    Just bought an S2 and see that it comes with a 5V 0.7A charger

    I have an HTC Desire 5V 1.0A charger that I would like to use with this phone, both for the supplied battery and the Genuine Galaxy extended battery I have on order.

    I would like to put the Samsung charger on my daysack for use on the road and keep the Desire charger as my home unit as it has a USB socket which means I can plug in other devices e.g. satnav, battery pack and Desire plus the S2.

    Will the additional amperage of the charger allows be detrimental to the two S2 batteries I will be using?

    Oh no! I did not realise there was a difference, so have been using desire charger. Oops! Not really affected the battery yet that I have noticed but I guess it is the long term use....

    I'm not going to go into scientifics, I'm just going to say that I've used a variety of chargers with nearly every phone I've owned and they've never caused me any problems.

    I too have a collection of Samsung (phone & remote), Blackberry & HTC chargers which I have intermingled and now have no idea which is which... but everything works fine. Relax.

    (If it goes bang just deny everything!)
