    I wanted to share a link with everyone that I found for a whole charger package for the Droid. It has home/car/extra usb cable and they're only 7.99!

    Pretty sure that's as cheap as I've seen and just wanted to share with everyone.

    - $7.99 Motorola Droid USB Data Cable w/CD + Rapid Car Charger + Home Travel Charger USB Data Cable w/CD + Rapid Car Charger + Home Travel Charger Motorola Droid Data Cable + Car +AC [MOTDATCOM027 ] : BargainCell.com - Bargain Cellular Phone Accessor

    Nice find! Maybe this should turn into a 'cheapest accessories available on the interweb' thread and let everyone share the best deals out there. Just a thought...

    I bought that package when it was sold on Overstock for a similar price. The home charger works fine. The USB cable is screwy. Tried several drivers and it still only works half the time or randomly disconnects. Havent tried the car charger yet.

    I figure it was worth it just for the home charger. It frees up my original USB cable so I can keep it with my laptop for tethering :D

    chargers

    There are other posts around this forum about aftermarket chargers causing the droids to act weirdly. Has anyone seen any of this with these chargers?

    I have been ordering there also. Good vendor. You can sometimes find odd lengths if needed.

    A co-worker just ordered the MonoPrice.com stuff (USB car charger and cable), he ordered like 10 of each and handed out to a few people.

    I tested it out and it works just fine. It also works on my wife's env3. $2 for that I think, great solution! I wouldn't expect it to hold up for years but at $2 who cares. Ours stays plugged in in the car so that should help it's life.

    MonoPrice is the way to go IMO! Gotten HDMI cables and some audio cables, coworkers have gotten other such things, no complaints.

    I was thinking of ordering cables with chargers to include with MIKRADLES, but became concerned upon reading reviews that state they do charge fine, but often cause the screen to go haywire if you try to use the Droid while charging (using the monoprice ac charger). Has anyone here had issues such as this? cuskit
