    At work everyone has an ipod/iphone so we commonly share the same Apple wall charger (I have an ipod.. it was a gift and is soon to be sold). Obviously Apple uses there proprietary charger as far as plugging into the device itself but the wall charger itself just uses a standard USB. My question is, can I connect the Incredible's USB cable to the Apple wall charger and successfully charge the phone without any repercussions? I'd like to avoid having to take my charger to work everyday (not allowed to connect devices to our highly monitored computers).

    Thanks!

    I would do it.
    I have seen in a couple posts similar questions and the verdict SEEMS to be that generic or other chargers with the same usb connector work fine. Search around for a bit because I haven't done this exactly, but I have used generic chargers on my Eris with no problem.

    I'm using a generic USB mains charger on my Desire... as long as the output is rated for 5V DC, 1A you should be fine.
