    Hi all I tried to search the forums but couldn't find a topic specifically about this. I have a Motorola Razr phone that uses a mini-usb home charger. Since the TomTom ONE has a mini-usb connector I was hoping I could safely use the phone charger with it.

    Does anyone know if all mini-usb chargers are made the same? Would it be safe to use? I'm pretty cautious when it comes to batteries in devices that can't be replaced easily.. so any info would be helpful. Thanks!

    I personally have a Motorola v360 and its charger for my ONE. It seems perfectly fine with mine.

  6. using razr charger with the one

    The answer is yes it will work, in fact all mini usb's use a 5v 2a circuit, i work for tomtom and i have a razr as well, dont tell them if you call for repairs because it would void the warranty.-a certified tomtom technician

    I used the phone charger on my TomTom during a recent trip.. and for some reason after ~6 hours of charging it didn't show a full charge when I unplugged it. Might have been just a fluke.

    I ended up using the inlcuded car charger for the rest of the trip just to be sure it would show a full charge.

    Do people end up having to keep their TomTom constantly charging due to the battery not being able to keep its charge? That's the only thing I don't like about internal batteries that can't be easily replaced...

    I rarely use my car charger unless I taking a long trip.
    I would charge my unit(s) overnight.

    It really depends on how you regular you use the device. Personally, I always have it plugged in to my computer or my car/phone charger whenever I can.
