It might show AC charging but make sure its delivering sufficient current to keep the Desire charged. I ditched my Maplin's charger and went for the official HTC one because which it was showing AC Charge the Desire was still losing charge with GPS and Bluetooth on.
It's definitely good enough to put charge in. Not really used BlueTooth much yet but as I said I have used it while running CoPilot and Spotify (Streaming & Offline) at the same time which previously killed my battery but now it increases charge at a fair old rate. 10-15% increase in my 15-20 min car journey to work. And seeing as it now permanently sits in my 12V socket as its so small I'm very happy, much better than one of the ones that stick out loads. I mentioned before the 12V socket on a 307 is not in the best place to not get in the way when changing gears and using the handbrake.
Now just need to pretty up the cable run ready for when I get me xcarlink system and brodit mount.
I'll know more about all the above + Bluetooth as well after I've fitted all that.
