    If you plugged it into the EVO it's a Micro USB not a Mini...two different things. And yes there all the same. The only difference would be the charger itself. Some put out a different amperage.

    thats not true, some usb cords charge faster or slower, download current widget. also I have a usb cord with a blackberry logo and it doesnt charge my phone right, sometimes it charges sometimes it doesnt and sometimes it overheats my phone in the middle of the night

    That's because like Scorpdx said, the cord is the same, it's the charger part, the part that actually plugs in, that is the difference. The cord is just a cord with a micro-usb on one end and a standard usb on the other. The plug part determines the flow through the cord. For example you can use a micro-usb cord to replace the MINI-usb cord used with the Touch Pro II with the Touch Pro II's plug.

    FYI the charger that comes with the EVO is rated at 5v=1amp. Check the plug on your blackberry charger, I'm pretty sure it's not the same voltage and amps that the EVO's charger is.
