This has probably been noted before, but a little extra info never hurts.

The Moto P518 is regarded by many as the best car charger on the market at the moment. It's a rapid charger with a 1amp capacity and works great on the Nexus (as well as about a billion other microUSB devices).

The best part is it sells for $3.89 on Amazon. (Make sure you buy it directly from Amazon and NOT a 3rd part vendor to assure authenticity). Which is not that much more expensive than those crappy $1 charges you find on ebay all day.

I've got 2 and they look nice, are built nice and work great. They definitely put my Verizon, AT&T and Sprint branded chargers to shame, which have a difficult time charging with the screen and GPS on. The only downside (if you can even call it a downside) is the blue light is a bit bright at night. Not like staring into the sun bright, but somewhat bright.

Used it since my Captivate days and had no issues. Looks great, cord is long, does everything it's suppose to do.

Can't comment on the speed in which it charges as I don't have any other car charger as comparison, but I have never had any issues with it charging too slow at least.

I bought two. The one for me and one for my girlfriend. Hers doesn't light up at all for some reason but it still charges, mine has the blue light but I actually kind of like it.

Looks like the price went up $2 to $5.89. Weird. Still a great deal, tho.
