    Some of the reports I've been reading have said that the battery life of the Incredible is not that great. I would like to purchase a charger for the car and another wall charger to leave at the office. Some sites have less expensive ones like - HTC DROID Incredible Cell Phone Accessories others around $20. The car charger at verizonwireless.com is $22.49. My question is - Is the $5 charger any better then the one offered by Verizon? I don't mind paying a few dollars more, I just want one that works with my new Incredible!
    Also, is there a cell phone accessories site you would reommend?

    For your office you can probably just buy a Micro-usb cable and charge from your computer.
    should work
    Newegg.com - Link Depot 3 ft. USB A/male to Micro USB 5 pin male Model MUSB-3

    My personal opinion is to stay away from dedicated chargers if you can. I went with USB chargers, then just charge from a data cable. I found a 30 pack of 3' micro USB cables on ebay for $30. I then bought one of these Griffin cigarette lighter adapters for each car:
    Walmart.com: Griffin PowerJolt Dual Universal Power Adapter: Audio

    I bought a few dual USB A/C adapters, like these (Sharper Image, liquidation at Marshall's for $7) for work and home:
    Walmart.com: Belkin F8Z187 Dual USB Wall Charger: Audio
    Or you could get real fancy with a few of these:
    Walmart.com: Belkin Mini Notebook Surge Portector with Built-In USB Charger: Computers

    Either way, cheaper than dedicated adapters, and much better.

    The only thing to note is that the original power adapter is 1A whereas the one above is 500mA, so will charge in about 2x the time. I've found though that finding 1A USB chargers isn't as easy as it sounds.
