    So I recently purchased a droid 1 from Ebay to hold off until my upgrade in August. Everything is working great so far with no issues, but I do have a question on charging.

    When I bought the droid it did not come with the standard wall charger and instead came with a usb cord only. So my only option was to use my laptop.
    However I remembered that I had an ipod wall charger and have been using that for the past few days to charge my droid.

    I was just wondering whether or not it is ok to charge my droid via an ipod wall charger. Or will this lead to issues with my battery in the future? I would rather ask now then find out later that it did and my battery would be fried.


    Thanks for your time, and I hope this is an ok forum to post in lol. Still new :).

    Edit: it is an order wall charger and not the newer version if that makes any difference.

    I don't think it will, but they sell oem replacement batteries on Amazon for around $5, if it does fry.
