    Question Best Wall Charger

    Couple months ago, we had a party in the apartment and somebody lifted my OE charger for my Maxx. I've been using my Droid X charger which is 5v/850mA output. The chargers listed on Moto's website are displayed in Watts and Amps. I didn't look much into the conversion, but I assume that one of these chargers would be the most efficient for out phones?

    Dual Port Charger

    Duo Rapid Charger

    I have one of the second ones. I believe it's identical to what came with our phones. Output is 1150ma (even though the web site says 1.2 amp.)

    I'm not sure about the first one, though I bet it's the same. They both say 6W, they both have dual ports. It just has a folding wall outlet, probably better for travel.

    Frankly, just get a highly rated 2amp one off of Amazon, so it will be able to charge anything you need to. The device regulates the charge, so it's not going to overcharge or be inefficient.

    FWIW 1000mA = 1A. Also Watts = Amps x Volts
