    Car charger

    Anyone seen any car chargers for GNex yet? Are there chargers for older Samsung phones that will work?

    Thanks!

    I have several 1 amp chargers that came with my jawbones that don't work with the Nexus or Droid X.

    You need something with more than 1 amp. How much more, I don't know.

    Maybe its something with the jawbone chargers? Any charger I've owned(brand name and bootleg) have charged every phone I've owned. It is 1amp you want tho, 2.1amp is too hot for a phone battery(or so I've read on xda).Some USB style chargers will only charge in USB mode which is 500ma. Shorting out pins 2 and 3 fix this and send it into AC mode (1a).

    The car charger for my D1 works fine. Not sure what the amperage difference is, if its lower it will just charge slower. But never the less it does work.

    I have used my iGo car charger without issue. The nice thing about the iGo is the interchangeable tips, so one charger basically fits all if you bought the corresponding tip.

    I finally bit the bullet and bought the Verizon brand universal charger with extra USB port. Was concerned because nowhere on the package or device does it say anything about how many amps it tolerates. It was able to charge up my phone while running navigation, using Glympse, left the screen on, and did data speed tests. I also plugged in my iPad 2 into the extra port and that charged up as well. I'm pretty much sold on it. Not gonna bother trying to find a cheaper one.

    Also, I tried out their dual USB car charger too... only charges in USB mode. Not enough juice. Its going back. That's fine. Looks like micro USB is going to be a standard for awhile so hopefully this charger is good for a number of years to come.
