    Hey you crazy kids and kats!

    Long time no post. :)

    After 4 years enslaved in the iOS ecosystem, I'm now Windows 8 in a Lumia 920. Great great hunk of machinery this phone.

    I have all these stupid iPhone and ipad chargers floating around now and I'm wondering if the little white power bricks will charge the 920 without making it explode and ooze battery juices.

    Any thoughts gang?

    Hey friend! As always good to hear from good people <yup>
    Assuming the N_phone wants to feed on 5volts, I'd think you'd be good to go. In general, devices will take the current (amps) they need from whatever is offered, but if the voltage is wrong - especially too high -- there will be problems. That said, if the current provided is too low, it'll take forever to charge.

    Hey Rick. Thanks for the advice.

    I just don't want to fry this thing or shorten its battery life.

    Anyone else wanna weigh in? I just hate to have to pitch all these power blocks if could use them.

    Also, you can check the microdot labeling on the power things; they will give the voltage (almost certainly 5 volts) and the amperage output (it will be at least 500 milliamps, probably 1 amp, probakly higher for iPad adapters)

    If it helps, I've used the iPhone blocks to charge my 928 and it's been fine so far.

    Though I highly recommend keeping your eyes peeled for a sale on the wireless charge pads. I keep one on my desk at work and love just tossing the phone onto it and grabbing it when I need it without unplugging.

    My only regret is not getting a second one for home when they were on sale!

    As NetB noted, that was a UK price in pounds, not dollars, you are quoting. Here's the US version.

    Amazon.com: CHOE UPGRADED Qi Wireless Charger Charging Pad for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, New Nexus 7 Tablet, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 and Other Qi-Enabled Phones: Electronics

    If you are in the US, I recommend you going for this one from AT&T. Works great. I got it for much cheaper off slick deals, but even at this price it is well worth it. I use it with my Nexus 5.
