    Hi,
    Feeling good to be part of ever growing community of Androiders! I have recently picked up a HTC Desire :) but I lost the charger because of which I am not able to use my Desire :( completely. When I am trying to charge through USB port of my laptop it is taking long time..
    I have LG mini-USB charger DC 5.1 V , 0.7A. HTC battery ratings are 3.7V DC - 1400 mAh. Will this create any problem if I charge my HTC Desire using LG charger?

    Thanks
    Shiv

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    If I'm not mistaken a PC USB interface charges at 5V and 500 milli-Amps.

    Given that the LG spec's are only a couple hundred mA higher I'm thinking that it would be OK to use. That said your HTC charger is lower voltage and higher amperage so I'd probably keep an eye on it. You also might want to reference on of the existing discussions on this topic...
