    Default Charger with Purchase of a HTC phone

    Some time ago I read that HTC in the move to being Green was going to not ship phones with chargers.
    I haven't gotten a phone for 2 years and am looking at the DNA, just curious is this was the case and do they
    provide specs of what a charger spec should be for a specific phone since many chargers have various
    output rates.

    I've never heard anything like that. I'm sure it'll be coming with a charger. They would be crazy to not ship it with one.

    So I googled it and there is some stuff going on over seas,

    O2 and HTC will begin selling a new, as yet unannounced, phone before the end of the year without a charger in the box as part of a pilot scheme to reduce the number of wasted chargers in circulation.

    O2 and HTC to sell phone without a charger, in deliberate ploy to be more green - Pocket-lint

    But I though I read something about HTC in general... Alex What's going on ??

    Oh, I've never seen that, but I don't expect it'll catch on unless they lower the price of the phone and it probably won't then either. I have like 5 or 6 chargers and I use them all and would still want my phone to come with one. Just put them in different places and never have to move them around. I don't see Verizon signing off on that though so I think we're safe with the DNA.

    Don't have to worry about it with the DNA. Someone asked Phil in another thread and he said there is a charger in the box:

    I saw this on verizon wireless website today "With wireless charging support all you have to do is plug in your charging pad and simply drop and charge your Droid DNA by HTC" WTF???

    Why is this shocking to you? There are other phones that support this functionality already.

    I'm not sure why there is surprise here. The phone will not ship with a charger as due to new technologies it will not require a charge for at least 2 years at which time, Verizon will offer a one time charge up of your phone for $300.

    I know they stopped shipping beats headphones (or headphones at all) to save money. Never heard anything about chargers. The unboxing shows there is a charger, so don't worry.
