    Hey everyone. I just received an email from best buy that my pre-order of the SG3 was ready for pickup! I also just received my set of chargers that I ordered through newegg.

    What I ordered included:
    Fosmon Crystal Clear Case
    Rapid Car Charger
    Home Wall Charger
    USB Data Charge Sync Cable
    Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S3 S III

    Link to the item on newegg: Newegg.com - Fosmon Crystal Clear Case + Rapid Car Charger + Home Wall Charger + USB Data Charge Sync Cable + Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S3 S III

    After seeing in the news about someone's SG3 catching fire being possibly due to thier use of a cheap car charger, do you think it's a good idea for me to try these on my phone? Have you guys used any of these yet?

    I had also heard that another cause might have been that the charger the person used didn't have the proper pin arrangement for the SG3.

    What constitutes a cheap charger ? How much enough to spend ?

    Hehe, good question. Seeing as a lot of "official" chargers could run $30 for just the usb cable and wall plug I figured $14 for a car charger, wall charger, and usb cord was pretty cheap.

    was just looking at an article that basically said that the person whose phone got burned was really put in the microwave after getting wet so the user could "dry it"

    used google translate to translate it...

    so you should be fine with your charger

    So I did a Google search and some light reading .... Turns out that ..... Everyone has there own opinion and that I am no better off then where I started .... I guess that a $ 15 charger should be better than a $ 5 charger ..... However I found Samsung oem chargers on amazon for $3.

    I had to send my skyrocket in for repairs, due to non-charging issues.
    Think it may have been related to non-oem chargers.
    I wouldn't personally recommend it.

    I'm using the BlackBerry Playbook charger (the one Kevin was talking about on a recent Android Central podcast) and it's great. Got it on Amazon for just over $15.
