    I am new to this site. Phone won't charge with any kind of charger in the car. Have folks at Verizon and Radio Shack stumped. They suggested a converter that allows me to put the "inset" into the cigarette lighter and then connect with usb cable. It works but why all of a sudden did the phone not like the car charger. I looked in the site but did not find a similar problem. Any ideas?

    no, 2 stores had same result. Ended up having to buy a dual (ac/dc) charger that plugs into the lighter and using my usb cord to the phone. Still not happy, the dual charger makes my phone hot!

    Lol. I've had the same issue with charging from the car. I left mine on the car charger while out riding motorcycles and 4 hours later my car would not start and the phone was only 30% charged with a very hot batt!!!

    I just don't charge in the car anymore. The chargers at home work just fine and charge dead phone to 100% in roughly 2hrs and the batt is still room temp.

    I resorted to finding ways to extend the phone's batt life. I'm running Tweaked 3.0 rom and V6 Supercharged script to get things straightened out. My Charge is lasting 18 hrs consistantly day after day with moderate use.

    Btw.. I have the verizon ext. batt.
