    yes most likely, i currently have 4 different means of charging it...the charger it came with (my parents house) , a blackberry usb cable with an adapter to fit the evo (at work), a generic no brand wall charger (my apartment), and a car charger (my car)...no issues with any of them

    My Blackberry uses mini USB and I understand that the EVO uses micro USB. Maybe you have a Blackberry that uses micro USB though, Im not sure.

    mini on left, micro on right

    The charger no doubt fits in the phone. I'm just worried about it messing the battery up or something.

    Specs of the BB charger:
    Input: 100-240v ~ 200mA 50-60Hz 11-17VA
    OUTPUT: 5V=700ma

    This is a charger that i bought off of ebay that the seller sent me the wrong one and has been sitting in a box for about 6 months. So hopefully this thing wont blow my phone up.

    The Palm Pre charger matches the specs of the Evo charger, so I kept it when I sold my Pre back to Sprint :) So now I have a charger at work and home.

    You will be ok if you use any micro usb charger with an output of 1000ma (1a) or less.

    It'll be fine. If it's a mini USB, pick up a mini to micro adapter for a few bucks off eBay.
