Could I have blown the charging ports on two phones?
So I plugged in a cheap Micro USB charger I bought into two Androind phones that I have and I think it may have blown them out. The phones would not function with the charger at all so I threw the charger out.
However, I then tried those phones with the other chargers I have and they seemingly stopped working with them as well! I knew these chargers worked because I have had them for months.
Is it possible that I could have messed up two phones just by plugging them into a shady Micro USB charger? These phones now refuse to charge whatsoever with any of the chargers I have.

Not only is it possible, it is likely. There is a reason why manufacturers only approve certain aftermarket accessory manufacturers. If you are not going to use the OEM chargers i would highly recommend that you purchase one from the Android Central store. You will be much happier in the long run.
