will not charge/transfer data except with the USB supplied in the box.

    My Bionic will charge/transfer data on the supplied charger/USB, my OGD chargerUSB, and my ancient LG EnV charger. It will charge in the car on my OGD charger and one I bought from Radio Shak
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    I had the car charger for my OG that Verizon gave to me when I got it. When I upgraded to the Bionic I used it and it worked for about 3 days. After that it wouldn't charge the Bionic at all, but it would still charge my OG. I had to end up going to verizon and just getting a new charger and since then it has been charging in the car with no issues.

    So if you have one of the older chargers it may work for a while.
