[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Charger Blues

Hi All,

I bought my N770 while visiting the UK a few months back.

The charger (AC4-X) cable snappt at the root of the end that goes to the
wall. Now I cannot charge my device :-(

I am now back home and this particular charger model isn't available.
Furthermore, the local Nokia rep doesn't support the N770 because it isn't a
cell phone....

I know all new models come with a similar charger (with the mini plug) and
so I found a charger with similar tech specs (input and output), by similar
I mean the output mA is 860 instead of 890...

I charged it once with a friend's charger and it worked fine - except 2

I charged it while the device was off. The battery icon showed up and after
a few second begun to animate the charge. A while later I noticed the screen
was off completely - no indication for the charging process. I turned the
device on and it booted faster than usual and the battery animation was
still showing....

The other thing I noticed was: the charge didn't last like it used to. I
might be wrong, because I left FBReader open and the Online Mode on (I
usually don't have network access at work, so I leave it Offline).

Is it OK to use a different charger with the same specs? Am I doing
something that will cause damage to the device? the battery?

Please advise!
