Default A Good case and car charger?

Hi all,

I recently got myself a new Fuze v2 8GB, and I am really enjoying it. However, there are a couple of things missing. One, I am looking for a very reliable case that will protect the player, I'd prefer no plastic cases as they can break easier than silicone cases. I am also looking for a good car charger due to short battery life. Are there any particular cases and car chargers that you would recommend?

Thanks!

The wall charger included is good to have too....because you can hook up any player to it, even your ZuneHD. Doing it that way with the Fuze will allow the screen to shut down quickly, which should let the player charge faster.

That sounds pretty nice...its good to have a charger that will work with my ZuneHD too , considering the ones made for the ZuneHD cost like fifty bucks

Same thing as the other one, but significantly cheaper:

Are those cheap chargers any good? I don't want to risk burning out a player because the alternator on my car kicked out a voltage spike and the 3 dollar charger didn't have a proper 5v regulator in it.

I've had good luck with the wall units the last couple of years, but I haven't used any of the car chargers (no car).

I haven't been able to do a full charge with the car or wall charger yet, but so far I have had no issues with them. They seem pretty good quality for the price, and the case is working great, I highly recommend this package.
