    So I found an old motorola car charger. It fits in my blackberry, and the charging icon comes on when plugged in. Is it ok to use? Or will it ruin my battery?

    Unless you are using a charger with higher amperage and voltage, you shouldn't have a problem. I've been using motorolla chargers (5.0v 550ma) for my bold for the past year and have had no overheating issues (It just takes a bit longer to charge).

    Like another poster had mentioned, I believe that the problem lies with the quality of the chargers themselves (cheap aftermarket garbage from Ebay or very old broken down chargers).
