Default Alternate Charging Devices

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All:

I did a forum search regarding this issue and couldn't find anything.

I just bought two Motorola BT headset packages from Costco. They are rechargable headsets via a mini USB port. They each came with a car charger and a wall charger. Seems to me that all mini usb charging devices should produce the same output and I should be able to use these to charge my 8830 and my wifes 8130 in the car or the wall chargers as additional travel chargers. Is this a bad assumption? Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I would say the car charger would be the same but not all AC chargers have the same output. If lower output, they would take longer to charge or maybe not even bring your BB battery to 100%

I charged my Moto H600 headset with my BB charger, auto or wall charger. Never had a problem. It means I could carry one less charging cable.

if you look on the chargers, the output specs should be printed on them somewhere - unless they were made in china like the car charger shipped to me from Sprint. I would at least make sure they are close to what the BBs use.

Improper output could cause a bad day for you and your BBs.
