    I recently purchased a car charger from eBay - it's a mount and charger in one - perfect for my focus! I was dubious that it wouldn't charger my phone and appear as a "USB" charge when plugged in but was pleased to find that it was recognised as "AC".

    So all good? No, the phone still loses charge despite appearing as an "AC" charger...gutted! I thought that if the charger was seen as "AC" it would use the full 1A - pulled out the fuse in the tip and found that it was "1A" fuse!! So why no good?

    Oddly enough, I have just plugged a USB multi sync cable with the MicroUSB head into my laptop and it say's "AC" still - no I'm really confused!

    Its probably drawing slightly more than 500ma but significantly less than 1000ma. My suggestion - and what I did - is to ditch the cheap chargers and go with a genuine HTC one. You'll be glad you did in the long run :)

    I have this kit
    HTC Desire Car Pack

    The charger has 500mA on the sticker but I can use navigation and poweramp while the battery increases it's charge. The holder is rock solid too.

    I had a cheap car charger which just eventually broke. Spent
