The charger that comes with the Motorola Droid is a cool gadget. It has a wall plug on the end of a USB cable, so to transfer files to your computer from the Droid (and to charge from the computer too), one can simply remove the wall plug attachment, and you have the USB cable.
Only problem is, it’s only about 3 feet long.
The Driod uses the newer Micro-USB size
I decided I needed to get more cables, so I can at least have one on the main PC, and leave the original cable connected to the wall plug where it was, by the bed at night to charge.
On Saturday, when I was out, I went to look in Staples for another cable. I found them ok, but a six-foot cable was $24.95. I decided to take a look online.
That’s when I found these in the top picture. They were $1.69 each and they’re branded Motorola. OK, the shipping was another six bucks, but at just over ten bucks for four, it’s way less expensive than the solution from Staples, and I can use some of the bunch of existing cables with the mini USB plugs.
Another reason I always take a look online first. Heck, if I’d bought four cables from Staples it would have set me back just shy of $100, instead of just over $10! Way to go!
