    Myself and several others on here have some of the batterys and chargers available on eBay. I was wondering if it was ok to use the stock battery in these chargers or not? I have been but dunno if it will have a bad impact on the battery or not. Thoughts?

    eBay can be anything.

    If it doesn't screw up any LiIon battery you got with it, it won't screw up your stock battery.

    Most important is that it terminates charging when battery gets to 4.15v to 4.25 vdc.

    Ya it shuts off when it is fully charged and seems to be working fine with the 3 different types of batterys I've ended up with now. Thanks

    Good luck with the charger. I am a bit paranoia when it comes to batteries. Too many stories about exploding batteries on this side of the Pacific Ocean.

    been using the chargers from ebay for quite some time. they've been fine so far. the galaxy s requires you use a samsung usb cable though, otherwise the phone will go weird on you. not sure why it does that.

    here are the 3 types of batterys I am using and the charger, all seem to be working good and similar battery lifetime (even the extended battery unfortunately). and the generic usb cable (plugged into wall though as I use Double Twist Air Sync instead of usb to sync).
