Get a charge only cable, i.e. Naztech Micro USB Charging Cable. The phone will then see the charging source as an outlet and not a usb port.

Also, recommend the Miccus ChargeBlock USB Car Adapter CBCAWC-2A. Make sure you order the CBCAWC-2A as it's 2 amp model. With this charger and the above cable, or similiar cable, you can run everything simultaniously and it will fully charge up the battery.

still sad though that i have 2 2.1 amp dongles(a belkin and a kensington) that both charge my asus transformer & ipad 2 fast... but when i connect the rezound to either it registers as USB mode and charges slow as hell(loses charge if i actually use the rezound while charging).

anyone know if there's a 2.1 that will do AC mode?


i ended getting this rocketfish rapid charger from best buy but with the coil like cable & the standard micro connection it's a tad loose and occassionally stops charging depending on the phone's placement.
Yeah, I have one of the ipad 2.1 amp chargers for the car, and the bionic would charge at about 1.5 amps on it, but all of my HTC devices charge at only 500mah. I wish I had a 2.1 amp charger that would work for the zound. As its nice to be about to get in the car for 20 mins and have 30% or so battery after that.

I just read in another post that HTC USB deugging mode limits the charge to 500mah.

Thank you. FWIW, I have a 1.5 ma charger in my truck, turned off USB debugging for the 20 minute ride home from work. Nothing running, gained 10% charge. ( 75%-85%). Haven't done the math yet.

There is an easy way to check if you are on "fast charge". On your phone if navigate to:
Settings > About Phone > Battery it should say something like:

Not Charging or Charging A/C or Charging USB

Hopefully you are getting Charging A/C in the car. I'd love to try all this but I washed my Incredible S the other day.....
