    Faulty Chargers Floating Ebay

    Want to warn you all about these.

    Problem: as soon as you plug in DX looks like it is being hacked, with a procession of screens and no input from touchscreen.

    Reason: charger outputs faulty voltage

    ID: oblong fixed non-retractable prongs, "CH-MOT" and " V 8/ V 9 " displayed next to cable outlet. Even more troublesome bottom shows "5-11V" and no wattage!

    I did order from same seller earlier and the first batch were square with a white glow streak and 5V 650mA clearly shown works like a charm.

    Hope to save people grief.

    Android Rules!

    I never buy chargers unless they are official ones.

    But thanks for the tip.

    Ok, found solution, $4 shipped OEM Motorola and it works too:

    OEM Motorola Compact Travel / Home Charger SPN5356A - eBay (item 250643456772 end time Aug-30-10 19:51:21 PDT)

    Moto part number is SPN5356.

    If you guys loved the discrete blue light and sleek design of Alltel car chargers:

    OEM Car Charger for Verizon Motorola DROID X Xtreme - eBay (item 310234094742 end time Aug-14-10 06:31:24 PDT)

    I just can't swallow the cheap look of the Moto car charger.

    does that alltel carcharger output enough amperage to charge the dx with navigation running and music and what not? I have a car charger for an old bt speakerphone that only outputs 500mA I believe it is that might slow the drain on the DX but won't actually kick the phone into charging with the lightning bolt have to plug in the ac/dc inverter and the wall charger to get that to work in the car currently unfortunately and talk about waste dc to ac back to dc...
