    Yep. Mini USB works on hero, but hero charger doesn't fit into mini usb devices (only angled on one side)

    I don't want to be the one bringing the bad news...

    I bought a Nokia multi-charger (one with multiple, removable connectors) for my old htc tytn and when i use this with my G1 (with the mini-usb connector) it does not charge the phone at all. It does not even lights up the led on top. The actual charger is a wall-socket connector, a standard usb-connector (coupled with the wall-socket piece) which ends in a small, round connector (to which you add whatever connector is appropriate for your phone. It comes with 10 different adapters).

    Having said all this, if i replace the cable that came with this kit with a standard usb->mini-usb data cable and use that instead, it works perfectly.

    Just something to keep in mind :)

    Kind regards

    Daniel

    Check out monoprice.com. I just purchased 3 wall chargers and 2 car chargers for less than $9 after shipping. The cost of the chargers by themselves was $5.87.

    These are for a different phone, but are mini usb. I have not received my order so I cant verify that they work, but I dont see why they would not? You will be hard pressed to find better prices with the same level of customer service. Its one of my favorites sites.
