Blackberry Torch 9860 Charging Issue

Works fine on mains charger - though batter life is not brilliant BUT when I plug this into the car charger that I use to charge my original b/berry torch (which charges fine) the new torch fails to charge & comes up with a message that there is an issue with the charger!

It works fine on the old torch, so why wont it charge the new one

Re: Blackberry Torch 9860 Charging Issue

Some chargers are not powered to the amount required by the handheld device. Perhaps your DC charger is not.

Re: Blackberry Torch 9860 Charging Issue

What's the difference in power required by the old torch v the new 9860?

Re: Blackberry Torch 9860 Charging Issue

I really don't know off-hand.

Is the charger an OEM charger?

 

I know in the past I have purchased some non-OEM DC chargers which would not charge my BlackBerry... even older ones like my 8310 and 9000.
