    Will My Razr Car Charger Burn Out My BB??

    Advertisement



    The guy at T-Mobile told me that if I use the Razr car charger on my BB it will burn out the battery. Anyone know if this is true or was he just trying to sell me another charger??
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    It would be very advisable to look @ the small print-
    on the label on the back of each charger- BB and Razr and compare the two.

    I wouldn't mix the two if they are apples vs. oranges, if you know what I mean.

    He's trying to sell you another charger!

    USB = Universal Serial Bus = power levels and pin outs are the same for ALL devices. That's why it's called universal.

    I"ve had the same problems using a charger designed for a different handheld. I had used a generic USB cable charger and it never charged my battery. I thought my battery was bad but when I found my BB charger, it worked fine.
    Buck!!!
    Always somewhere else

    I agree with above. My cousin tried to charge a razor with BB charger...his phone was dead, and he was able to check voicemail and make calls, but it would not charge.

    The above is correct. Razr charger should work with most USB blackberries, but not the other way.
    To add to that, I tried a 'generic' car charger the said it was for blackberries and it kept blowing fuses in my car, however a brand name RIM charger worked great. So buyer-beware, sometimes it does pay to get OEM

    You have to check the Voltage and Amperage for both units. If they are the same you should be ok. If there is a difference you may want to buy the charger to be safe. I beleive they should be interchangable but not sure. GOOD LUCK!

    Well I can offer this: the blackberry wall wort is 750ma and the razr charger is 550ma, Thats why it works razr to berry, it will just charge a hair slower, but the other way is too much amperage for the razr. My girlfriend uses a razr charger someone threw at her at the cell phone store she works at as her bb charger, go figure.

    Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.
