unless you have an emergency. NEVER NEVER NEVER, plug your cellular phone into a car charger - unless you know for certain its not a quick / snap charger. Those chargers murder a battery.
Go to Crackberry and purchase a dock charger with a spare battery charger. Purchase 2 spares and rotate them out with you daily. When or if your Storm gets low on juice, pop in a fresh battery. A spare fits comfortably in any pocket.
This practice always served me well in the days were a couple long winded conversations on social outings killed my battery. I was never without service when I carried a spare with me.
So, the next question is, how do you determine which is a "quick charger", and which is the one that you are supposed to use. Just because you get it from Verizon doesn't mean that it will be the best for your device. I got mine from Verizon when I ordered my phone, but I still have the package it came in.
Please post here what I am looking for in order to discern good charger and naughty charger...
It should say on the package or you can just as one of the techs.
It has been my experience that freebies and most store brand chargers are either quick chargers unless they specify otherwise. What you want is some sort of smartcharger that detects when the battery is full and doesn't overcharge it.
The Doubletalk charger that JSanders posted the link for was priced very nicely and also had the chip that prevents it from overcharging.
Jeez, the battery itself has an overcharge protection circuit. His problem is that the charger he is using just doesn't provide enough current for a low battery. Lets all try to get him to buy a bucket full of accessories he doesn't need. All he needs is a decent car charger. I'd take the charger back to VZW and get a replacement.
