    Picked up the Charge today. I have a number of AC chargers from my BB 9650.
    The Samsung charger says 5v and 1.0A
    The BB chargers say 5v and 700mA

    I'm guessing that the BB charger will just charge it a little slower being that it's 700mA

    But I wanted to ask here first so I don't do any damage to the Charge.

    I also have several BB car (cigarette lighter) chargers. I'm guessing they will be OK to use with the Charge too?

    Thanks, a search did not pop up the answer I'm looking for.

    I've been using my Blackberry Tour (9600) wall and car chargers with no problem, though like you noted they seem a tad bit slower.

    You will run into two problems with the 700ma chargers. 1. The phone will charge slower. 2. If you use a 700ma car charger, it might not supply power fast enough to keep the phone charged while you use navigation or some other features that require the phone screen to stay on.

    Other than that you should be okay.

    Yes, I use a B/B charger every day on my Charge. As long as its a micro USB you should be good to go. Just be careful when inserting the plug to the phone that you put it in the right side up some phone charging ports are upside down for some reason.

    Should work fine. 500 ma chargers probably don't have enough juice to even charge it at all, but 700 ma should give you something close to being plugged in to a USB port.
