5.0 out of 5 stars car charger for HTC hero
Very good piece of kit, arrived quickly and on time. Has a standard mini USB plug which fits not only the HTC hero but anything else with this standard fitting, eg. garmin satnav units etc. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable
If you do a lot of driving (like I do as a professional driver) and you have a HTC Android-based phone, a car charger is indispensible - this device is what stopped mine from running completely out of juice on many occasions. Only criticism is that its cord could be a little bit longer, especially for when the lighter socket is too low, but it does the job pretty...

If you do a lot of driving (like I do as a professional driver) and you have a HTC Android-based phone, a car charger is indispensible - this device is what stopped mine from running completely out of juice on many occasions. Only criticism is that its cord could be a little bit longer, especially for when the lighter socket is too low, but it does the job pretty well.

Update April 2011: this device no longer works for me just a few months after I bought it. There is a light that still lights up when it's plugged in properly, but my phone no longer shows that it's charging, so obviously the power isn't getting through anymore. Have had to buy another charger (not this one). Clearly you get what you pay for. Not recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's cheap & it works, 29 Oct. 2010
This review is from: GreyMobiles Car Charger For HTC Hero, HTC Magic, HTC Touch HD, HTC Touch 3G, HTC Diamond, HTC Diamond 2, T-Mobile G2 Touch, HTC TyTN I & II (Electronics)
Yes the mini usb does work in the HTC. I had a similar charger for my camera so was able to test it before I bought it & it was fine.
When I first plugged it into the lighter socket it didn't work but after a couple of minutes of fiddling it worked. I can't see why you'd want to spend more money on the official HTC one but I can't speak for the longevity of this product yet.
One thing's for certain though, you'll need some form of charger if you want to use the excellent sat nav with this phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Standard mini USB DOES fit the HTC Hero, 8 Jan. 2010

although the charging lead that comes with the phone, and the hole in the hero, do not look like standard mini UBSs (the lead and the hole are asymmetric, sort of like a tiny sim card, being a rectangle with the corner cut off)
you CAN plug a normal mini USB lead in and it does work - I just tired it with my power monkey and the phone is happily charging. So I reckon you can buy this lead with confidence.

This product is not strong at all. After using it for just over a month, the charger fell apart.
When I contacted the seller and asked for a replacement, I did not get one.
Surely an item costing £2.49 does not need to be sent back if faulty.
It costs more to post back,( which you have to pay for) than to replace with a new one.

5.0 out of 5 stars HTC in-car charger, 16 Aug. 2010
This review is from: GreyMobiles Car Charger For HTC Hero, HTC Magic, HTC Touch HD, HTC Touch 3G, HTC Diamond, HTC Diamond 2, T-Mobile G2 Touch, HTC TyTN I & II (Electronics)
What is there to say? It's an in-car charger. You plug it in to the cigarette lighter or the aux point, connect it to your phone and it charges. However, unlike other in-car chargers i've had in the past, this one is of sturdy build at a good price.

Half price compare to Argos. You will not notice any difference. Only 4 stars as the first one is faulty. Replaced by vendor with no problem.
