My charge port is broken out of my 8300. I bought an extra battery and an external charger off of eBay for a little of nothing. You can also by a pod that will charge your Blackberry. The two gold tabs on the back of your device beneath the battery is an external charger connection for a desktop pod.

How to charge it


Hi Stacey
How to charge "what model" Cell Phone

iPhone & others usually charge from the USB cable that it comes with.
Plug into any USB port (5v DC)
Some chargers supply more current which can give a faster charge. iPad chargers supply 2A where as iPhone chargers are 1A

My Samsung s5 is not charging their is nothing wrong with my charger


check this

1. First of all make sure that you are using an approved wall charger of Samsung Company. Because charging accessories of other brands may have different voltage parameters and may cause Samsung Galaxy S5 not charging issue.

3. To check the charger, charge another Samsung phone using the same charger and see if it is charging. If the other phone is charging well, then the charger is fine. Now you should check your phone.

Will not charge


Are you using the AC Adapter, or USB sync cable to computer to charge? If using your computer to charge, you will need to have USB Driver for your BlackBerry Model installed. Download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5It

Could also be that your USB Port on your BB is damaged. You can use an external Battery Charger to charge your Battery http://www.amazon.com/Blackberry-External-Battery-Charger-8300/dp/B002YGYLA8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1263514496&sr=8-2

No power


Make sure you have an original OEM charger for the MDA. Many of the knock off chargers don't provide the right amperage for the device. What happens is that since the phone is completely dead, it can't regulate how many amps the battery should get during the charge and an incorrect charge current won't charge the battery. I'm guessing that someone sold you a Motorola RAZR charger or another knockoff made for the RAZR. This might charge your phone when the battery is working, but not when it's DEAD. Also you won't have luck plugging it into a computer USB cable because, again, the phone can't tell the computer what charge to send and most computers only produce <0.5 amps in the USB port.

Get a charger that states it is an OEM (original eqipment manufacturer) device or one that is specifically designed for the MDA (or Cingular 8125). eBay is full of them.

Bad charger (probably won't work for a dead battery)

Good Charger (correct amperage and designated for the MDA)

Motorola W370 will not charge


Motorola provides a USB driver for just charging the W370. I installed it using the installation instructions from the Motorola website, but it just wouldn't work. The USB driver would install but would not activate (error Type 10). The W370 said that it could not charge. I recommend not bothering with this device driver, at least not with Windows XP.

However, I did figure out how to get the W370 charging from a USB port by trial and error. It's a pretty simple process.

1. Before plugging in the USB cable, turn on the W370 and wait for it to fully boot.
2. Connect the phone to the USB port of the computer.
3. When the phone asks "Connect phone as storage Device?", press the phone's left soft key, choosing "YES".
4. The phone will say "Please Wait...... Connecting Phone as Storage Device"
5. Eventually, the phone will display a white screen with the message, "In storage mode, no regular phone activities can be done."
6. Flip the phone closed. The yellow battery indicator will be lit. The phone is charging.

You'll note that the computer will see the W370 as a storage device with around 512 Megabytes of free memory, with empty "picture" and "sound" directories. The W370 appears to be a generic mass storage device to the computer. No special device driver is needed to charge the W370!
