Are 1000ma chargers safe to use with these phones? I don't want to blow up the phone.
vehicle chargers and docks
Friday 14th of December 2012
I'm a pretty heavy user during the work week. I found myself at 7% charge on the way home from a 8 hour work day. I need a car charger and/or a dock for easy navigation. I found this charger on Amazon. I bought a car charger for my last phone from Amazon, and it ruined my battery. What do I need to know when buying something like this?

My problem is, I can't seem to find a charger that will keep my phone charging while running in this dock. In fact, I'd be happy even if I found one that kept it dead even, as it is right now it drops about a percent every 1-2 minutes or so. When I'm in the dock I'm running a dashcam app and I know they use battery but I turn the screen off so I would imagine I should be able to find a charger that will at least keep it from draining while doing this, right? I've read various information on data vs. charge cable, etc. so do I possibly need to swap out the cable this thing came with? Or am I just not buying the right type of charger? I've tried one or 2 of the "cheapy" chargers that are single USB outlets supposedly rated at 1000mA and I picked up one this weekend that is another single outlet 2.1A charger and claims to be fo
