    Hi folks,

    Can I use a regular USB cable to charge my G1 cell phone or do I need the proprietary HTC USB cable? Thanks. :)

    You can use a regular USB cable, I have a few PC's at home and a couple at work which I use for charging my G1 as and when I need to. The original cable is lost somewhere in amongst one of them, but they all charge my G1 flawlessly.

    If your car stereo has a USB port, that will even charge it too

    I tried this in my car, because my stereo has a USB port. It'll charge for about 5-10 seconds, and then the radio turns off. I dunno why :(

    Here's the stereo I have: Clarion U.S.A. | DB365USB

    I'm not really sure where I'd even look to find out voltages and such, and even if I did I still have no clue what to compare that to on the G1 to see if it's causing the problem :)
