Default Chargers for the curve

Please Login to Remove!

My boyfriend gave me his motorola phone charges, wall plug and car. They fit my curve and seem to recognize to charge. Is this safe?? The wall plug would just be an extra but I do need the car charger.

Thanks

Yes you should be fine!

Many users here use the moto chargers for their BB's

Yep. Same 5 volt output. I just picked up another car charger at my at&t store yesterday, and the sticky tag on it actually says "Mot/RIM", indicating it is for both. I had a razor before, so I'm set too!

Yeah...weird, but true. Funny thing, but the ability to use a charger I already had (and a car charger as well!!) from my Motorola V3 days, was one of the things I looked forward to when I made the decision to get another Curve.

I typically spend another $100+ on accessories each time I get a new phone...and for a phone junkie with a bad case of OCD like me...that's been pretty expensive!!

Default It's the power rating

I use my old razr power supply for my 8310 ... the reasin the BB supply won't charge the razr is that the razr draws more current ... and its power supply can handle that and the BB's lower demands.

I can do you one better than that.
An OEM Motorola car charger is $2.87 at amazon.com
Been using one like this for a month now with my 8320

I think its the other way around...

The Razr V3/V3I use the SPN5185/SPN5186 adapter and the output is rated at 5.0v 550mA.

My BB Pearl/8100, Pearl/8130, 8800, Curve 8320 all include the Folding Travel Charger with output rated at 5.0v 700mA.

But they both can charge via USB port which is rated at 5v 550mA.
