Yes I have always heard that for NEXTEL phones you want an official wall charger that is specficily designed for that phone because they have something special in them that lets them charge right and lets them stop charging once its complete. They say its bad to buy cheap ones from like Wal-Mart and places of that nature. Now I know that Wal-Mart sells Motorola chargers now. I would assume this goes for the same with RIM's Blackberry devices. I bought a car charger for mine from my Nextel Rep. store and it was like $39 bucks. But well worth it if its gonna help protect my blackberry from over-charge and things of that nature.
