    Yep. You should beable to use ANY micro USB charger for the Maxx. That is the type all the Droids have had. So you're good.

    Well I had a battery failure with my first maxx. No idea what caused it but I was using a different charger so I am a little paranoid now about what charger I use.

    I don't get why people don't want to use the charger they get with their maxx. People are constantly asking this question. What's the big deal to swap out the chargers?

    That would be because in addition to being at your house you also should have one at work if you need to charge there also. In some cases more than one charger is needed.

    Not all chargers are equal when charging the Maxx. LG thin wire chargers get hot because of the amp draw the Maxx is using thus it shouldn't be used. If you use chargers that are Moto and have the separate usb cable that plug into the head that is in the wall socket you will be fine. They are of much higher amp draw and supply better power for charging.

    And the charger that I got in the box with my maxx, will accept two USB cables.... so it can charge two phones.

    I have never had an issue using different micro usb chargers. One of the reasons manufactors agreed to all use one form of charging was to cut down on buying chargers, mainly car chargers everytime you buy a different phone. I been using the same car charger for 3 phones so far. No issues.

    Before using ANY charger, make sure that it will work on your new phone. Check the information found on the inside of the plug and make sure the numbers are the same. If they are less, or more, you can end up damaging your battery and since this battery canNOT be replaced easily, I would make SURE that the charger will not damage your phone.

    I would love to find any kind of proof that manufacturers were concerned that we as consumers were going to be forced to buy another charger with our new phone. Frankly, if the phone didn't come with a charger and the instructions said "You can use ANY USB charger from ANY manufacturer", then I would buy your implication as fact.

    Also, to suggest that competing phone manufacturers would "agree" to do something in unison to allow their competitors' chargers to work with their phones or vice versa is as hard to believe at best.

    The reasons they individually (not agreeing together) decided to use the MicroUSB standard are because they are more durable and have a much higher connect/disconnect lifespan than the former standard, MiniUSB, and also because they give the phone immediate and high speed access to data on PCs. There was no corroboration between manufacturers of phones to make their phones and/or chargers compatible with their competitors' phones/chargers, and in fact they explicitly recommend against that exact action.

    Well here it is...believe it or not. And this went for the United States as well. and i never said they were all concerned. I said they all came to an agreement. . This link is the closest i can find that was argued when the charging port on phones were standardized. Apple was one of the only major players that didnt go through with it. . Standardized mobile phone charger coming to EU—iPhone, too This is not new news. Found another link. http://hothardware.com/News/Phones-Chargers-To-Be-Standardized-In-2011/

    I don't know about standardization or anything else but what I can tell you is that when I use my wife's charger from her d3 my x2 goes nuts, and vice/versa and when I plugged my x2 into the charger for my brothers charger corts his TB my x2 just said!" Screw you " and shut down, and the charger from my old bb tour s brewed up the port on my first x2 so I would say make sure that it is in fact compatable with the phone, you shelled out good money for that phone and sometimes warrenty and insurance wont cover stupid, kinda like driving your vehicle on the ice, as soon as you do your insurance is void.

    Yes, glad you found this info. Without doubt, manufacturers made lots of $$ having a unique charger for their phone and had no interest in making then universal. It was the threat of legislation for the purpose of reducing waste that led to the universalization of phone chargers. With that said, my experience has been that phone manufacturers chargers (lg, Samsung, motorola, HTC) have worked fine for all our phones (we actually have each of those phones and interchange our chargers often) whereas I have had problems with cheap generic chargers.

    Well, looks like I have some egg on my face...

    I suppose that we can thank concern for the ecology for the advancement in conservation. This is a good thing but it wasn't started by the companies themselves, and wasn't because they were concerned for the consumer.
    It was started by either activists or politicians/public officials who took up the cause.

    Sure, the manufacturers signed a "voluntary agreement", though not because they wanted to, but because they were pressured or embarrassed into doing so.

    Still, the most important parts of both of the write-ups, is that it hasn't happened yet, and according to the second article we could start to see these newly conforming design phones "early next year". Fortunately for me and the egg on my face, it further validates my claims that the phones we have now and the chargers they use now are not entirely interchangeable and that doing so, at least for phones and chargers manufactured prior to and for the remainder of this year is still a risk.

    Actually, most phone manufacturers began using the universal charging standard in 2009-2011 and committed to complying with that standard by 2012, most likely driven by laws in China and Korea requiring it. Plenty of information regarding the decisions and rationale for the standards. This is just one quick source...

    I've actually read all of this and the other ones referenced earlier, but again there is no evidence that this standard had been implemented on devices manufactured to date for distribution in the US. As the second article in the earlier post reads, we can expect these newly conforming devices to begin appearing early next year. This does not mean that any older device which already uses the micro-USB to standard USB-A connector cable (which goes back a while) somehow mysteriously and suddenly becomes compatible with that new universal charger standard. That's like saying that AA batteries which are not meant to be recharged suddenly became rechargeable simply because they fit into the chargers which were designed to charge the new AA Nickel Cadmium and then the later Nickel Metal-Hydride batteries.

    And to put a wrap on this discussion, if these phones we have now did confirm to this new (but yet to be implemented) standard in the US, their documentation would indicate so and would not instead say the complete opposite as they do now.

    Look, I can admit when I am wrong, and did so by the mention of egg on my face regarding disbelief that such a change could or is coming, but let's not take information relating to an ensuing change in the industry and use it to justify applying the specifications of those ensuing changes to equipment manufactured before that standard has been implemented. That's just crazy.
