Car charger without overcharge protection - fear of overcharging Mororola Razr V3

I have a car charger for a GPS navigator. I do not think it has an overcharge protection feature. It does fit the mini USB charge port on my Mororola Razor V3.
What are the dangers of overcharging the battery?
If I keep a constant check on the phone's 'Charge Complete' indicator to disconnect, how much potential damage would result if I go 'over' a couple of minutes?
I do not feel the need to purchase a separate 'Mororola Razor V3' specifice car charger ?!?!!?!?!? I have too many other unusable ones as it is.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thx - CH

    What is the difference between a mobile v3 charger (for my Motorola Razor v3) and the mobile GPS car charger? I was told (by Cingular - Ha Ha) I needed a Mororola brand mobile charger for the overcharge protection feature - I was also told (by Cingular) that not all mobile car chargers have this 'important battery life protection' feature.

    Do I need (really need) a mobile v3 charger (specific for the the Motorola Razor v3) ?????? Or, is it just 'preferrable'.

    Thanks for the help & insight - Bajanguru (and all those who help by replying).

Do a Amazon search for the iGo everywhere charger. It will charge multiple electronic gadgets without overcharging and automatically sets the voltage output based upon the gadget your using. If you need the charger quick, then go to Radio Shack.

Battery in Motorola RAZR V3

I couldnt find anything that says that exactly but if it keeps happneing then most likely that is the case. There are no active recalls for that battery from motorola so most likely there is something on the phone a short or something that could cause it to overheat or overcharge thereby hastening the wear and tear on the battery

Motorola V3 RAZR

ya your battery needs to be changed... this type of battery problem occurs due to use of duplicate chargers for charging or by overcharging some thing ... so i suggest you that after taking new battery if you want ur battery to lost long & to give good battery back up then just use original charger & while charging charge until the battery is complete & dnt over charge & charge only when your battery is fully down ... if you follow some of this tips you battery will be fine...

no the phone book is not lost when you take out your old battery bcoz every cell has the RAM memory to store so only it is called as phone memory.....

no need to worry change ur battery dnt take duplicate batteries try taking original ones

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.

you have overcharged your battery and need to get a new one and then you should get a charger with an IC smart chip that stopl charging once the battery reaches full. Motorola Phones in general have a problem with thier batteries.
