I recently bought a 2.1 amp car charger (no name brand) which, when charging my phone causes some rather severe radio interference on a couple of radio stations I listen to regularly. It only causes interference when the phone is plugged in and charging.

I'm assuming this is because it's a cheap, no name unit, but I'm curious if I purchase a name brand, will the problem go away? Anyone ever hear of this kind of problem? Recommendations for a good replacement?

Thats crazy I guess the wiring is not shielded at all. I would probably quit using it. My car charger is a Griffin, no complaints charging multiple devices.
