    I have a Motorola H500 and it charges off the same cable as the BlackBerry. The cable is a just a simple USB to mini USB.

    In my experiance you can use any stanard mini usb cable to charge a BlackBerry. If you want to charge it via the USB port on your computer you need to have Desktop Manager (or the BB drivers) installed to charge the phone.

    Standard Motorola USB chargers have worked fine for me on charging my 8700c. Personally, I actually don't use any chargers. I just plug mine into my PC at home and work through the data cable to charge it and my H500 headset. One less item to plug into my surge bar.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    The USB charger isn't a standard protocol. Yes the connection is the same, but the voltage is different. For instance, the BB car charger didn't charge my Moto Q, but my Q charger works fine on my BB.

    I believe the voltages are different. The Motorola USB requires more power than the BB USB charger supplies...but somehow the lower voltage Motorola USB chargers work fine with the BB.

    I just know I use my Moto USB charger with my BB, lower voltage or not it works.
