    So Im under the impression that one from VZW doesn't exist yet? Or does it?
    Does anyone have any links to some? I checked ebay but I think most are just cheapos from people that are making them. You just need a cigarette lighter w/a micro usb port right? But I don't think I want to have to carry my charging chord back and forth all the time. So maybe the full package would work. Or at least one & the other.

    Anyone else look for one and find something worth while?

    The car charger I got is the universal one from Verizon. Got it when I got my phone.

    That's what I did. I was happy that the cigarette lighter plug will go up to 1000mA, because the Droid needs more than the standard USB 500mA current draw.

    i'm waiting for details on this. i hope the "included" car charger will not just be an additional cable but a connection like the multimedia dock.

    Strangely, on youtube there is no sign of a car charger included with the car mount.

    Man, I love monoprice. 5.01 for two of those razr2 chargers shipped. Picked up a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable for my car stereo as well. 5.98 total, excellent.

    I bought the car mount and the only thing in the box was a piece of plastic that holds the phone and attaches to your car's window. I returned it the same day due to it being almost worthless for the 29.99 plus tax they charge for it.

    I think the car dock that Verizon is selling is not the official Motorola one. The confusion I think comes from the fact that the Motorola one, which isn't released yet, will come with a charger.

    Car Mount for DROID by Motorola - Motorola USA

    See that one says it comes with a rapid car charger but it is still COMING SOON. The one you get from Verizon is a different one and hence no charger, I think.

    That is the exact same car cradle you get from vzw, only difference is one comes with a charger and the vzw one doesn't. It is made by Motorola though, says it right on it.
