So, I know the Note 2 uses a 2 amp charger. Are there any good car chargers that can output in 2 amps? I currently am using a Motorola one, and I think it's just 1 amp. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I found a 2A car charger on the shelf at Wal-Mart for $8. Works fine for me.

If you have a 5 Below near you, they have a 2.1 amp dual for 5 bucks

The charger I bought for my Captivate charges it, I'll have to look at it to see what amperage it is.

I have this charger from my previous iPhone and it works like a charm! It is 2.1amp but I don't think it hurts the phone since it has smart technology to direct the power as needed!

If anyone thinksi should not use it please let me know

Thanks

The motorola one you have is still a beast when it comes to recharging. I have a few of them, one in each car and an additional one for business trips. While running gps, streaming music, and the screen on, my battery still recharges. I have other 2.1 mAh chargers, but always come back to the motorola one. Especially since they are around $5 on amazon.

Can you just paste a link on here so we can order?

That would be awesome.

Finally an Android phone that charges FAST. My Galaxy Nexus topped out around 800-950mA no matter how it was charged.

I have a few of those, however they charged suuuuuuuper slow on my OG note. I cant imagine they would charge any faster on the Note 2. Works great on my atrix tho
