Hey guys, I recently got my first smartphone, a Bionic, and I am loving it. I want to get a car charger for it, but I don't know what is safe. I notice that the motorola cable is just a USB chord that plugs into an outlet. I read that "USB Cables: The XT875 can only be used with Motorola USB cables."
So I am wondering if there is a certain "spec" that is required for a universal charger to work on the Bionic. I know back years ago, Verizon was shady and sold headphones that worked stereo in their phones, for like 30 bucks, and if you used other headphones, they would only be mono. I found out that this was because of the amount of rings on the jack, and I was able to find the right amount of rings on one on Amazon, for about 5 bucks, and it worked.
Is there any feature like this that I should look for in a car charger, for it to work on the Bionic? And is it safe? Any chargers anyone can recommend? I know I can get the verizon one for like $25 bucks, but I hate spending that much on something, I know I can get off Amazon for like $5 bucks shipped.
Or is it just the Motorola cable itself, that is required? I mean, I can take the cable with me and plug it into any computer and it charges fine. So maybe its just that the "cable" itself, is the required part. My wife has a universal phone car charger that is just a cigarette lighter plug, with a USB jack, that she plugs her phone cable into to charge, and it works for her old env3. If I plug my moto cable into this, should it work, and should it be safe? Or do I have to worry about frying my phone? I would just try it but I don't want to damage anything.
Thanks in advance people.
