You really don't need the HTC branded one, they are pretty much all the same. Just buy a micro usb cable and a USB charger. I have 12 different usb chargers from my various devices and they all work the same. To be honest, I don't even use the HTC branded one at all.

Can I assume that's the same for the car charger? Sprint wants $25 for theirs but I see them, unbranded, on eBay for $8.

Yup. I'm using a belkin car adapter that cost me $7 and it works great.

Thanks! I hope I can find one locally rather than pay shipping on eBay. WalMart has some for $15 but I think I can do better.

I got my Belkin one at either best buy or target. I'm thinking it was target. It's just a cig lighter to usb so you gotta get a micro usb cable too.

Damn I paid full price for my car charger. The only good thing is I bought mine at Radio Shack and the one I bought all you have to do is buy different tips for all you different devices. So with each new device I buy I'm saving money

I got the USB->micro USB cable with car and wall chargers on eBay [like this one] for US$4.50, shipping included. It hasn't arrived yet and I'm hoping it's the real deal.

Wasn't such a good deal after all. The cable doesn't fit in either the wall or car charger, both of which feel like kids' toys.

Basically I spent $4.50 for a very short retractable cable.

But picked up a generic charger today with mini- and micro-USB tips for $9 at Discount Electronics, a small chain that all Austinites should know about. The mini fits my camera so I'm good to go!

good info greybear! I was about to get the re-tractable. Well, the search continues. One question is are all of the USB chargers work the same? I am looking on ebay and I think I will just buy the USB charger instead of the one with the cord attachment. This way I can charge any devices that have USB.

Well, I just order the dual USB car charger for about $10 that had very good reviews by users, about 77 reviews. I was afraid of the $2-$5 ones as they were made cheaply. We had a bad storm and power went out and I did not have a car charger, go figure. Hope this works, can't wait.

You can buy a generic car charger at Five Below. Even a plug for the Palm Pre(which I had before the Evo) will work. Most of these plugs are so generic that you won't have a had time finding one. And yes, buy your asscessories on EBAY. Sprint stores mark their asscessories up way too high. Hope this helps.

why don't you get a portable power bank? I think you can get what you want here: www.lowerpricebuy.com (http://www.lowerpricebuy.com)
