If you've ever seen those "My Droide is Going Crazy" threads frequently it does this because it's on an non stock chargers. Don't ask me how or why but the Droids start calling and texting people on its own. Very weird.
Now I use my Blackberry Storms charger on my Droid. Specs are close but not exactly the same as my Droids charger. I've never had any problems.
Anyway common sense tells you if you don't see the same specs it's probably not a good idea. Voltage and amps should be the same as your Droids charger.
FYI, Best Buy is have a sale on chargers now, and I got a car charger AND an extra wall charger for $29.99 yesterday! No detachable cord, so you cant transfer data via usb, but still a pretty good deal.
Its funny but this is one of the first things I tried when I got my Droid 2, just to save money on car charger. I have tried my Blackberry Tour car charger, home charger & usb which was already hooked up to my pc.
The car charger hooked up during an hour long ride to work, and hour long ride home did not change the battery % at all. It actually took some moving it to get it to show the lightning bolt indicator on the phone. Home charger was same way, although it did charge, but only to 70% overnight. USB cable produced same as car charger.
Headed to Verizon today to get a bundle with car charger & screen protectors. The battery life is horrific on this phone, need a charger at home, work and car, but DAMNNNN i love this phone!
No any charger will not work, hook said it best in his post, sure it looks as if its charging but motorolas are notorious for only working with correct chargers. It will look like its charging but try to use it, ur touchscreen will not work right. It will not charge the battery either. Use only moto chargers. Btw u can accually mess up the battery permanently by using incorrect voltages and amps
Someone might tell you different, but I say a USB is a USB cable is a USB cable. The only difference is the LENGTH of it. Here's the thing, you want the shortest USB cable you can find because the energy dissipates as it traverses the wire. Instead of getting a longer USB cable, just get a regular electrical EXTENSION CORD. Trust me on this one!
