    I went the cheap way and bought one off amazon for like 4 bucks. I travel a lot so I use navigation and a combo of bluetooth and streaming my NY radio stations. When I run any one of the two, I wotn even mention when I am running all three, the power drops while it is plugged into the charger. Now it seems to be making a noise when it is plugged in. Lesson learned.

    What car chargers are you guys using?

    Another vote for the Motorola car charger. It easily charges with navigation and music app running.

    As Dez said, "Yup". I've got one of those in both our cars. We use them on the original Droid, the Wife's Droid Bionic and my Gnex.

    I have the Moto charger and it's great, i have been using the the duel charger i got with the Costco bonus pack and its really good as well. I travel a lot as well and that charger is both car and wall charger and keeps up the charge just like the moto charger if not better, plus i carry just that one with me and i can charge in the hotel and rental car with no problem..

    I bought two of the Moto car chargers that light up blue - they work great.... I think they were like $4 or something.
