    Who else hates the charger the tbolt comes with? The cord isn't long enough and to thick. I ben using my charger from my samsung fascinate it's much better, long and thin cord.

    Thickness doesn't bother me, I wish it were longer, I now have extension cords for every place I may need to plug in my phone.

    Make sure the ma output of the fascinate charger is at least as strong as the Thunderbolt one, otherwise charging will take longer I do the same as yeahha and use a longer usb cord :)
    Thanks,

    I just wish HTC could of did better on the charger. Not that big of deal the charger the phone comes with works just fine like anything else. The Samsung Fascinate just has alot better charger. And that's the only thing I like better about the Samsung lol

    You do realize the Fascinate cable is literally like, only 10 inches longer, and what, maybe a mm thinner, if that? While I do agree that it could stand to be longer (some of the new VZW home chargers come with a 9' cable now), I can't say personally that the Fascinate one would be THAT much omg so much better to me! Pretty sure the manufacturers are just trying to find a happy medium between using it from the charger, or from a laptop / PC. I know that I sure don't want a really long cable dangling around my laptop if I have to plug it in. I bought a longer cable for my desktop, and then use an older micro wall charger with a 6' cable on it, everything works out fine.

    I'm happy with the charger. The cable is almost twice as long as the one that came with my OG Droid and it's thinner. If I needed it to be longer, I can use an electrical extension cable or get another USB cable...the beauty of USB.

    I got a universal Micro USB cord by Belkin for $15 at Target. I love that thing! It's six feet long. :D
    I use an extension cord in my other room.
