    Default Car Charger & Accessory Questions

    Just ordered G Nex from Play Store. Read through some threads and still have questions.

    I have a NX4G, will my car charger work with this phone? If not, where is the best place to find one? Looked at Expansys and they only have 1 car charger with a terrible rating. I've also seen Ebay as a place to buy, looking for the best place to order.

    Is this phone the i9250? A little confused about that. Thanks in advance.

    I know, a stupid & frequently asked question, but I need clarification.

    I do a lot of research on new phones, been looking for one for my wife, got her an HTC One X. Nice phone, great for her - she's coming off an HTC Sense phone so kinda used to it. But for me, it reinforced my decision to go stock and hit the Play Store. I did no research on it.

    From what I can tell, it uses a micro USB and in addition a 3 pin charger. Think my NS4G has the same micro USB? If not it looks like it will be easy to find locally, correct? And I can easily find a car charger with USB and that should work as well, right? I constantly use a car charger so need to be prepared.

    Seems as if there will be no 3 pin charger made for car, I can understand that since it looks like the power button is on the same side as the 3 pin. Not functional for a car. I did see the desk dock they made for it, not sure if that's for me.

    And, as a side note, I ordered this phone about 4 hours ago, an email notification just popped up telling me the phone has been shipped. Cool!

    Any micro USB charger should work fine.

    Any micro USB charger WILL work fine.

    The three electrical contacts are for docks, none of which is officially for sale in the U.S. at this time.

    Yeah, thank you. Stupid question, guess I'm used to the older phones that always changed charger type every new phone back in the day. First for us, we each just got a new phone and can use the same charger! The chargers I had for NS4G obviously work well.

    Also ordered the desktop charger, on back order..that looks cool. I was wondering, does the 3 pin charger charge as well as the micro USB? Would be nice to have a 3 pin charger for the car if it does charge well.

    Now just trying to find a case. Have a Seidio Active X on old phone and that has been my favorite of any I've had. Been searching here on the forum and online, went out today and found a Defender. Bought it, traveled a couple of miles with it and couldn't wait to get back to Radio Shack and take that brick off! Don't even know why I walked out of the store with it in the first place.

    This may be a late response but i'll do it anyway. My samsung orig car charger on my Nexus S works well on my Gnex. For cases, I prefer the thin tpu as i'm using an extended battery. So far i've the sgp ultra capsule, diztronic rev 3, mercury and capdase soft xpose2. All work well
