See this is exactly what's going to get you 100mA trickle charging. It's not a question of how much the charger can supply (some boast up to 1A), it's about how much the device is willing to draw. (For more info, I recommend reading the Openmoko forums, those guys are in the know!)

Hmm, I dunno. Ask it a tricky question? Like, 'if you were a smart charger, would you really be this cheap'? Probably best to take a close look at the specs or, in the case of eBay, to ask the seller.
