Default 12V DC charger

Looking for a 12V DC charger at a local store..

Choices aren't great...

Walmart, Staples, Radio Shack, Target....

I bought one at Walmart for all Samsung devices, but it didn't work..

What should I be looking for...

I tried asking one of the Techs at Staples.. Dumb idiot was useless...

Thanks

I bought this pack about 2 years ago. Always give me a full amp charging. You'll need a good usb cable though.

Edit: can't post links, search Walmart Rayovac usb charger.

12vdc charger and a separate household comes in about $12

Appreciate the info...

What is a good usb cable considered...

i bought a 12v Duarcell USB 2.1 Amp today.
It charges my Galaxy S3. but doesn't charge the i717..

I'm starting to wonder if I need a better cable like you are recommending.

I have a couple cables that work with the AC USB adapter and on my computer..

But they will not work with the 2.1 amp DC usb adapter.

I figured the 2.1 amp would be enough.

What should I be looking for Amp/Watt wise in an adapter...

Thanks
