    Using a different charger is not going to matter. I bought a $12 Griffin USB car charger. It has two ports and I can charge my GPS, iPod, and my BB off of it. Nothing better.

    Nice post - I'm gonna grab a couple of these.

    My battery works great!

    I'd like to have 2nd charger at work and maybe a 3rd in my work bag for when I travel.

    Might get a 2nd battery with charger if I'm gonna do a lot of traveling.

    where and what did you purchase? Since battery life ain't that great on Tour, Im def. gonna have to purchase car charger.

    I read somewhere that the main reason why they switched to micro USB is so they can sell more accessories since most people have the mini USB accessories already.

    I've also read people recommend not to buy those cheap car chargers off ebay but I bought a cheap car charger from ebay for like $5 for my 8830 and never had issues so I'll most likely go the same route, where ever is cheapest.

    where did you guys purchase and for how much?

    I received a car charger and wall charger free when I upgraded my 8703e to the Tour. Both work well.

    I only wish there was a cradle type solution for a charger. The wall charger/plug OEM solution is so inelegant. I know they make a cradle, but you still have to use the plugin.

    I bought my car charger from here. There may be cheaper out there. But I'm just goofy enough to want the blackberry car charger......

    I bought a cigaret adaptor with a retractable cord for .3 cents and 2.98 shipping off of amazon. it charges slow, but that doesn't bother me.

    I also bought a blackberry oem charger for 1.78 new plus 1.99 shipping and handling off of amazon. plus an extra usb to micro cable for .50 cents, shipping was included with the charger.

    I use this Motorola one. Part No. is either P513 or Model 23014J

    I love the cool light-up effect in the charger. Try it out!

    I had the mini-USB version when i had my 8330.
    Had an aftermarket one first when I got my 8330. Returned it as it didn't work, and ended up with this one.

    Just got my 9630, and the micro-USB version along with it.

    I just bought a couple of these adapters. I have so many mini usb chargers lying around it was pointless to get a couple more.

    OEM Motorola Mini usb to Micro usb Adapter converter - eBay (item 260451354776 end time Aug-21-09 08:12:52 PDT)

    I like these small adapters better than the dongle...

    I didn't know they had that adapter, but I wouldn't have bothered anyway. My 8330 is going to co-worker as their 1st pda, so mini-usb car charger going with it.

    Good advice for others though!

    Any issues with the adapter yet? (charging as quickly, etc)
