    I wonder if it is okay/safe to use my PB fast charger with the Classic? Over the last 15 years I have never worried about which plug in charger I have used for any of my BlackBerry devices, and had no issues adding the fast charger plug in as a charging station.
    The charger plug in with the Classic is really the first one that seems to have different specs so now I am cautious.
    Has anyone with technical knowledge looked at the specs of the fast charger and compared them to the Classic plug in?
    I don't have the expertise myself so....
    Thanks!

    AFAIK charger has a small chipboard inside and it actually negotiates the max charging rate with the device it's actually charging.

    My charger starts buzzing when I plug in my classic, and it's the original charger comes in the box.
    Should I be worried ?

    would it be that the vibration comes on for a second? then no

    Nah, it's just keep humming.
    A loose space key and a humming charger ?

    I just noticed this now, because I've been using my laptop usb port to charge.

    Yes! ALL BlackBerry chargers have ic chip so you'll never over charge your device. I use a Ventev dual 2.4 amp USB charger sometimes and it's totally ok. They all have chips which control the ion uptake of electricalcharges!
