    Motorola P513 car charger provides enough current to charge the Droid X battery while Navigator is running. I bought one from Amazon for about $5.

    The Droid X car dock has a minUSB port in the back. If you got the car charger with your phone you can plug this into the back of the dock and it will charge your phone.

    The question was which car charger was best. The Verizon charger doesn't supply enough current to adequately charge the battery in high drain situations. The Motorola one does. I'm not sure what the actual rating is, but I believe it is 850 mAh.

    Eh, never mind. I didn't read closely enough.

    I have the Verizon charger Model# 580394A001. It keeps up with the phone in GPS mode and still manage to do some charging, though certainly not as fast as when the phone is idle.

    No listing of the mah, and a quick search online doesn't turn it up.

    Yeah there was no listing. Thanks Bally for the heads up I'm going to get that charger you suggested from Amazon. It's pretty cheap, too.
