Micro USB Charger

Can I use any micro USB charger for this phone? Are all USB based chargers standardized to send the same voltage? If I already have a cigarette lighter adapter (motorola I think) with a USB power port on it, can I just use a micro USB cord with it?

Re: Micro USB Charger

Micro USB is a standard, so the pinouts and voltages are identical. Your charger may not be able to provide the same charge (mAh) as the Arrive's, but it won't hurt to try.

Re: Micro USB Charger

My Wife has an old Samsung Exclaim micro USB wall charger and I am curious if it will charge my HTC Arrive. Below are the specifications of both:

Samsung Exclaim Wall Charger:
Model: ATADU10JBE
Input: 100-240VAC 50-60 Hz 0.15A
Output: 5V ------ 0.7A

HTC Arrive Wall Charger:
Model: TC U250
Input: 100-240V~200mA 50-60Hz
Output: 5V --------- 1A

The reason I'm asking is that I left my USB cable at work and cannot charge my phone and the battery is nearly dead. I don't want to fry my phone so I figured I'd ask the experts.

Thankfully you don't have a Focus. Those guys have to sleep with one eye open now. JK, Reminded me of an article a couple weeks back.
Man’s Samsung Focus gets hot and bothered as it burns charger port, melts cable | BGR

Re: Micro USB Charger

Well it worked and I'm still alive, not burned to a crisp! Thanks for the confirmation, it's good to have a free wall charger availible at home so I can leave my OEM USB charger at work.

Wirelessly posted (Htc Arrive: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows Phone OS 7.0; Trident/3.1; IEMobile/7.0; HTC; T7575))

I used BlackBerry USB cables and wall chargers. I believe them to be of high quality and have the longest cords.
