    As long as it's the official HTC charger then no, you can't over-charge.
    Cheap eBay ones may cause over-charge, though.

    Your phone will charge until the green light shows, then it will keep charging for a little longer and eventually stop on its own, even if the charger is still connected. This it to stop overheating when the battery is fully charged.

    Hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread for a similar question: Is it safe to use a cheap $5 ebay battery for the desire/nexus one or can it damage your phone?

    Thanks!

    It never ceases to amaze me that people would risk killing their expensive phone for the sake of saving 10 pounds/euros/dollars/[insert currency of choice] <shakes head in dismay>

    That's a no from me then :D

    Personally, I would steer clear of cheap batteries, I wouldn't trust them. There's a reason why they only cost $5.
