    I have a micro USB charger for my Bluettoth headset (Plantronics) and another for my work phone (LG).

    I can't seem to get the X to charge up using either??? Interestingly, if I take the iPhone charger and change the cable from the USB/30 pin to the USB/micro USB it works fine.

    All the chargers are rated 5V. The X on any regular USB port on any computer I've tried so far.

    So, if the 5V is the same for all those chargers, is then just a question of driving enough amps into the X?

    I use a generic micro usb car charger with mine and it works. I wish it had a charging led so you could know it is charging rather then having to look at the battery symbol

    I've found that the charger for my Amazon Kindle works for charging the DroidX. Which is great, because now that I have the Kindle app, I probably won't be using the Kindle anymore.

    On the other hand, I have a generic charger that I used for my previous phone, the Motorola Rival. When that charger gets plugged into the DroidX, the touch screen stops working...

    I'm hoping my LG Voyager car charger works, it's micro as far as I know so I am golden.

    I hate the whole Micro/Mini, jeezus it's confusing.

    Micro=thinner, flatter head
    Mini=squarer, shorter, thicker head

    In short, USB is a standard. Charge-by-USB is not. Signaling varies.

    I used the wall charger from my BB Storm 2 and it worked. I like it because it is longer than the cable that came with the DX.

    My old phone is an LG EnV2. The charger from that works with my Droid X.

    My wife has an LG Voyager, which has a different plug design than my EnV2.
