    Hey all,

    I'm looking for another USB charger for my Captivate. One to have at home, and the other at work. Anyone have a link to one that'll work with the phone without having to put a huge whole in my wallet?

    USB cable: Amazon.com: RiteAV - USB A to Micro-B Cable 6 ft.: Electronics

    Use the USB port on your PC, or stereo, or cable box, or something; if you have nowhere to plug it, there's this: Amazon.com: Black 2-Port USB Home Travel Charger for Apple iPhone 1st, 2nd 3G, 3rd 3Gs, Ipod Touch 1st, Touch 2G, Ipod Nano: Electronics: Reviews, Prices & more

    (I have 3 of those cables on order for myself, but have not received them yet.)

    Thanks. Please let me know if they work out for you when you get them. I'll check out the local AT&T store as well.

    I'm using a blackberry cable and everything seems fine. I'm sure some people have a bunch of those lying around

    I got mine on Meritline for 99 cents each (with coupon, they seem to put their microUSB cords on sale about once a week.) You have to wait a little while for it to get here from China, but you can't beat the price.

    I also got a handful of mini-to-micro USB converters so I can put all those old RAZR chargers back to work. :D

    The "regular" retail markup on cables and chargers is obscene.

    Be careful: a lot of these "OEM" cables being sold by third-parties are really short (3') and not the 5' or so that the real OEM cable is.
