    I just found it kind of annoying how short the charger is that comes with the phone. Anybody have any recommendations for where to get a longer micro usb charger that works with the droid for pretty cheap?

    Thanks.

    Another vote for Monoprice. My boyfriend and I (we both have Droids) just ordered like 6 cables, between 3 and 10 feet, from them. Total including shipping was less than $30. Sweet. :)

    Another + for monoprice and yes the short cord that comes with the droid sucks.

    all you need is a standard micro USB cable, nothing special about it.
    I have the startech right angle one, was a little more $ but nice that it doesn;t stick out so far from the phone

    Thanks for the website...I have been needing to get some cables. I just ordered 2 6ft cables for a total of 5 dollars (shipping and all).

    Just a FYI, it's the micro usb B version.

    They also sell a 1A usb charger which has worked great so far. It costs less than $3 bucks and is a decent replacement for your stock charger.
