    Which car charger to buy?

    I have read on this forum that people have problems with their phones if they don't get the right charger so I went to the Verizon store to get an official Droid X car charger. They didn't have such a thing. They wanted to sell me a universal usb car charger. I went to the Motorola site and find that Motorola does market a Motorola branded usb car charger.

    Has anyone here used either of these? Any problems?

    Thanks.

    I know what you mean. Same for the Droid 1. But have had no problems with the universal one they sold me. Just no luck on the 110 AC wall chargers other than stock. Brian

    That's weird that the verizon store didn't give you the right charger. In the verizon wireless website, if you select the accessories for the droid x, this specific charger comes up for about 30-40 bucks on their site. If you buy it from this site, it's cheaper since it's OEM. Verizon Wireless Micro-USB Vehicle Charger For Motorola, Motorola Droid X MB810 - Fommy.com

    I'm still waiting for mine to get here.

    I bought the VZW one that has the micro usb connector for the X, and it has a usb slot for other items to charge with a usb cable. Works slick.

    It depends what you want the car charger to do. If you want to run GPS/Nav, BT, and stream Pandora, or the like while driving, read this thread.

    Question: I've got a power inverter in my car. If I were to take the charger that came with the phone and plug it into the inverter, would that work ok? Battery/amp/everything-electrical n00b here

    I got the same one, only problem is, I have to jam it into my car for it to fit and I have to put it in upside down b/c it wont fit rightside up, then its a pain in the butt to pull it out.

    Oh well, does work, however.

    I own (before I got the DX) the Scosche USB12V2 mentioned in the link and used it this weekend with my DX on a 2 hour road trip. I used Navigation and had my bluetooth headset connect. I started out with a fully charged battery and at the end of my trip I was down to 60%!

    As I mention in the referenced thread, I agree with another poster that heat as something to do with it.

    Does anyone know what the Rocketfish car chargers are rated at? Didn't see the info on their site.
