    I looked on Amazon, most of the reviews say the wall charger doesn't work with the iPhone 4 (charging not supported by this accessory, or just doesn't charge).

    Or the USB cable doesn't charge from the PC, only syncs.

    So where can I get a charger + USB cable that works like the OEM apple one without paying $20 for it?

    Anywhere that sells one that meets the required specs. You can search/Google for them if you don't know what they are. I don't recall off the top of my head -- something like 10W/2A. I suggest Monoprice for such items if you don't want to pay the Apple premium.

    USB is 500mA on many PC's. 1000mA = 1A. Again, pay attention to the specs.

    1amp is what you are looking for. 2 amps is for iPad.

    The cheap Apple clone wall chargers-the little cube-sometimes work, sometimes don't. I have 3 and 1 of them will make the iphone act crazy while it's plugged in, the others are ok. Stick with a name brand-Belkin, Griffin if you don't want to gamble.

    BestBuy for OEM.

    Why gamble by saving $15-$20 on a charger that is charging a $600 device.

    Get the original charger or apple authorized chargers. Apple has a chip at the USB port to verified if the charger is authentic or not. I like good quality knock off stuff... but so far i just cannot find reliable knock-off chargers
