    Hi all

    I recently recived a LG choclete as a replacement phone since my razor broke but they have diffrent charger connections. I went over to radio shack and found the tip I need, but its made by IGo and there for I would have to buy their $30 wall adapter. Heres the thing the wall adapter that I would have to buy looks like this
    http://www.the-gadgeteer.com/assets/igo-powerxtender-6.jpg thats the $30 one and the tip is $10 which I'am planning to buy this is the tip

    The tip and the adapter both connect using like 6 male conectors that would plug into the adapter like shown above. I have like 3 diffrent phone chargers which give out the exact same output and input as the LG phone and all have just 2 wires one black one black with white line. Now the LG tip from radio shack for $10 has 6 of those male connectors, I do not want to buy the wall adapter becouse I belive IGo did that just so we buy their product. How can I use my old phone charger perhaps one from my razor and cut the wire and solder it onto the $10 tip that has 6 male connectors.
    can someone help please

    You want to risk destroying your new phone to save $30?

    You can probably get the whole charger for $10 on eBay. Did your phone not include one?
