    I've used the charger from a Note 2 on my L620 without any issues.

    Depends.
    If it would cause ww3, no don't use it.
    Otherwise, I don't see why not.

    I never used original Nokia charger of my 928. Only when I'm home I charge wirelessly.

    That will be fine and I have used my brothers Samsung Galaxy S3 charger for my Lumia. Pretty much any charger with a micro USB will charge your phone (how quick is a different story).

    The only time I have seen a Nokia charger needed is when the battery is 100% dead, there might be issues getting the phone to start charging again. The last time I saw this though was on a Lumia 900 wp7 phone. I keep my battery charged for the most part.

    Hi, new to the forum. Further to charging the battery on a 1520, should the battery be fully drained before re charging? As i understand the re chargeable batteries from old used to form a memory and only hold a certain amount of charge.

    better to charge BEFORE it reaches that state as LiOn batteries can be topped off with no ill effects.
    Lith-ion batteries don't have the memory effect that NiCad batteris did,

    Typically, you can charge whenever its convenient. 80%, 20%, whatever.
    There is no battery memory in recent batteries, even in 10 year old phones.

    But to maintain accuracy, its a good practice to completely discharge and charge about once a month, give or take.

    You wont want to use it too much if its not about the same voltage/amps if its around 1.0 to 1.3 you're okay.
