    I remember hearing issues about getting a charger of a certain output, as regular ones for older phones weren't powerful enough. Anyone know what I need to get to charge phone while driving? And even better... Could I pick up up local (walmart, best buy, radio shack)? Thanks

    I got one from vzw. It works well, and you can charge 2 phones at once.

    At radio shack you can get a doohickey that gives you 2 usb ports in your power socket. Just use a data cable, even a cheap one is OK for just charging.

    The check out isle at Walmart has a car charger for $5. I use it for my Incredible. Worked great for a few months. Now the connection isn't as tight as it used to be, so it doesn't always charge.

    I bought a double plug only and use the cord that came with the phone because of the fit

    Your best bet is to get one with a 1Amp output. There are a lot that are .5Amp and they will charge slowly if you're not using your Rezound for anything while driving. If you're using GPS you may barely stay even. There is one from Motorola on Amazon that has been very popular and inexpensive. It's 950mA, but close enough to 1Amp to not make any difference. It's not a dual USB charger, but for under $6.00, it's a good deal.

    Verizon's charger works great, but it's a lot more expensive.

    Whatever you do make sure it has enough juice to charge your phone. Cheaper chargers don't have throughput. It has to be at least 1a 5v.
