Compatible Charges for the Touch Pro

Did a little searching around and didn't see an answer to the question can other brand chargers be used with the TP.

I have three Motorola USB chargers (for a Q and Razr), along with a car charger and was wondering if they would be compatible with the Touch Pro.

Specs for the TP wall charger are Input 100-200, 0.2A 50-60Hz, Output 5v +/- 1A

Specs for the Q wall charger are Input 100-200, 1.5A 50-60Hz, Output 5v +/- .850mA

Doesn't make sense to go out an buy a new spare charger if this will work. Same question for a car charger.

Re: Compatible Charges for the Touch Pro

I was in the same situation as you and I've been using my existing Motorola car charger and travel chargers with my TP without any issues whatsoever. Now I'm continuing to experiment with how to make those charges last longer!

Re: Compatible Charges for the Touch Pro

If it is a USB charger, it will work. Look up USB specs if you want to make sure a charger you have will work...

Re: Compatible Charges for the Touch Pro

Sprint sells car chargers for the Touch Pro, but they're more than they're worth, IMO ($25 I believe).

Thanks - I saw a BB car charger last night at Target for less than $10 - it had a mini-usb (and 2 others) plug, but I didn't know if I needed to worry about voltages or amps (or whatever it is that I didn't know if it made a difference )

Re: Compatible Charges for the Touch Pro

As said many times before, mini usb cables will charge the Pro. You probably won't need to worry about checking the voltage because there is a tiny chance you will be using a dangerous voltage to charge your phone.

Re: Compatible Charges for the Touch Pro

USB usually supplies 5V at the least. The stock HTC wall charger supplies 1A, charging by PC and most car usb adapters usually supplies 500mA (0.5A) which is why it takes longer. HTC *does* make a 2A charger that people say works fine also.
