    Title says it all: I've sent back the car charger i got from HTCPedia, and need a new one ASAP. Now that I know a little more about how these chargers work with the DInc, I want to make sure I buy one that will charge the phone at 1A instead of 500mA. Do we know of any car chargers that, from 1st-hand experience, will charge the DInc at 1A? Remember, the specs on the charger do not necessarily tell us how much the phone will take while being charged.

    I can confirm that my incredible shows AC instead od usb when plugged into the verizon oem car charger. Search on ebay they're available for about $7 without the verizon sticker on them.

    If it shows "AC", it will pull up to 1A or whatever the max of the charger is (whichever is lower).

    Probably a weak charger. If it only puts out like 600mA, it'll still drain.

    Thanks, please let us know how it works. I'll probably be ordering it within the week but would wait a bit longer to hear your opinion on it first.

    I use a Belkin FM Transmitter and it puts out a full 1A. Using GPS, streaming Pandora, and transmitting via FM, my Inc. will charge and maintain a full charge now. :)

    Alright then, I ordered one today. Thank you for letting me know how it worked out. I will also share my experience for anybody else who has been wondering how it works. To me this was quite an important thread, I hope some others have been checking up on it in anticipation as well. For those of us who haven't upgraded our batteries, it sucks when using the GPS, or bluetooth, or a music player while driving, just to see you've drained your battery a LOT when you reach your destination. Hopefully this will no longer be the case!

    Can you give us the model number or a link? I am looking for something that will charge when using streaming audio and gps. Also does FM transmitter transmit all sound? If so hows the quality?
