    Re: anyone using motorolla V3 charger?

    ive used both, but never for extended periods of time, only when im running on fumes and not around my computer or my home charger,

    mostly in my car late at night...

    however i did notice that when i tried to use my home 8100 charger on my girlfriends L6 (which i think is the exact same thing a razor but without the flip) it didnt charge and instead just made the camera turn on and off untill i unplugged it.

    i have a hard time believeing that, that is what fried the pearl. its probably just a conicidence. I have a feeling there is a good percentage of pearl users who regularly use V3 chargers and that is the first ive ever heard about it harming one.

    i do know that the Moto chargers are slightly a higher amperage than the pearls, but i dont think its enough to cause any problems,

    give me 4 or 5 years to finish my electrical engineering degree and ill get back to you

    It might be possible! As u realize the BB charger is different from a Motorola charger the BB one has more power in it just like you cannot charge a Motorola phone with BB charger so the V3 charger wont give the enough power to charge it so might as well fry it!!!

    i have had my pearl for 7 months and i have never used the bb charger to charge my bb. i have always used the v3 charger, and it does charge the bb all the way. this is the same for my husbands pearl as well. we also use the motorola bluetooth charger to charge our phones and it also works great.

    This CAN happen. The V3 charger generates a higher wattage output than does the standard Blackberry charger.

    * The V3 charger will charge a Blackberry. It could fry the handheld, it may not.

    * The Blackberry charger will NOT charge a V3, it doesn't put out enough power.

    We have a Pearl and a RAZR. In both our cars, we have a third party car charger...if I'm not mistaken, it claimed to be for both the RAZR and the Pearl. I use it regularly with the Pearl and it seems to do the job just fine.

    I haven't tried the Motorola home (AC) charger with the Pearl though, and probably won't.

    Hi folks. We dont have a Razr but in a pinch I usually grab the usb cable from my wifes photo printer or the one for my Toshiba digital camera. I forget what the plug type is called (mini usb I think), but they are identical and both charge the phone up fully.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i would never use a charger not made for my BB! Not wooeth the risk of damage. Also my husband has been with tmo for 5 years suggests not using a car charger, it shortens the life of your batter, it is best used for emergencies only!

    I have a car charger for a V3 that I use when I am on the way home at night. My fiance found a car charger really cheap and used it on her Pearl for a long time and Curve since getting it without problems.

    Re: anyone using motorolla V3 charger?

    i use a v3 chome charger to charge my bb. but thats because i have a million v3 chargers and 2 bb home chargers. no real huge problems at all. sometime it feels like at least to me that whnei se the v3 charger my battery doesnt't last as long but that could be in my head. it won't fry the battery though. in regards to the car charger, i know it's different voltage. i dn't recommend using a v3 car charger w/a bb at all.
