Bought the $30 Sprint micro-USB charger - have to force it into the charging port and then have to hold device with entire left hand to pull out. Tried 2 others in the store and they were all the same. They also barely charged the device at all....

Yesterday, I bought a $20 Rocketcharger from Best Buy.....fits much better but is barely adding a charge to my device....

what gives here? Ideally, I'd like to find a charger that allows me to use the adapter so that I can charge other things in my car (other people's Curves, my SkyCaddy, etc) but can't find a mini-USB charger that works with the Moto adapter.....any suggestions?
Some chargers dont charge as quick in the car as it is. Also, using non-OEM chargers can damage your device by overcharging it. By reading ur description, i havent found that you have tried any Blackberry Chargers. That might be something you can try, an actual OEM Blackberry charger.
