    Any recommendations on a good car and wall charger? Ones on Ebay look really cheap. Battery life is excellent, but I just like to have an extra for work.

    No one huh? Looks like I'll just go with Samsung original.

    Agreed, I have an at&t note 2 and tried using a older (1 year) Samsung charger that I already had set up for my previous phone. I had issues with the phone not charging fully at night, so I started using the charger that came with the note 2 and all is well again.

    I am guessing the note 2 charger may be a 2 amp charger instead of the 1.0 or 1.3 amp variety due to the size of the battery. I haven't looked to be sure yet.

    Yup it's 2 amps. I'm buying the Samsung one. Wish they offered the car charger. I'm gonna call them to see.

    Well, this is interesting. I had not thought about chargers before thinking a charger is a charger is a charger. Now I am wondering if the car charger for my (little) DroidX will not not be best for the Note2...

    I've gone a different route and actually bought 2 spare Anker batteries that come with a stand alone wall charger from amazon. The charger is a trickle charger but with two extra on hand it's not really an issue. I just replace the drained one with a ready to go one. It can be a good way to get longer life out of your batteries as well. I basically get a deep cycle recharge with every battery.

    The only downside is having to take off the back cover every time but I still find the benefits to this method outweighs having to keep your phone plugged to a wall periodically.

    The battery life on this phone is great to begin with so it all depends on the individual's phone usage. But I am a very heavy user and with this method I basically never have to worry about my phone dying when I need it.
