    My dog just chewed my charger in two. He is still alive, but my wife had to stop me from killing him. Anyway, does anyone know if I can get the same charger that came out of the box at the Verizon store?

    Thanks.

    Just pick up some micro USB cables and cheap USB power blocks from Monoprice.com. Cheap, and they work just fine. I spent $15 (including shipping) and got 5 USB cables of varying lengths, and three USB power blocks.

    Yes. ANY standard micro USB cable will. USB is USB, and since it is digital data, you don't even need a "nice" one, contrary to the things companies like Monster cable tell you. There is nothing smart about the "Ecomoto" USB cable included with the Droid, except for the fancy sticker.

    The only thing to watch out for is crappy connectors, but the cables from Monoprice were surprisingly high quality.

    This might sound silly but I've been using my old blackberry charger being the cable is super long but i just noticed its 700mA out Vs the Droid X charger is 850mA out. Is that okay? Should I got a longer cable to use with the stock droid one or buy a Stand alone droid x one or is my blackberry charger fine? Thanks :)

    It's fine. It just won't charge as fast.

    Personally I would just pick up a 10 foot micro to usb cable and use it with the supplied charger. I was using my crackberry wall charger but noticed the phone getting hot. So I decided to use the short **** cord for now. Gonna grab a longer usb cable next time Im at best buy.
