Which USB chargers work with BB 9900?

My 9900 will only charge from the computer USB or the provided wall charger, not from any other USB charging device that I've found.  My Torch would charge from nearly any other charger - iPad, generic car cigarette lighter usb charger, etc.  What are the specs or features of a compatible charger for this unit?  I don't want to buy a dedicated BB car charger; I want one that will charge all my devices.

Re: Which USB chargers work with BB 9900?

The original specs are for a 0.75A charger and you should stick to this norm as other voltage might damage your battery and/or device.


This message is probably triggered because you are using "unapproved" chargers.


I guess that most BB devices have this kind of verification for charging.


Hope this helps.
