Somone posted in one of the EVO forums a few years ago that their cheapo car charger caught fire inside of the car.
Thanks - and thank you, Marc...

The only reason I went w/ the cheap charger is that it was the only car charger that had a removable USB cable that I can remove from the car adapter & plug in to my PC @ work. Do you out anyone else know of a more reliable charger that does the same thing? Thanks again.

...just tried it again. I get a solid orange light for a few seconds, then it blinks again... I think I'm just going to return it as I don't want to risk screwing the phone up... Any recommendations for a quality car charger w/ removable USB would beGREATLY appreciated!
