    Look at the data sheet of your camcorder.
    5V and
    1A (1000mA) or less is OK :)

    I use my charger for anything that takes a micro usb cable. Phones, satnav etc. Nothing has exploded so far...

    I tried to use one of these chargers to charge a Flip once, it went bad, it seems to discharge the Flip to the point where i had to charge it correctly for a very long time before it would come back on. Thought I'd broken in!
    As other say I use it for anything that has a microUSB socket for charging (Mainly my Kindle) but be careful with the Flip.

    I used mine for my hands free ear piece.. I think I bent it as it slips out of my phone really easily so I'd be careful! :p
