Default Charging Blackberry via USB cabled connected to Apple iPOD USB Power Adapter?

Please Login to Remove!

OK, sorry for the inundation of usb power/charging related question.

In the name of reducing "travel" weight, I was wondering if anyone has tried charging their blackberry via the iPod USB Power Adapter? What I'm hoping for is to carry this Power Adapter, and the 2 USB cables (iPod & Blackberry) versus the Power Adapter, 2 USB cables, and the Blackberry travel charger.

Just wondering if anyone has tried this previously, before I take the plunge (I will take the plunge, just want to hear if anyone has practical experience with this)

FYI,
iPod USB Adapter spec is:
Input: 100-240V 0.15A 50/60 Hz
Output: 5V - 1.0A

Blackberry Travel Charger spec is:
Input: 100-240V 0.15A 50/60 Hz
Output: 5V - 0.5A

The only difference is the amp rating.. Not being an electrical engineering guru or even a novice, any ideas just from this information?

Thanks!
