I didn't realize it's safe to use that charger with the 8130.
I'm no electrician, and I have used an old Motorola charger with no apparent harm. But there is a technical difference. Blackberry uses an IC (intelligent chip) so that the battery isn't over charged...Motorola uses some kind of short circuitry mechanism and claims not to overcharge...I suspect that over time, the Motorola charger may cause shorter battery life, but I have been unable to find any data to prove that. All I know is that they don't use the intelligent chip, and something tells me Blackberry wouldn't bother with that if it wasn't better. You can find OEMs online for around $10. I think I got one from Elite Electronics but I can't find my receipt to figure out if it was via Amazon or Ebay. I just googled the model number of my OEM charger to find options.
