My wife has a new HTC Wildfire, and I have a Desire. MY question is the interchangeability of the chargers to reduce requirements when travelling. The Desire charger model is TC8250, and the Wildfire is TC4250.
Is it possible to interchange these? Presumably the Wildfire, with the lower model number, may take longer to charge the Desire, but would the Desire charger somehow be too powerful for the Wildfire?

Regards

Limitation should be on the voltage.  As long as it is 5v, then there isn't an issue. The difference in charging time has to do with the mAh rating. Desire's charger is 1000mAh, but I'm not sure about wildfire's. It shouldn't hurt to interchange chargers.

Thank you for the reply. My fading eyes let me down on the model numbers, the desire being TC B250 and the wildfire TC A250. This probably doesn't influence your response which is as I hoped. all other specs seem the same altho I can't confirm  1000mAh for the wildfire as yet.

mAh rating is not important, it just influences how much juice can be put into the battery, and at what rate. Higher means more battery/faster charge rate, that's all.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I have another query in another part of the forum. I don't know if you are an expert on the transfer of data from pc to phone. This is the query heading if you are:
"Newby PC to Desire transfer method"

Thanks again
