Charger specific for Bold?
I just noticed something different with the Bold charger, although all previous model's chargers are 5.0V,they were all rated at 500mA output
The Bold however is 750mA.
At first, I didn't bother unwrapping the bold charger to charge my bold, using the old one I had...but since I"ve noticed it, I've switched to see if it charges faster...
Anyone have any experience on this?
Ok I am confirming that my bold is charging MUCH faster with its own charger (rated at 750mA) instead of my previous charger that I had for the 8800 (rated at 500mA)
but try not to reverse it, take the bold charger and charge other blackberries, prob could damage the phone/battery
There are two chargers that RIM sells. One is called the Travel Charger that actually comes with multiple attachments. This is the charger that is rated at 500 mA
The charger that ships with the Bold is rated at 750 mA, but this is not a new charger, RIM has been selling these as portable chargers as well. Portable in the sense that they are smaller and the prongs actually fold away.
I can confirm that both these chargers will work on any BlackBerry. The extra 250 mA will obviously increase the speed at which the battery charges, but hardly enough to damage any of the older units.
My Curve charger is rated at 5v with 0.7A.
