Charger 2.
There'll be US ones around for sure.

You can also get these more flexible type cables from Chinese sites. I've bought from both.!

Charge rate is good but dependant not on the cable so much as on the cigarette-lighter -> USB plug. This needs to be rated over 2 Amp. (There are a lot around that are only 1 Amp.)

Here is the integral curly cable charger but I'm not yet convinced it's 2 Amp.

Like the Sunsky. Not sure how easy it is to tell if its 2A. Personally, I've not gone on a longer road trip to see the effects of a weak charger. I'm still stunned/floor by how long the N3 stock battery lasts for what I considered moderate usage. Plug it in, and within close to 1 hour its mostly changed. Amazing.
