    Using charger from another device?

    Hi all
    I have tech question.
    Is this possible to substitute chargers?
    My 6600 has charger with output 5V and 2A max.
    I also have Bluetooth GPS with car charger output 5.3 V and 0.5 A
    + I wife has cell nokia with charger 5.7v and 0.8 A.
    All connectors match each other by format and polarity.
    Only one of chargers is Car based. This is BT charger.
    So question. Can I safely use one this 5.3V 0.5A car charger to charge all 3 devices? How 6600 will behave if it expects 2A?

    tnx

    Assuming you get the right connectors and polarities, if it wants 2Amperes and it get 500milliamps it will charge slower.

    That having been said - any iPAQ charger that uses the barrel connector (NOT THE EDGE CONNECTOR - THE PINOUT IS DIFFERENT AND CAN DAMAGE THE 6600) will work with the included barrel to edge connector tip = they use the exact same voltage and current levels. LET ME REITIERATE - DO NOT USE THE IPAQ EDGE CONNECTOR.
