    Will buying this work to charge my Droid X in the car?

    I've been looking for a LONG car charger for my droid x so this idea popped in my mind. My car doesn't have any usb port, it only has the cigarette port. I don't have my Droid X YET (still shipping) and a car charger. Most car chargers have those curled springy cable but i'm scared that it won't reach my car dock since my car dock is all the way up, or may cause annoyance if i stretch the cable too much.

    if i buy this:

    Lenmar USB DC Car Adapter Charger for MP3 : Portable Music Car Charger | RadioShack.com

    and buy a micro USB cable like this

    (http://www.sjtweb.net/Product_images...SB%20cable.jpg)

    and plug it in from the usb port above to the car dock, will it work like a normal charger?

    Thanks.

    Yeah it should work perfectly fine as long as the usb port is putting out enough power. I have plugged my usb cable into plenty of other ac usb ports and it worked fine so I don't see why that wouldn't work.

    So *ANY* micro usb to usb cable will work? I'm looking at these Blackberry Sync and Charge cables at the moment.

    Yes they will. I'm using one for the BB connected to the workstation in the office and charges perfectly fine.

    But then again, the Motorola P513 car charger is only $5.85 from Amazon.
