    Are wall and car chargers interchangeable within a brand?

    I have Nokia 3380 and am planning to get a 3560 or 6560. Many Ebay
    offerings come without one or both chargers, and I am wondering if my
    present chargers will work with thenew phones.

    AFAIK, any Nokia charger will work with any (within reason) Nokia phone.

    I have a charger that came with my ex-ex Phone (3210) and it still seems to
    charge my 6230 without any problems. Someone once told me that some newer
    Nokia chargers are slightly higher voltage, but that only means that they
    charge the phone a little quicker.

    I'm no expert, and follow this advice totally at your own risk, but I think
    the answer to your question is 'YES'

    Cheers,

    ChrisM.

    The ACP-12X which comes with the later Nokia phones is 5.7V/800mAh,
    whereas the ACP-7X which came with my old 3210 and 6150 is 3.7V/350mAh.
    Both will charge my 6310i and 7250i ok but the ACP-12X won't charge my
    6150.

    Not necessarily, see above.

    More a "maybe" IMHO.

    3380????????????

    All phones from Nokia for the last few years will let you use the
    ACP7U charger even the most recent phones. It is a trickle charger
    and chargers like the ACP12 are 5.7 V and will charge newer Nokias
    faster. It will not work on the 51/61XX series handsets though.

    That's what I thought but I wouldn't bet my life on the exact model
    number. Anyway, I am an old customer.

    There are some, like the 6610, which don't have the "two-prong" AC
    slots rather the conventional single-slot AC connection you'll find on
    the 3390 and others.
