Where can I buy an additional oem charger for the S2?
Amazon:micro usb charger
Amazon is your friend.
The only oem on amazon is in bulk packaging with mixed reviews.
you dont need an oem charger, any micro usb charger/cable will work. you can plug any standard micro usb in your phone/computer and it'll charge. But if you for some reason need an oem charger an att store will be your best bet.
Whatever you do, don't get this one:
Amazon.com: Samsung Replacement USB Data Charging Cable for Samsung SPH-M330, SCH-R100, SGH-T939, SCH-R850: Cell Phones & Accessories
does not charge or sync with the S2. Blarg. I did find one at Best Buy that does both nicely. But it was $20!
Yes any micro usb charger will charge it but some of them will lock the phone out from use while it is plugged in. So if you need to use your phone while it is charging, your best bet is to get the OEM charger for this phone.
Good to know.
Really! I bought 3 of those (same vendor) back in July and they all work fine on my Samsung Infuse and any other micro adapter device I have. Haven't got my GSII yet (waiting to see T-Mo's first) but according to the part number on them they are the same cable Samsung sells for $29 or so. Are you sure you just don't have a bad cable?
You know what, the second of these cables that I ordered arrived today and it DOES work. I guess the first one was just bad.

$3.99 for this one, and it looks exactly like the one that came with the phone.
