most chargers that run off car lighter sockets are not powerful enough to accept charging on the phone. most will continue to drain even though it says 'charging' and shows the battery animation. it seems the supplied charger is the only one that works, and puts out a couple of amps @ 5V. even other Android phone chargers i got lying around (but only eke out half an amp) won't charge this thing. it seems the battery needs a pretty high-power charger to charge.
