Default Car charger for the S3?

I have a car charger for my old phone, the LG Optimus S, that doesn't really work very well with my S3. It bounces back and forth between charging and not.

What is a good car charger, that plugs into the "accessory port", or whatever the former cigarette lighter port is called?

I have two car charge ports in my car.
The cigarette lighter slides out with the ashtray and is ugly when open so I never use it as I don't smoke and it's just annoying.
However I've found that only certain car chargers will work on the 2nd port in the car located between the front seats. I found an aftermarket one works perfectly and doesn't give a "fast charge", whereas one I bought specifically from an online website for S3's won't work at all, but does in the cigarette port lol.

I guess it's just a bit of trial and error.
