    Will charging my Z30 with my old 9800/9810 charger or charging my wife's 9800 with my Z30 charger damage either battery?

    - Z30 Charger: Output 5V -- 850mA
    - 9800/9810 Charger: Output 5V -- 750mA

    I can't imagine charging the Z30 with the 9800's 100mA less output charger would damage the battery. I suspect it would just charge at a slightly slower rate. On the other hand, perhaps the Z30's 100mA higher output charger might not be good for the 9800's battery. Either that or it may just charge a bit faster.

    Thoughts?

    All it's gonna do is:

    • Charge the Z30 a bit slower;
    • Charge the 9800 a bit faster.

    I use my PlayBook's charger. used it when I had a 9780 and use it on my Z10.

    PlayBook Charger: Output 5V -- 2A (It is actually sold as a generic BlackBerry Premium charger - has a yellow micro USB plug).

    Charge away, pal!

    Good to know diegonie, thanks. I figured less mA's wouldn't hurt as you can charge a device from a computer USB port.

    Great, now I have three 9800/9810 chargers and four Z30 chargers. That's the only consolation for receiving one defective Z30 after another. I somehow kept forgetting to return the chargers with the devices.

    No problem, here's my [totally offtopic] reply. That's actually me in the white Formula Ford. Not sure where you're from, but that picture's entering the top of corner 2 at Mosport International Raceway in Ontario, Canada. I've been racing cars for 30 years but race Karts now. Senna and Gilles Villeneuve were my heroes growing up.

    Ahhhh... You're from Brasil, makes sense now!
