1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    How long does it take to fully charge the Droid via the car charger?
    This will be my main charger for quite a few months.

    It depends on the amperage of the car charger. I have a 1 amp charger which I believe is the highest amperage available. It's actually faster than the included wall charger. If you have a low one like 550 ma or less it could take quite some time.

    Im sure you'll be fine though.

    Sweet! I understand the wall chargers take about an hour to charge, is that correct? I'll look for a 1 amp charger. Thanks!

    You know, I have never really tested that out. Always have a pretty good charge left when I get in the car and then charge the whole time I'm driving. So I guess I'm no help, but someone will come along and have a more comprehensivence answer then I do. They say that an AC charger takes about 90 minutes to fully charge a DROID and I'd guess that a car charger takes more time, but not sure. Anyway, good luck. Have you tried a Google search? That may give you your answer. Good luck!

    I noticed that my car charger takes a little longer than my wall charger...it's probably not a "good" one though lol

    If the battery is 1400 mAh, at 1.4 Amps it would charge in 1 hour
