- Hi guys,
I am trying to find a good car charger for my EVO but wanted to check here before making any purchases. I was looking at this combo kit on Amazon- Amazon.com: HTC EVO 4G LTE (Sprint) Premium Combo Pack - Wall Charger + Car Charger + Micro USB Cable ATOM LED Keychain Light: Cell Phones & Accessories. I just am not sure if I should go with an official product or if a generic charger will do the same job but at a lower cost without negatively affecting my battery.
Thanks!09-05-2012 09:26 AM
- I would go with a charger rated the same as the official charger (input 100-240V 200mA 50-60 Hz, output 5V 1A). Also, you may want to use an HTC OEM cable, while the generic cables may be cheaper I've had problems using those (generally either the cable failing or causing the phone to overheat).

- I got one of these and use the OEM cable to charge in the car. works perfectly.

I've used other non oem chargers off ebay that were cheap and it started to mess with the phone (palm pre), so I stopped. I found this one to be able to charge my evo lte and my husbands iphone at the same time, quickly too, and not put a drain on the battery or mess up our phones.09-05-2012 03:32 PM

- I wonder how you know when they are knockoffs. I have purchased a number of these from Amazon and they are all dead to quickly...I use the same thing. I've bought more than 10 of them. One in every car and I've given away several to people who needed one. No problems with any of them. Just make sure to get the genuine ones sold directly by Amazon. Some of the other sellers on there sell knockoffs.09-19-2012 09:29 AM

- Checked today and they are $4.69 on Amazon. I'm going to get me a couple more. I've got to stop giving away my car chargers.
