Wow, that's impressive. They should charge the battery quicker than the original. They'd make a good replacement.

I just plugged into my iPad charger and was instantly getting 785 mA on the charge. I then plugged into the nokia charger and it registers about 650 tops. Looks like the iPad charger will work for a slightly faster charge as well.

I believe someone on the internet did a test and the Nokia charger charges faster than the majority of chargers. I don't know that any charger will hurt the phone if if delivers 1 or less amps at 5 volts. It may take longer to charge but your phone should be fine with other decent brands.

In addition to my Nokia charger I use the Belkin mini surge protector. It has two USB charging ports. I don't think it works for iphones though for some reason. Someone else will have to confirm.



In the car I use an onn Dual USB Car Charger. I can't find anything on the web about it. I bought it at Walmart for $10. It works for Lumia 900s and iphones. I've only had it a couple of weeks but it seems to work fine. The problem with car chargers is there seem to be a lot of unreliable models out there. Even the one on the at&t site gets plenty of bad reviews. I wouldn't mind paying more if I knew I was getting a product that would last me years. Anyway we will see if the Walmart charger lasts. If it dies I will report back.

Let me get this straight you don't have a phone with this OS. You don't like this OS, but yet you are always hanging out in this OS' forum.

The Belkin only delivers 500 mA to the USB, so it's about the same as plugging it into a computer. That's also the reason that it won't work for an iPhone.

I plugged into a Motorola Droid X charger - rated for 1000ma - it started charging the thing just as fast as OOTB charger. I think the phone is happy with any 1amp chargers. I'll test my iPad 2A charger in the car soon and report back.

HP has the Touchpad charger on sale for $4.99 with free shipping.

I just bought a 3rd one since I have an Touchpad and tried charging my 900 with that charger. Fast charging, nothing damagin, and a very cheap yet OEM equipment.

WIN-WIN
