That may not be enough current to charge the BB; use one that is 750-1000 ma and it will charge properly. The camera charger will not fry the BB - it just may not charge it properly (or quickly enough).

I wouldn't buy one less than 850ma. 750 could be OK. I use chargers up to 1200ma and they are fine.
