Just a fyi...
The length and quality of the cable between the charger and your phone will dramatically change the charge rate.
The longer the cable the less charge rate
The thinner the wires the less charge rate.
And as you can imagine a combination of length and crapy wire =

A lot of the cables on eBay are terrible as they are made as cheap as possible.

I have found that the coiled (spring looking) ones are almost always good as you can't make a decent 'coil' with crapy wire.
Hope this helps.

Just a question to those that tried: How is gaming with such a Cable? Can the Evo 3D handle games on the big screen, or is it a sluggish mess? Also, how well do them cables cope when you put the phone under the strain of gaming? It runs through my battery pretty quickly when playing Dead Trigger or the like (and pretty much doesn't charge with the charger connected); how well do them MHL-Cables do at keeping the phone running? 219mA in 30 minutes seems rather poor.
