    I've heard the "talk" that it isn't good for the battery.
    But, I've also heard that that is old "talk" ....

    Does anyone have reservations about using a car charger for your Blackberry?

    I bought my car charger at a corporate store, they said the cheaper chargers can overcharge your battery. Don't know if its true or not, but it sold me. I made sure its a blackberry charger.

    I like to use mine on trips to check routes without running down the battery prior to reaching my destination.

    Good question.

    What we all have to remember is that the first time you start using your battery, you start to kill it. Batteries all die a slow death. Studies show that after just a few months of use, your cell phone battery has probably lost between 10-30 percent of it's life. Few cell phone batteries are going to be worth much after about 18 months.

    Generally the best way to keep one of today's cell-phone batteries happy is to keep it cool and fully charged. Batteries do not like extreme temperatures but they do like to be fully charged. Don't leave your cell phone in your car during the summer in high heat weather. Do try and keep it charged as frequently as possible.

    After all that, remember that you'll probably need to replace your battery every year to year and a half.

    I use a car charger. Sometimes necessary due to how much I use this phone!

    I have always used my car charger with no problems. Although since I bought the BB charging pod, I hardly charge it in the car anymore.

    What's a car charger?
    LOL

    I just charge mine up over night and I'm good for the whole day. If for some reason the battery gets low I just keep the wall plug with my gear.

    As long as it's a name brand charger, you should be good. (Motorola or RIM chargers work well.) The universal ones or OEM ones aren't good for your car and/or phone. Just like the 3 in 1 cigarette lighters everyone buys from best buy. The seem like it's a good deal, but it's not.

    A few years ago there would probably have been problems but these days the devices are usually well protected. the worst that could happen is that "the damn thing don't charge".

    When I bought my berry I got a car charger as well, but the sales associate told me that the car charger just kinda "shocks" your battery back to life and that it would end up eventually draining your phone battery much quicker than normal...

    I don't know how true that is... but I charge mine when I'm at home with my wall charger, and keep the car charger for emergencies...
