    Just an FYI...you can over-charge your cell phone on a car charger. These are designed to charge the phone very quickly and do not have internal gauges to determine when to stop.

    Home chargers start off with a full blast charge but diminish the power supply until the phone is fully charged (then shut off).

    You will notice your phone gets much hotter when charging from a car jack.

    You can get very cheap chargers off ebay. I just got a car charger for $3 shipped. They wanted $25 at the Verizon store. I got 8 covers for my LG Voyager for $1.25 shipped. They wanted $10 for 3 covers at the Verizon store.
