There are actually many good reasons to use another brand of charger. Probably most commonly, because you have multiple electronic items that charge from miniUSB, and you're smart enough to realize that USB is an industry specification, and therefore there's no good reason to carry around and use multiple chargers - and you're not risking your BB at all.

The only reason any miniUSB charger wouldn't charge your BB is if it doesn't supply enough power. Unless its defective, there's no way it can hurt your BB. And there's about as much chance of a defective BB branded one as there is with any other brand.
