IF. YOU. EVER FORGET YOUR. CHARGER.....

Went away for the weekend and for the first time I forgot to take the charging cord for my iPad and my iPhone.

 

Of course, the batteries would go down to zip!   Stopped at a Verizon Wireless store:  $40 !  No way said DH.  So, we drove to the other end of the shopping center and he said to check Ross......

 

To my amazement, just as he said there was a wall of them by the men‘s Department.  My charger cost $ 7 there !!!

Im pretty sure the last place one should look is at a Verizon or ATT store. I got my chargers at WalMart and paid very little for them.

I need to get a car charger for my Samsung Android.   Are such things universal or do I have to get one that works specifically for my model?  I feel foolish asking, but did a quick Google search to no avail.

Better yet ......  if your device came with a car charger, put it in a little ziploc bag and leave it in your glove compartment!   Woman LOL

Just be careful with the cheapy chargers.  Sometimes they actually can damage your phone.

My daughter has a car charger which she bought at Walmart.  It is a universal charger and unless your instructions specifically says you have to use a charger for your model, you should be safe buying any kind.

I only use an Apple brand charger, per Apple’s suggestion. Apple branded anything is pretty much the same price every where. The cube is $20 and the cable is $20. Verizon’s pricing was in line.
