    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/
