    It's definitely your car. The sound is perfect in my car while charging and using the AUX cable.

    If you want it to fit the touchstone, you need to shave the top of the plug a little bit. Ijust a razor blade to take 1mm off of the top and it works great.

    For only $0.83 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Car Charger (Cigarette Lighter) to USB Female Converter - Black | Car Charger Accessories

    If anyone tries an adapter like the one from monoprice and finds that it works with the Pre. Please let me know. Thanks!

    Yes s Sprint sold me the .85a version and it works great. I can run Sprint Nav while listening to Pandora and it still charges my Pre!

    Still, even so, I wouldn't trust Sprint knowing how little they know about anything. Hell, you heard about my horror story about a technician and my phone, right?

    Is there a 1.0A Sprint car charger? Are all the coiled ones with the sprint logo .85A chargers/

    I found the Sprint Palm Car Charger on eBay for like 10 bucks w/ shpng. ($31.99 in store)

    NEW OEM Sprint Palm Pre CAR CHARGER Micro USB - eBay (item 260426701858 end time Jul-10-09 15:42:41 PDT)

    Would you trust these? Any cautions about buying these types of things from eBay? Price is cheap enough to take the risk? Legit?

    It does say pre on the car charger on the little sticker. I also bought one from ebay and it did not work because it did not say pre one the charger.

    The one you mentioned in yout thread is the only VPC/VPA being sold in Sprint corporate retail stores for use with the Palm Pre. This VPC/VPA is also compatible with the Palm Pro as well as the Palm 800w.

    Bought one off ebay and it does not work. Not sure this is the same one you found.This is a sprint model with the light oval on top. Light goes on nothing happens with phone. tried several outlets and several cars no luck.

    my sprint car charger just arrived from ebay. Weird tho, they sent me 2 chargers, (in 2 separate boxes) I checked and I only got charged for 1. Their mistake I guess. I'm going outside in a little to check them out. any info people would like to know about them?

    Let us know how they work boston_ant. I got one from the same seller and it definitely IS NOT THE SAME AS THE ONE THE SPRINT STORES SELL. It's a different part number but apparently the same voltage. Mine worked for about 10 seconds and is now dead!

    ok so i went out to test them on just the phone, (not the touchstone) initially just to make sure they're weren't defective to begin with. First charger lit up and charged the Pre fine. Second one not so much. The charger lit up, but there was no reaction from the phone. So I took that one out and put the first one back in, now the first one isn't working either. Checked both chargers over and over and got nothing. Don't know what to make of this. Pre's battery was at 5%, but that shouldn't matter. Obviously its not my car because it initially charged one of the chargers. Are these things junk or is there something I'm missing? They are the Sprint car chargers for Palm... Input: DC 11.5-16V Output: 5V/0.85A

    Edit: just saw your post Moe... yeah, I'd say the same thing happened to mine, worked for a sec then nothing. So did you go ahead and buy the one from the actual sprint store? I really feel like driving over to cambridge, (15 mins) and showing up at that guys door... <:{

    Yes, I bought one from the sprint store but I am returning it. I got the oem palm car charger from best buy this afternoon and it works like a charm. $29.99 but its worth it and it seems to be very good quality. If your gonna run a touchstone, I would stick with the palm car charger as the sprint one is at its limits running the ts. I even have my doubts about the sprint charger lasting if charging the phone via usb port.
