    ACP-7U and ACP-8U ?

    Disregarding the "U" ... here's my issue.

    I have a Nokia 8890 that came with a charger ACP-8U and here are the specs :

    Input : 120 mA, 50-60 Hz
    Output: DC 5.3 V , 500 mA

    I recently bought a Nokia 7250i that came with a charger ACP-7U and here are
    the specs:

    Input : 50 mA, 60 Hz
    Output : DC 3.7 V , 350 mA ( 0.35A)

    If you check the accessories for the 7250i at
    http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,27413,00.html and for the 8890 at
    http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,2780,00.html you will see that both phones
    can use both chargers.

    My question is how can that be if each charger has different output ?

    Isn't that going to dammage the battery ?

    Thanks in advance for your reply/opinion.

    7 is a normal charger , 8 is a rapid / travel charger.

    AFAIK, it's a country label, to identify the different mains voltages / plug
    styles across the globe

    > My question is how can that be if each charger has different output ?


    the 7 will take perhaps 3 hours, the 8 will take 2. (very rough estimates)

    > Isn't that going to dammage the battery ?


    not really. regular rapid charging is not the healthiest option for the
    battery, but it won't shorten the life noticably. Tomato sauce can be
    fattening, but on top of a bacon sarnie, it makes little difference. I
    always use a rapid charger, and generally the battery shows decline after 18
    months of heavy use. even this far outweighs the lifespan of the handset,
    and I'm normally cycling two batteries anyway.

    if the phone has had more than a year of daily use, then the battery will
    start to decline.regardles of which charger you use.

    This is a Fast Travel Charger. This means you can use it with a range of
    voltages, and it'll charge around twice as fast as a 8 series. The 8 series
    can also be used on a range of voltages. The 7 series is the slowest
    charger, and has a set voltage for a given country.
