    I was thinking the same thing. :D

    My only complain is I wish the vampire value was lower. I swapped my Moto charger for my Samsung cube (which came with my phone) for charging my phone at night.

    I like my MOTO charger too.

    @Colchiro: I am not do for an upgrade for another 5 months, I have an upgrade from another line I could use, but I'd rather not. I am considering switching to AT&T just b/c of the Nexus line of phones, so that I can purchase through Google w/out contract.

    What do you think?

    You realize that the TP charger costs you less than a dime per year, right? ;)

    My TP charger is in the living room. The phone charger is in the bedroom in case I get an emergency call. It charges for 8 hours and I don't need a fast charge rate for the phone.

    Thanks for posting that, I found it interesting. Unfortunately, I didn't order an extra charger, though I did get a Touchstone charger which gives me a second charger. It is also good to see my Samsung charger, though not quite as good, is still one of his better rated ones.

    As for a Nexus, I went that route this summer. I ended up on T-Mobile's $30 plan, and then since I'm around WiFi much of the time, I use Google Voice and Groove IP to supplement my minutes. It has worked well for me, though I don't talk too much and T-Mobile is good in my area. If you need more minutes, Straight Talk does seem to be a good option. It also looks, other than currently being sold out, that the Nexus 4 is a nice phone.

    How's T-Mobile? What were you on before?

    T-Mobile has worked pretty well. I have decent coverage and good, though not great, speeds -- I probably average around 5 Mbps down. Of course, that is with the HSPA+ 21 Galaxy Nexus, with an HSPA+ 42 phone I'd likely be getting speeds a couple of Mbps faster. It is a great plan for $30, with the 5 GB of data, but I will admit that 100 minutes isn't much (additional minutes are $.10/minute). I previously was on Virgin but Sprint's Network was beyond slow in my area -- my best days I was averaging 300 Kbps.

    I usually get around 20 mbps down, but have become disillusioned with VZW's need to delay updates 2 months.
