I doubt anything with higher voltage is
safe to use. Higher amperage is what enables fast charging. Regular USB is 500ma, the stock HTC chargers are 1000ma (1amp) that have faster charging.

+1 for the blackberry charger. The cord is way longer too so you can prance around while its plugged in.

I use the stock HTC charger when I'm traveling. I replaced my wall sockets at home with ones that have USB ports in them. They work perfectly fine. I believe the ones I have are about 1 amp.

i would be wary of HTC ebay wall chargers, there's probably tons of fakes out there. I somehow managed to buy a pair of fake HTC "oem" headphones the other day that lasted about two days before one ear broke (not to mention the phone controls were WACK).

I'd suggest going to amazon and getting an amazonbasics cable. They're really cheap, they make long ones, and I've had great experiences with them. As for wall chargers, I've had good luck with my one x using BlackBerry, HTC, amazon (for Kindle fire) and nook chargers. Just find one with nice amperage.
