    You need to assure two things...

    1) The output voltage should match exactly what you have on your original charger. Usually 5v.

    2) The output current must be the same OR greater than you have on your original charger. So if it is a 1A rating, meet or exceed that.

    Otherwise, as long as the plug fits ... You are good to go.

    Universal Chargers are always worse than the Original Chargers

    I suggest that you go and buy an Original charger , they perform better and are safer

    That's crap. It depends on the output specs of the charger being used.

    You would also want a quality charger. A bad charger could cause many issues, including in extreme cases, death.

    Quoted for most dramatic post of the day. :-)

    I would just add that looking at customer reviews on amazon would suffice to make sure you are getting a charger that doesn't fail often, etc.

    I would not buy one on a street corner...
