    plain and simple can you use blackberry micro usb chargers for charging your droid w/o doing any damage to the battery or anything else? Thank you for your responses.

    umm, if its OLD blackberry accessories then you may be out of luck. Older BB's used mini-usb. Newer BB's (and most phones now) share the new Micro-Usb with the droid.

    I was using my old Storm 1 charger, but someone pointed out an issue. I checked it out and they were right.

    Try touching the screen when plugged into BB wall charger, it doesn't work right at all. I am not sure if there's any harm that could be done though. I would, however avoid actually using the phone while connected to BB charger.

    Just my .02

    It's bizarre...makes no sense to me but it's true.

    The bb charger still has more MA than the USB chargers so it's not just that part. Weird.

    I use my storm 1 charger at work all day and I've never had a problem. I have to keep it charged since I use my droid as my main music player.
