Exclamation help please!! bb storm not charging on emergency chargers :S

Please Login to Remove!

hey, my storm charges fine when plugged into the computer usb and from the mains electrics, but im camping in a week so i was looking at solar and back up chargers and stuff of which i already have 2, a wind up charger and a battery pack, both you just plug them into the phone using adapters to the micro usb slot and they should start charging (you obviously have to start winding the wind up charger to get it charging first) but when i plug either of them in what happens is the charge symbol comes up for about 10 secs them dissappears, (you can feel its not charging as well when you use the wind up charger as it gets easier to turn), i dont know why this is happening and im worried cos i cant be without my bb for a week :S

It appears as if your chargers are trickle chargers, and unable to produce the correct voltage and/or amps. If they have variable volt/amp settings, try the lowest setting first, moving to higher settings until you find the proper one.

If they are not variable, you will need a compatible charger.

You might need to take extra batteries with you.
