    Since the Droid is a micro-USB connection, I am assuming that we do not have to purchase the over-priced Motorola/VZW accessories? All that is necessary is standard car/wall adapter that accepts USB input. Then, any micr-USB cable will suffice. A quick look at different sites has the chargers for ~$10 and a micro-USB cable is only ~$3.

    Is this correct thinking?

    Thank you. Saved me ordering that extra car charger. Since I already have a USB wall charger at the house, I only need to buy a second micro-USB cable from the Egg.

    Historically, Motorola has crippled the charging. My RIM/Blackberry charger shows up on my work Motorola phone as "Unauthorized Charger" and will not charge the phone.

    I hate that this phone is microUSB. I have 3 motorola miniUSB wall chargers and a car charger from previous phones. Now they go and change it... damn aholes, lol. I might buy both docks now so so I can keep the wall charger in my briefcase for travel and keep the dock at home for charging at night.

    There are mini-usb to micro-usb converters. I have a number of them for my Storm, since the vast majority of my sync cables were mini-usb.

    I hope they don't do that with the Droid. One thing I was considering was an external battery/charger.
