    This ships free with Amazon Prime. If you buy a couple hundred items from Amazon each year, it's worth the$90/yr to get free 2nd day shipping.

    ^ I'm guessing that if you buy a couple hundred items a year from Amazon that it wouldn't be too hard to find a way to bump the order to $25 for free shipping and avoid paying the $90/yr too.

    Let's see, $90/200 = 2nd day shipping for 45 cents each. Seems worth it to me. Not only that, if the item is shipped from (say Nevada for me), you get it next day.

    ^ I'm sure it does seem worth it in your situation, but most people won't be buying 200 items/yr from Amazon and also be unable to figure out how to reach $25

    #1, we are all well aware that you are proud that you bought the Amazon Prime and you're the smartest guy around here for doing so... You know, you could start an Amazon Prime Club and race each other to see who gets their stuff delivered the fastest and post your results here to find out who's the smartest of all of you... I image that there's not much else to do were you live at...

    Prime has been a great deal for me, at least until they start collecting sales tax for our state. Before I got prime I would keep a list of small items in my Wish List to add to orders to get it above $25. That was a royal pain.

    BTW, if #1 starts a Prime Club I would love to join.

    Most modern smartphones should charge fine off of 1A. Tablets may require 2A. My Droid X2 charges off 0.6, 0.8, or 1A but will not charge off 2A (says it's charging, but it's not). Just got a Galaxy S3 and it's charging fine off a 1A right now. I have yet to try it with a 2A charger.

    PSA: You should check the specs on your device(s) to see what kind of charger you should get.

    gila....
    You could have a 5 million amp power source and your phone should charge fine. Your load is the one pulling the current. It's the voltage that is "fed" to your load.
