    Does anyone know if there is an alternative website to Monoprice.com that is similar both in what they sell and in pricing? The only reason I'm asking is because they are out stock of this car charger.

    Check out Meritline.com Not as good of quality as Monoprice but some items are a buck or so with shipping via slow boat from Hong Kong so if you don't need high end parts or to have it quickly this is another option. I still use Monoprice a lot more but it may be something you would be interested in.

    Yeah, Meritline is usually my second choice. I also purchase all my DVD-R's from them.

    Thank you to both of you. I found this car charger on Meritline and it's also 1000 mA. From my understanding, that's the rating to look for when seeking the fastest charging car charger. Is that correct?

    Yes and no. Depends on how much voltage the phone calls for when charging. Generally these ratings can be high from most manufacturers but anything that's 500mAh and above should function about the same. When you dip below this it starts to matter how accurate the rating is and how good the manufacturer is. I personally wouldn't pay more for anything above 500mAh though.

    On the second thought, I think I'll hold off until either Monoprice restocks the one I was originally looking at or I find a good one from another seller. There weren't any ratings for this particular charger on Meritline's website, but there were many complaints on their website for similar products stating that the chargers did not work.
