Using Motorola chargers for Blackberry devices...

So I have the Storm 9530 and had a few extra chargers from past phones. Connector works, but are the power limits ok, or are there any issues I should know about?


My storm charger is 700mA, however one of the extra chargers is 550mA, and the other is 850mA. I am guessing they arnt too far off, but just figured Id ask before pluging them in...

Re: Using Motorola chargers for Blackberry devices...

I used my buddies to charge a 8310 this weekend.


The device will only draw a certain amount of current.

Having a supplt with extra will not hurt it.


A supply with not enough current will take longer to charge up.

Re: Using Motorola chargers for Blackberry devices...

I have a motorola charger (it was not a RAZR but a RIZE Z3, the mobile phone of the bad guys in US action movies).


It is slow to charge a Curve 8310 but very fast to charge a Storm 9530.
