    I'd like to get a backup charger for work, preferably a wall charger, 2A. And I'd like a new 2A car charger, as people are reporting that if you're driving and using the N2 with a standard 1am, you won't be charging but likely still draining.

    So, best places for best prices? Sprint corp store offered to sell me one for a ridiculous price, I said no thanks.

    Anyone have this one: http://www.amazon.com/PowerGen-Dual-...cUvbUpU2274338

    Or this one:

    That is because apple doesn't follow the USB standards for dedicated chargers...... they are special Almost all the manufacturers cater to Apple. I had to modify my 1A car charger so my Note 1 would charge at the full 1A (I tied the D+ and D- pins together). The HP Touchpad AC chargers are cheap ($5, come with a nice long uUSB cord, and are rated at 2A or 2.1A) and charged my Note 1 at 1A without modification. I wonder if it will charge the Note 2 at 2A. Anyone with a Note 2 and HP Touchpad charger out there?

    Can you tell us more about this wiring mod, with pinouts? Or just link me to what you are talking about?

    I used an ipad charger on the note 1 and have a slew of generic chargers. They all charge but I didn't pay attention to the speed they charged at.

    In this Wikipedia article Universal Serial Bus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia check out the "Charging ports and accessory charging adapters" section and the "physical appearance" section. Here is an article about modifying your charger. How to Modify 1 Amp Car Chargers to show AC Mode

    I've been using the same ac unit as nexus 7. It seems like it charges faster on it than the stock unit.
