Evo Accessories?

I pre-ordered my Evo from Radioshack, like many others. Does anyone know what accessories are going to be available for the evo at RadioShack that I can purchase with the $20 gift card that i am getting because i pre-ordered?

I pre-ordered my Evo 4g at Best Buy so I could get the instant rebate and not deal with the mail-in garbage, I'm sure this was part of your motivation as well. I was wondering the same thing about the accesories since you never know what you're going to get when you order them online. I certainly would rather buy them in the store. If anyone knows what Radio Shack or Best Buy will have, we'd love to hear it.

My friend called and said they received a Shipment tonight, and will have another one tomorrow of Accessories for the Evo.  They are not permitted to put them on the floor until Friday, but said surprisingly they got accessories in for the launch of a Phone.

Here's what Sprint.com shows.

Accessories will be in the stores soon -- different options like phone covers, gels, shields, screen protectors, car kit, etc., etc..

Will the accessories be available tomorrow upon release of the Evo? I really want a silicon skin so i can protect the Evo the second it comes out of the box.

The rep at my local radio shack called to set up my appointment for tomorrow morning.  I asked about accessories and she said they had the phones but no accessories yet.  She thought that they would come in on the truck tomorrow (the 4th) at 6:00pm.  I wish this phone at least came with a micro usb car charger... Sprint wants $34 for theirs.  I already have about 10 mini usb and car chargers but no micro usb

Use a Mini to micro usb converter for all of your mini usb accessories

Can you use essentially any micro-USB car charger, including non-OEM ones? Any suggestions for good inexpensive ones. Sprint's $35 seems high.

Car charger, yes. Wall charger, no (explained below). I use an iGo car charger, so all I had to buy this time around was 2 new tips instead of a whole charger. Current price for the iGo car charger is $24.99 at Radio Shack plus half cost for your first tip.

Now onto my wall charger explanation. Allot of pre-orders at Best Buy received a BlueTooth ear piece (limited qty) which came with a MicroUSB wall charger which I thought was perfect as I could use the USB cable that came with the EVO at work on my PC and the wall charger at home. Unfortunately, I found out that the Wall Charger which has the same output voltage, only has 180mA which isn't enough to charge the EVO. So the amber LED lights briefly before turning back off, so it never actually charges. The EVO came with a wall charger piece that outputs 1A which appears to be what's needed to charge the EVO.
