    You are correct. Just as you use a trickle charger for a RC car that takes 14 hours to charge at low amperage or you can quick charge in 20 minutes with a standard charger. Works the same phone chargers

    A standard is a standard, and all standards have specifications of targets as well as tolerances in a range around those targets. As I said, the USB standard is applied in the case of laptops and desktops, as well as the USB data communications of these phones. This is why you can depend on the compatibility of your phone with those devices, even in the case of the USB charging standard.

    What you can't depend upon is that all manufacturers will remain compliant, especially those who only manufacture third party charging blocks. They don't use the USB logo so they don't have to. There is absolutely no incentive for them to do anything more than convert the voltage from AC to DC and step it down to the voltage needed. They don't win any points with consumers if they pay attention to quality or accuracy, or of they provide good filtering or protection circuitry especially if consumers are led to believe all USB power supplies are created equal.

    In fact there is far more incentive to cut corners, use cheap components, and build as cheaply as possible since we as consumers will demand the lowest price if we believe a charger is a charger is a charger. These things can be had for $3 (correction; $1!!) off some sites from overseas manufacturers. Here, I can't even buy the components let alone the board, jacks and case for that price.

    You believe what you want you believe but for MY RAZR, I will remain "Powered By Motorola"!

    Look up the Magnussen Moss Act.

    There's a number of ways that vendors can't refuse warranty claims. Most vendors know this and just count on people not understanding what their rights are under the law.

    I use a T-Mobile charger on my Razr while I'm at work. It makes my screen go bizerk when I touch it so I just never mess with it while it's charging. I guess I should stop using it.

    I think you have just elucidated the Cliff Notes summary of this rather long thread. clap.gif

    Fwiw, if you want a spare Motorola charger for work, here's one for $5.73 (free shipping).

    Please read the entire thread. I still contend that there's more to this than meets the eye. Large corporations and industries aren't stupid. They lobby Congress for exemptions all the time and quite often they are successful in what they seek. I've seen it firsthand where I work more than once. I'm not a lawyer, nor did I play one on TV, but things are never as simple as they seem. It's the fine print that gets little or no attention that you really need to pay attention to.

    "elucidated"? :blink: SallyC, watch your language! This is supposed to be a family-friendly forum! ;)

    We'll let it slide..... THIS time.

    The chargers should work. I have an LG charger I've had since my Dare, and it worked on my OG Droid, but not my GNex. It's like it doesn't reach in far enough to hit the right contacts.

    As an electrical engineer, this thread is surprising and a little funny. So much stress over such a minor issue!
