Default Charger and charginq

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if anyone knew if it would be ok to use my car and travel chargers from my 8830 for my Curve 8310. Any ideas?

Also, I just picked up the Blackberry cradle charger (not the typical sync cradle, but a wall charger version) and love it. Is there any reason related to long-term battery life that I shouldn't keep it in the cradle at all times when I'm not using the device?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I use my MP3 Players car charger on my blackberry 8300 every now and then if I dont charge it overnight, and I have had no problems.

The only thing I did notice that one time I did have it charging and I was using the MP3 on the 8300 and I noticed a Buzzing type sound. When I disconnected the charger it stoped and when I put back in it did it again. Does anyone know anything about this? When my MP3 player is charging from the car charger I can not use it, is this the same thing?

As long as the fitting goes in without a hitch I don't imagine any problems doing so. I've even used an old Motorola charger that had the same fitting as my 8310 Curve when I was in a pinch and that worked without any problems...

I'm using a wall charger and a car charger from my old RAZR and I've not had a single problem.

YRMV,
