I always thought it was nothing but a racket that there were no universal chargers for phones. It was obviously a way to add on more to the cost of a phone. I'm glad most phones have USB style plugs that can go anywhere.
@Grivusangel -- I'd seen those adapters at the store, but didn't know whether they worked well or not. Since you say they do, I'll venture a few dollars on one. It just gripes me to think about shelling about $40 on a car charger when $5 will get the same darn thing!
