    Use 7290 Car and Wall Charger with 8700c?

    Advertisement



    Can I use my 7290 car charger and my 7290 wall charger to charge my new 8700c?

    Is there any possibility of damaging the battery - or not fully charging it?

    Thanks,
    Martin

    You can use if both charges are original RIM equipment.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Remember: the U in USB denotes "universal".

    The voltage levels on USB are the same regardless of which manufacturer made it. Obviously, don't trust generic cheap stuff.

    I've been using the moto charger for the razr for my BB as well. It's all the same to the battery.

    The Moto Razr will not charge my 7100i, but the Moto H700 Bluetooth Headset's charger will, and both of them are mini usb. Also both of my chargers, 7100i and H700 will charge all other Nextel BlackBerry's.

    There is something abou the 8700 and 7100 series batteries and maybe some others that causes some USB chargers not to work with the BB Device. Has to do with determining when to back down from the higher current charging to low current trickle charging. Some chargers can't detect that the BBs need the Higher current for charging. As to the 7290 charger working with the 8700, Yes it will work, even if the Amp Rating on the two I have is different. My 7290 has a max rating of 500 mA and my 8700 is 750 mA.

    Hope this Helps
