    Just got my case and charger in the mail. Bought these two...

    It was around $20 for both. Case seems fine. Snug fit, kickstand seems a bit flimsy...
    The end of the car charger looks exactly like the one for my Incredible. It fits, haven't tried it in the car yet..my home charger has a much bigger tip, wondering if the smaller one will hurt the battery in any way?

    Also, when both sides of the case are on, charging isn't an option. The case covers a bit of the area where you plug it in. Might take a knife or something and chop away just a tiny bit of the case. Wouldn't be much at all and hardly noticeable.

    I use a blackberry, a Samsung, and a DInc charger with no issues. In my experience, don't go cheap when buying car chargers. You end up paying more after all the replacements.

    I have no idea why this charger looks so different but my gf doesn't know it fits her Samsung. Win!

    Yep...you should be able to use any mobile phone charger for your Rezound as long as the plug fits. Usually the variation in output and amps are negligible but if you're worried just check that they match.

    I've used at least 5 different phone chargers on my Rezound.

    Be sure the charger is 1A or higher type. (The home/overnight charger that comes with the phone is 1A type.) have fun....

    Depends on how old you are. "Old Style" means different things to different people... :p

    You got it. I did a lot of charger research with my TBolt. Chargers less than 1A will charge it, but it will be slower. If you're doing anything with it while it's charging, it may just keep up & not gain much. I usually stick to the Verizon chargers because they've always worked great and you can get the wall charger on Amazon for about $6.00 as opposed to $30.00 at Verizon. Most of Verizon and HTC brand accessories are a lot less on Amazon. The description says the blades don't fold, but they do. I have three now.

    A lot of people use the Motorola car charger which is also about $5.00 on Amazon. It's just under 1A (.950mA) but works great and you won't notice any difference.

    I'm always a little wary of off brand chargers, especially if they don't list their spec's.
