    usb charger for the Droid X

    I just have a question about using other phone chargers for the droid x. when I got my phone it only came with a USB cable to charge off of a computer. Before this phone I had a Blackberry curv which had a wall outlet to a micro usb just like the droid x does..
    My question is can I use that wall charger to charge my Droid X ???

    I don't know if there is a certain power raiting I should look for or if all micro usb connection can only carry a certain voltage anyway.

    Thanks for your help

    droid x uses 5v wich most all other phones use so you should be good. i use an lg cord for charging and it works just fine.

    It should be safe, but the risk is yours. It may or may not work at all. The adapter (I like to call them wall warts), will have rthe specs on it somewhere. If it says it puts out anything significantly greater than 5 volts, I wouldn't use it.

    It'll work just fine, my dad uses his LG env2 charger to charge his incredible and I've used it for my X. 5v is the standard for USB so pretty much anything that has a micro USB plug will work to charge it.

    Not all USB supplies are created equally. The DX requires the USB DATA pins to be tied together along with a high value (~200k) pull-up resistor.

    Mine came with the cord attached to a wall charger. When I use a pc (laptop) to charge it it seems to take forever. Thats probably better for the battery life but I am impatient.

    Yes a lot of chargers will work to CHARGE the phone, but make sure you also have a Moto/VZW factory usb cable as well in case you need to SBF. Many 'off-brand' USB cords will leave you stuck at the 'waiting for phone' prompt when you try to SBF...
