Obviously, I'd like to spend less than $30 for a charger, but if that's what it'll take to get a reliable one I'll consider it.
You could go with the iGo charger from Radio Shack or other vendors. You buy a charger (mobile or AC) which comes with one free charge adapter tip. Then add any other adapter tips for other equipment you own. The tips are designed to deliver the correct voltage and current to the connected device. They pretty much cover everything around. Check out Home at iGo, Inc.
I use them for all my small electronics, including my Tour, scanners, Amateur radios, Bluetooth devices. It's a lot easier carrying around one charger and a small group of tips than several chargers, especially when traveling.
