    Anyone know of a charger where the wire is at a right angle to the plug? In almost every case, there is too much tension on the cord when plugged in to keep it standing on the kickstand.

    Also, in the car, a right-angled charger would be useful for me. I found a right-angle auxiliary input for the stereo, and that helps some. Previously, I had one big plug coming straight out of the bottom, and another coming straight out of the top. It is kind of silly.

    Hmmm... Can someone give me a ruling as to whether the Evo uses a mini usb or a micro usb? I'm embarrassed to say that I can't tell the difference, and this is not listed with the technical information on HTCs website.

    Well, they all seem "bent" the same way. I was hoping to have one where the cord was bent towards the back of the phone, if that makes sense. These are bent left-to right instead, which doesn't really help.
