    hey. i have an LG phone charger that has a micro-b usb end. I would like to use it to charge my droid with but im afraid using a charger that was not designed for the droid would be a bad idea. the charger says 5.1V output. is it ok to use this charger on my droid?

    I'm not sure about the LG charger, but I've used my buddy's BlackBerry and Nokia micro USB chargers on my Droid without any problems. Never even second guessed it :O

    I have a Nokia car charger that I bought because it was cheap, and I also have a portable charger that uses a AA battery that was not specifically made for the Droid, never had a problem with either one.

    I tried to use the LG charger on my droid; didn't work for crap. I was wanting to use the charger that came with my phone, in the bedroom and then use the LG charger that I had from before, down in the kitchen. Yeah it didnt work so well, I had it plugged in for hours and the battery would charge a total of maybe 5% in the whole time frame.

    I charge via the computer or by the stock motorola charger.

    I haven't even used the charger that came with my phone yet, lol. I'm using an older micro usb charger i had for my old moto razr2. I even use the micro charger i have for my stereo bluetooth headset. Even on occasion i use the micro car charger i got from sprint years back when i had the razr2. I find it kinda funny though that the charger has sprints logo on it yet i'm on verizon.

    I use my wife's LG Dare charger for that past three months without any side affects.

    I have one for a Blackberry, one from Verizon and a couple of the Motorola chargers. They all work the same, great.

    Well, considering USB ports from a computer can only supply 500mA, as long as your charger can output at least that much current, it should be okay. This is, of course, assuming that it outputs 5.1V. Make sure you don't use anything that outputs a different voltage!
