Amazon is the place, that is where I get all my incidentals or my phone. I got a blackberry micro usb for like 1.50, a 1000 mah car charger for a like 4, and screen protectors x5 (not the best, but they will work) for 5.

I've looked at that Motorola one before at Amazon, but it looks a bit large. That's OK if it works well I suppose, but I'm really after a multiple charger. This one with 950mA out could handle another port. If it did I'd already have one. Anyone know of a good quality (ample powered) 2 or 3 port car charger?

I didn't bite at the $18 price tag, but did grab a $4 2000mA single-port adapter also on ebay. Coming from Hong Kong at that price of course, but I'll test it out and review when I receive it later this month or early next... :rolleyes:
Edit: Also saw this one - 4 ports, 3000mA:

Oh I forgot to add: On the Incredible, the phone saw the USB port on those types of chargers as a USB host (just like it would on a laptop), and would only draw a max of 500ma, regardless of what the charger was outputting. There are 2 pins you can solder together inside the charger, that will will fix that, but it's not the most elegant hack. That's why I ultimately went with a regular non-USB charger. You might want to verify that the S doesn't do the same thing. However it probably does, because it doesn't want to draw it's max input from a USB port on a laptop, if it thinks that's what it's plugged into.

I have had very good luck with items from Cell phone accessories, Mobile accessories - Motorola, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Nextel, Sony ericsson, Sanyo, Kyocera, Audiovox and Bluetooth very inexpensive, order 2 or 3 car chargers as it always nice to have one extra to take in another vehicle and not a biggie if I forget it, you can also get longer usb data cables....

I usually end up buying about 1 of these a month when they go on sale for around $1 with free shipping Meritline. All of them are still working and charge great. I had to jumper the data pins on a couple so the phone would see them as fast rate chargers(very easy to do). I like these because they are very small and dont stick out of the socket very far.

it would be nice if some one could come up with a software fix for the only drawing 500 ma from a usb i was going to fix one of the usb ports on my desktop computer so it was not drawing power from the board but rather directly from the power supply and still be able to use data. I do think it is a good idea to have that safe guard.
