    Yep! I think that will work - matches the specs on the HTC AC adaptor that came with the inc. So at monoprice you can get the micro usb + the AC converter and come away with a cheap power charger.

    Man, I love monoprice. I hope these all work with the Incredible. For $20 shipped, I just ordered 4 cables, 4 USB car charger adapters and 2 of the wall USB adapters. The adapters should all work for my family's other phones and iPods too. :)

    Yeah, I'd never heard of monoprice until I saw someone else mention it on a different thread here yesterday.

    I bought two of the cables that Geoff linked in the first post, plus one of the AC adapters that I linked to, and also one of the USB car chargers - so for a total of $7.99 (including shipping) I've added a wall charger and a car charger.

    At the VZW store they wanted $65 for an extra wall charger and phone charger ($29.99 each plus tax).

    So now I'll have a charger at home, a charger at the office, and a charger in the car - this should help greatly in alleviating the battery life problem. For a mere 8 bucks I think it's certainly worth trying before blowing $60+ on an extended battery...

    I'd like to buy a usb cable, wall charger and vehicle charger from monoprice. Can anyone direct me to the best black components that have the same stats as the one that came with the phone? I have no idea what the difference is between male and female cables/chargers. Any help would be appreciated! :)

    In line with keeping cost down. I use an old powered USB hub as an extra ac plug. The phone will charge without the hub being connected to computer.

    Hey guys. I had bought a couple micro USB cables from Best Buy, and all they did was charge the phone. They did not sync data. Does anyone know if these cables from monoprice will sync and transfer data in addition to charging? Thanks!

    Watch the USB wall chargers from Monoprice, I ordered two and one is faulty. It charges the phone, but the screen and soft buttons on the front are dead when it is plugged in. When using the other, the phone is fine and it behaves just like when attached to the HTC cable and wart that came with the phone.

    I may send it back to monoprice, but at 2.00, it's probably not worth the hassle. I'll just take a USB to micro cable to work and power the phone off of my machine there if needed.
     
  16. I'm in on that monoprice buy. Got an adapter and cable.

    Did anyone receive their orders yet? Can someone confirm if the USB cables from monoprice charge AND sync? Thanks a lot.

    I ordered two of these (6') before from monoprice for my other devices and they both work just fine for charging and sync with the Incredible.

    It should. I am using my charger for the iphone as an extra wall charger and a car charger. Just plug in the USB cable from my phone to the charger and its all good.
