    I use any 5V micro USB adapters, have not seen any issues. I usually have found that the desk cradle tends to charge faster and it comes with a spare standard battery... Very nice for those power hungry days...

    Probably as long as it's a smart charger. The OEM charger seems to output 700mA. I'm using a third party 800mA charger and I've even charged it with a 1000mA charger without problem. Make sure you find something that's 700 or higher so the charging time isn't so long.
