Default BlackBerry Curve Charger

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I can't seem to find my BB Charger for the life of me, however I still have the charger from my Razr, and it seems to fit fine with the BB. Will it hurt anything to use the Razr charger?

I wouldn't, unless you knew the voltage was the same. You would be better off using a USB cable and charging it off your computer.

Ok, thanks for the heads up Argon

Heres another question maybe you or someone else could help me with. The Charger that came with my Blackberry Curve 8310 has a voltage of input:110V-240V output: 5V-12V, and the charger does not say Blackberry on it at all, but I have been using it to charge up my curve for the past week. However I realized I still have my charger from my Pearl 8100, which it does say BlackBerry on it, only it has Input: 100-240v Output-5v=0.75a. I take it I cannot use the actual Blackberry Charger for my Curve right?

FYI: We were told by RIM USB Charging is also apt to not give you the same battery performance as the wall charger. It can show 100% battery but can actually affect battery performance with prolonged use.

I've been known to use my old Razr chargers in a pinch - however - I would only do so if it's an emergency and only at your own (the phone's) risk. The input is virtually the same on both (100-240V, 50/60 Hz) but the output varies slightly, 5 vdc 550ma on the Razr (moto) charger and 5 vdc .7ma on the BB.

When in doubt always check to specs. Try to find your BB charger or just buy a new one. You'll find both the charger and the phone get hot to the touch when you use a mismatched charger. Not a good long-term thing.
