Looking for clarification!
No. Early ones use a MINI USB interface:
Most now use a MICRO USB interface:
I have a TON of both, so I keep several of these handy:
They are only a few bucks on Amazon.
Hope this helps!
I am talking about the wall charger.
Well, they either come attached to the cable or they are just wall to USB dongles that use a standard USB cable to plug into your phone.
ANY power outlet to USB changer will work.
If you are talking about the part that the usb plug goes in then into the wall then yeah. I have one from an evo and fuze that i plug my usb cord into.
You changed your photos after I posted my second post. LOL
Most use micro usb interface? How about all of the american made HTC phones within the last 5 years? Do they all use the same exact wall charger from the box?
So much stuff these days uses Micro-USB, so its easy to find a charger that will work. I have several from precious phones.
If I recollect correctly, micro-usb has been established as the standard for all phones manufactured from 2011 forward. I believe the Iphone is the only exception.
Actually Samsung has used some proprietary ports in the past and still do on things like the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Also I believe HTC used one on the Eris http://androidforums.com/eris-accessories/287777-different-eris-charging-port-not-mini-usb.html. The iPhone is probably just the most well known. The good thing about the iPhone port is even though it's proprietary if you're around 10 people at least half are likely to have the same port on their phone and may have a charger you can borrow.
My Samsung Epic and my hubby's Blackberry both use the micro usb. (just to clarify the samsung mention above)
So does that mean any micro USB charger will work fine regardless of manufacturer?
Should, I use a Motorola charger an a samsung along with my HTC
I have issues with some car chargers, but not wall chargers. I *only* have problems if I use a charger that my hubby uses regularly for his Blackberry. He can use mine occasionally and I won't have a problem. But if I try to use the ones he uses regularly, it has a hard time keeping the connection to keep charging.
I did steal his data cable since it's a BEAST.
