    Current is not pushed, it is drawn.

    The amperage rating on those chargers is not telling you how much current it will push into your device, it is telling you the max that it can supply. In all cases the Droid will draw what it needs, no more.

    In fact, having a charger with a higher amperage rating will be safer, provided that the voltage is within spec. And any charger designed to be compliant with the USB standard will be.
    That sounded edumucated...and logical. I guess I'm OK with the Zune charger?

    Yes, in my professional opinion, you are.

    However the standard caveats, as always, apply.

    Bear in mind that Verizon, or whoever you have your service with, will no doubt use any info they can to void your warranty, so you might not want to mention it to them...

    Yes, I agree.... a charger with a specified amp rating is its capability to provide. Plug your phone into the USB and it can only provide 500 ma. Now, try to use your phone at the same time and it will barely charge or increase battery time. Plug it into the motorola charger @ 850 ma and there is current left over to power the phone and charge it faster than USB. Now I am on my second Droid. 1St was defective. Would constantly bootloop. Replacement hasn't bootlooped yet. Anyhow I noticed certain non motorola chargers cause the screen to become jumpy while plugged in and I slide my finger on the screen say for ex. sliding the menu or an internet page. My wife's moto droid stock does the same thing. Once unplugged the condition clears. At the Verizon store all of their Droid phones are plugged into an unknown type of power source and (motorola only) the screens are jumpy also, until you unplug them. I don't know what causes such a phenomena but I am willing to bet those are not motorola chargers on those display phones. Just my 2 cents. In this economy should be worth a few bucks.
