There are a multitude of "compatible" Blackberry, Sony Ericsson and Samsung mini-USB chargers on Amazon, all for around £3. The problem is that none of them have their output amps anywhere in the product description. Has anyone bought one of these and had it work properly?

No idea I'm afraid...but I'd be interested to hear what everyone else has got :)

This is the one that I just ordered. I'll post and let you know how it goes when I get it. It's rated at 2.1 amps so it might be a little better than the 500mA phone charger I've been using. The amperage should only be an issue when using self-powered USB hard drives and such right?
