    It looks like the charger I received when I purchased my phone at CostCo, but I could be wrong.

    Thanks...I just bought one. $5.00 standard delivery btw.

    From what I read in the comments, it puts out 950A, which is good because the Bionic can draw up to 850A I believe.

    The one I bought seems just as well built as anything I have bought in the stores for $20-$30. What is nice about this charger is it put out higher voltage. I had one of those USB car chargers that you just plug your USB cable into and when using navigation my phone would actually continue to discharge. I have this one plugged into my car dock and so far it seems to be working well. The phone does get warm but it was getting warm before with the weaker charger. No reboots or any problems like that.

    I also think that the couple of reviews on there that claim they got a fake may have ordered from a third party vendor that sells through Amazon and not direct from Amazon. The one I got direct from Amazon is a genuine Moto charger. Always make sure it says shipped and sold from Amazon.

    I ordered and am using this one. It does the job and there's no phone over-heating. But the plastic construction does seem cheaper than the one I got with my Droid X. I'm afraid this one might come apart or break if I pull it in out of the cigarette adapter too many times. Luckily I usually just always leave it plugged in the car so I won't worry about it. Other than that, you can't beat the price!

    I had a mini USB version of this charger long ago that I used with my Moto RAZR. It was a quality product that lasted longer than the phone. I paid around 25 bucks in a US Cellular store for it.

    Just ordered mine since my VZW brand charge isn't capable of charging my phone fast enough during GPS use.
