Default Battery charger for car

I haven't a battery charger for my Atrix to use when I'm driving, but I have one for a TomTom navigator, so I decided to try to use it for my phone, but it didn't work.
The battery icon on the phone did show same as when I charge it, but it was not charging, it went on losing power until it shut down.
I've tried the charger with the TomTom and it works.

I took a look to the output values both on the phone charger and the TomTom charger:
- TomTom charger -> 5V 1.2A
- Phone charger -> 5.1V 850mA

Why the TomTom charger didn't work with the Atrix?

I want to buy a charger for car which I can use to charge my Atrix, but I only find generic chargers, how can I be sure that they will work?

Atrix 4G - CM10.1 kernel 3.1
