    quick question. I don't think this makes much of a difference, but would a Samsung charger work on my phone. I read somewhat the pins were a little diff . I think that's bs. but I want a 2nd opinion.

    It should work fine as long as it's a micro usb connector.

    I would avoid any all-in-one units that have the cable and AC plug as one unit. The tip on micro-usb cords seem to have a short life if you're not careful and replacing the cord is easier then the whole unit. At least, that has been my experience.

    eclipsed039: Why not just purchase an OEM charger?

    The phone is going to rate/limit the charging anyway.

    Going with a big 2A charger is something you'd need if you have a big device like an Apple iPad, or HP Touchpad or some other honker appliance like that.

    BTW, the LG OEM chargers on eBay are like half the price you quoted with free shipping, including a cable.

    Skip the 2A charger, get one or 2 OEM chargers. That is what I did.:driver:

    For my HP Touchpad, I have what is called a Touchstone Induction charger. Now that is cool technology. No mechanical cycles on the microUSB connector. :fight:
