Car Charger

Where can I get a car charger for my Verizon Touch Pro?

I have one for my Dash that appears to work, but I need another.

Can I just get any car to mini-usb charger or is there some one with specific voltage/amp requirements that I need to watch out for?

Is there an OEM one available yet?

Re: Car Charger

Technically, yes, you can use any mini-USB car charger. The catch is that the Touch Pro seems to charge even slower than most phones when on a low-power charger. So look for ones that specifically advertise to be high-power output.

Re: Car Charger

if i've read and understand correctly, most car>usb converters, along with just hooking the usb cable to a computer's usb port, supplies 500mah, but the wall charger supplies 1000mah, which is the reason why is take so much longer via car or computer usb vs. the wall charger. may be something to consider when buying (for the future, or if you haven't pulled the trigger yet.) any usb is typically 5v.
