The 800 seems a newer design but puts out like half the amps the 880 puts out.
Sony are beginning to annoy me...
EP 800 was the charger for Sony Xperia X10 / Xperia Arc / Xperia Arc S. The E800 provides 5V DC @ 850mA
EP 880 is the charger for Xperia Z / Xperia Z1. The EP880 provides 5V DC @ 1500mA
I think there is no issues other than doubling the charging time with EP800.
They Would have given the old stock or something like that.
Anyways inform the Sony Service about this issue and get the EP 880 back as it is the standard in the box charger which Sony gives with the device.
