    Anyone picked up a cheap (third party) car charger for the Hero in the UK? I saw a few on ebay but not sure if they are any good?

    Either something like this (using my own usb cable):

    Or like this:

    I need something that will at least hold (or increase) the charge while using the GPS with satnav software.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Good to know. I am kind of looking for something that is third party, to keep the costs down a little.

    What about phones with different voltage requirements? E.g. If you plug a 9v adaptor into a phone that actually only needs 5v to charge, won't that harm the phone?
