    I'm genuinely curious - what is the technical reason non-OEM (micro) USB cables don't play well with the Pre? When hooking up to a computer, the connection keeps going on & off. In a car, the charging is worse than the OEM cord.

    The standard USB connection provided about 500mA and the Pre requires up near 1A to charge.

    I've been using a cheap USB cord to charge from the PC and a generic charger i picked up from Target on launch day and both were fine until about 2 days ago. Now the USB cord won't work at all and the car charger blinks on and off constantly and doesn't charge.

    It freaked me out thinking my Pre was broke but the Palm cord that came with it is still working perfectly.

    Does that mean if I can find 1A micro USB cords on eBay, they will work?
