    Just curious to see if anyone out there has bought any of these accessories for their droid. Price isn't too bad but i'm just wondering if these items would last me longer than a few months. I do need a car charger as well as a car mount of some sort since traveling season is on its way :icon_ banana:. I'm also curious to see if that car mount would block the connector for the charger though.

    Any other suggestions?

    My experiences.....

    I bought a wall charger for my Droid....it wasn't the same as the picture and it was very low quality.

    The car charger I bought was the exact Motoroal OEM one, and it is very nice.

    I bought a gel case next, it was crap. Fit was poor and quality was subpar.

    Final purchase was the "rubber feel" hard plastic case. This ended up being quite nice for about two weeks. It scratched easily and the "rubber feel" paint is wore off in several areas. It started to look really bad so I took it off and threw it away.

    I also got this leather holster case. Your Droid will fit in this with a regular rubberized hard cover on the phone. It will be a bit sung getting it in and out at first but it does loosen up. Note: The larger hard covers will not fit in this (IE BodyGlove cover). The quality of the case is very good and the magnetic closer is strong enough to keep the thing closed it makes a nice snap sound when you let it flip closed.

    Worth is always subjective. With ebay, it really depends on the specific item and seller that you're talking about.

    I bought a car charger and a spare battery for my droid on ebay...spend like $12 total--haven't had any problems at all with either. Any word on external battery chargers? I wouldn't mind shelling out some money for one of those but I can't find one anywhere...

    If you're looking for a good deal, look ebay, usually if you dig hard enough, there are plenty of goodies at a good price.

    But if it's a gaurantee you're looking for, then you may wanna go to dedicated cellphone accessores specialists.

    I have not shopped with too many out there, I tried Seidio, it was not the best of accessories. but great customer service.

    also i have shopped at http://www.pdair.com no complaints at all for the past 3 yrs.
