    AFAIK, the Droid wall charger actually uses a short usb cable to connect between the charger and the phone. You can just that cord. It will work for sure.

    It probably will. There have been some issues in the past where Droids have gone crazy after/while being charged with a non-original charger and even a non-original usb cord. My original droid is not that picky and I have been able to use other usb cables (even one that is 15 feet long). It does seem to be a hit or miss situation though. I'm sure it is much more likely that a non-native cable will work than a non-native charger though.

    The Droid uses a micro usb connector, the BB uses a mini connector (unless they changed recently) so the cables are not compatible.
    OG Droid retired but serving as a wireless tablet now and then.

    unless you get a mini to micro adapter. I bought a cheap rocketfish mini usb cable from Best Buy that came with a micro adapter. Works just fine.

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Sure. Just check the number of mA it supplies. If it's less than what the charger that came with your Droid 2 supplies then it will charge slower.

    There are a number of different BB models. Some use mini, some use micro.

    The problem is that they interfere with the capacitive screen.
