    hi all,

    quick q, I live in australia and just got the hero via expansys - but it came with non-compliant australian charger

    expansys sent a travel adapter which is cool

    however since hero charges via usb could i also use the iphone usb charger rather than dishing from cash to pick up an australian compliant charger?

    Any USB plug adaptor will work - USB is a standard of I believe 500mA and any one will charge the phone via USB. So yes use the iphone one:) it should work fine.

    Regards

    It should work, the USB cable shouldn't be able to provide more current than is safe for your phone, but if I were you I would buy the correct connector for you HTC charger. They shouldn't be that expensive, and I would guess your warrenty would be void if you use the wrong charger (assuming they find out of course)
