    Will a Blackberry Mini USB charger work with a Pre without any damage being done? The cord that comes with the Pre is too short and my BB charger is plenty long.

    I dunno, I used a Blue Ant car charger with mine, and after that the battery went all screwy. Wouldn't fully charge, drop charge fast, etc. I got a new battery and now I only use OEM with the silver dot. YMMV.

    The Pre uses Micro USB not Mini. As long as whatever charger you are using is putting out 1 amp or 1000mAh, you should be fine. Many 850mAh chargers will work, but your milage may vary.

    Not all chargers will work properly. I sent for some of those cheap chargers that were advertised to work with the Pre and they would not charge the phone or they would make the phone act strange (turn off & on and the touch screen would act erratic). The blackberry ones seem to have enough juice to run the phone. Same with the car chargers, if they don't have enough juice to run the phone they won't work at all.
