Going to wait for it to come and see if its better than my motorola charger
Got it today. I had WiFi on, full brightness, and GPS with Waze navigation running on my trip to work. I started off with 76% battery and i wanted to see if i will drop or raise. Needless to say, it raised without issue and rather quick. This one is a keeper.
Wish they included 2 cables for usb though so I can use one dedicated for the home charger

Any info on how close the car part is to the stock charger?

Yea pretty much what I meant thanks. I keep buying chargers and apparently I go ham on my phone because "fast charge" to some people means slowly dying to me.

Check out monoprice. It's a great website that sell quality stuff for cheap!

If you get time , please try out battery monitor widget and let us know the estimated positive value when its charging in car. On Sammy wall charger I get 1600-1800, but the 2a car chargers I've tried only register near 1000.

Thanks!

Been using this charger with navigation on, full brightness and bluetooth + wifi on. It charged without issue and held it there. Didn't show any signs of dying.

Somewhere I read that the Galaxy Tab 2.0 uses the same charger specs as our GN2. I found a Samsung OEM car Charger Samsung Galaxy Tab Detachable Car Charger with USB to 30 Pin Data Cable . It say's Samsung on the side at 5v 2000ma and puts the phone into AC charge mode.

Here are the results:

As you can see I have the about 8% for 10 minutes which seems decent to me.
I also ordered on of these to try ReVIVE Series DualFLUX DC to USB Rapid Car Charger

Any thoughts on both choices?
Note: I am NO expert by any means, thanks goes to those who are

i purchased this one.

it's very small and compact. took me 10 minutes total to tap it into the cigarette lighter of my car and have everything back in and tucked away. works like a charm and charges the device even while listening to pandora and using navigation.
