I just got my car car charger in the mail about a week ago. As a Verizon customer I normally buy my charger directly form them but I noticed that they do not last very long. I purchased this charger because it has a USB port so I can plug other cables into it to charger other electronics while my phone is charging. I am pleasantly surprised that the cable on the charger is thicker and stronger than the charger I had from Verizon. It also was a good price and came very fast in the mail.Thanks!
