7HTC Desire Android LogoFixed: HTC Desire charging slowly from car charger

I have an HTC Desire, which I frequently use as a Sat Nav system.  I have a car charger, but this is often barely able to keep pace with the power draw of the phone.  This seemed strange as the official HTC wall-wart charger that came with the phone can fully-charger the battery quite quickly.  I did some research and discovered that the HTC wall charger has the USB data pins (pins 2 and 3) shorted.  The phone detects this and increases the total power it draws whilst charging….
