    I have already talked about it with Nokia USA Customer Service... but they didn't sound confident on the phone, or I might have been overly paranoid :)

    Here's the problem.

    I have bought Nokia 6610 in the US and it came with ACP-12U charger with 5.7V output (the phone has 3.7V battery).

    My mom bought her Nokia 3100 in Europe from certified Nokia distributor and it came with ACP-7E (E = Europian plug) charger with 3.7V output. Nokia 3100 also has 3.7V battery but not the same as 6610. Now she is visiting me and needs to charge her phone. I went on Nokia USA web site and it said that I need either ACP-7U (U = US plug) with 3.7V output or ACP-12U with 5.7V output.

    My concern is : can I really charge 3100 (3.7V battery) with ACP12U (5.7V output)? I just would hate to fry my mom's phone or battery because of some typo on the web site ;-)

    If you like the smell of warm melted plastic, by all means go for it!

    An extra 2V is a lot of juice, just go spend the $20 on a new charger.

    Well... that's what I felt about those extra 2 Volts as well. But here's the email I got from Cust Service:

    According to the email 3100 can be both charged by ACP-7U and ACP-12U... but doesn't help my paranoia ;-)
