OK, so it has been about a week since I ordered my Motorola Vehicle Power Adapter micro-USB Rapid Rate Charger from Amazon.
As stated in previous posts I was concerned about the charging power of this unit and thought I would provide some feedback.
1.) All in all I am happy with it.
2.) I do wish it had a little more power but it does the job. While the phone is on and running google maps / nav. it still pulled enough power to sit in the car dock and charge.
This was my major concern as I wanted it to charge and not just maintain the battery level.
On Thanksgiving I got in the car with my phone at 10% battery left. After driving through town, for about 30 minutes, while using google maps / nav the phone increased to 50% battery life. So an increase of 40% battery... not bad.
After visiting the family and driving back I turned the phone off and placed in the dock and of course it charged much faster with a 10% to 100% in about 30 minutes or less... not sure when it hit the 100% mark as the phone was turned off - lol.
The cord is fine... tight coils but I stretch them out as I don't really care for the coils because of the placement of my outlet and location of the car dock. The blue light on the adapter is something I didn't care about at all but when I first plugged it in my wife did give the "that's cool" look at it... which by the way is a HUGE reaction from her when it comes to electronics.
I would highly recommend this charger as it did what I wanted and seems to be a high quality... and for $5.00 from Amazon you can't beat that with a stick
