    Yes you can. That's the beauty of micro USB. It's universal.

    Yes, BUT I wouldn't recommend any charger that puts out more current than the stock one does or it could damage the battery over time. I think the stock one is 1.3A so stick with one that is equal or lower output and you're good.

    I was on that Nokia help chat deal asking about this and they said this is the recommended car charger, so I guess up to 2A is fine.

    My understanding is that, with modern circuitry, this doesn't matter as the phone will only draw the max it is capable of.

    You also want to make sure it's not too weak, as it may not charge the phone.
    Arguing with an ***** is like playing chess with a pigeon.
    You could be the greatest player in the world, but the pigeon will still knock over all the pieces, s--t on the board and strut around triumphantly-Tomtom6 on NcSportbikes.com
