waist of power ? Only if you are using a laptop.

And in this case, like many other Samsung phone, the AC charger only gives 700mA vs 500mA from the computer. Not a big difference.

My HTC AC charger gives 1000mA and I cant even say if its faster than my computer USB port...

And you dont need to leave your PC "ON" btw, you can charge it while it is in "Stand By" mode.
