Awesome Deal for OEM Droid Charger,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)I purchased these from Bargain Cell for my Droid X. They are identical in every way including output ratings of 5.1v === 850mA. The part number for the cable is SKN5004A while the charger's is SPN5504A. These are exactly the same as what came in my Droid X box.
As any Droid X owner knows, the Droid X gulps battery power and you can't have enough chargers. I also happen to have a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) case for my DX. Unfortunately, the thicker cable ports on my long micro USB cables do not insert flush inside the micro USB port of my DX. However, the Motorola OEM cable ends are very thin and therefore plug in more easily and stay plugged in. This is why I only sought out chargers and cables that were Motorola OEM.
Keep in mind that the cable is short. This works well when charging from a counter top location but terrible if you're running the charger from the ground to the top of a desk. In that case, you can always use USB extension cables, which is what I'm doing with one of the 4 chargers I have. Lastly, Bargain Cell shipped the charger quickly and I received it on the same day as a charger I ordered at the same time from Amazon using 2-day shipping.

If the charger cord is to short, you can use a short AC extension cord, to plug in the charger.

Hey Phil. Definitely. There's more than one way to address the short cable. I like the USB extension cable because it's more sleek than an AC extension cord. Also, since the charging cable is so short, if you used an AC extension cable, the plug part would become suspended between my table top and the floor. The extra weight would likely pull the entire cable off of my desk.
Thanks for your feedback!

Hi Phil, nice review of the charger! For my purposes, using it when traveling, I'm happy that it has a short cord but just how short is the cord?

I ordered this based on the "Awesome Deal for OEM Droid Charger, September 15, 2010" comment and it is EXACTLY RIGHT! It is the ONLY charger that works with my Droid X. At the $3.14 price, I purchased a few (one for work; one for computer case and one extra "just in case") - you can't beat the price.
I just measured the wire - it is approximately 38 inches long.
