    USB Adapter from iPhone

    I'm wondering if I can use my car changing adapter from my iPhone for my Nexus One. Just the lighter to USB socket that plugs into the car lighter socket and has a standard USB female connector on it. I would plug my N1 USB cable into it. Will this work? Any risk?

    This is actually a Dynex adapter -model DX-IPDC

    Specs:
    Input DC 12v - 14v
    Output DC 5v 500mA

    ------------

    Specs from Nexus One:
    Charges at 480 mA from USB, at 980 mA from supplied charger

    Searching around I found some hits indicating that a 5v charge is correct. The mA is fine as well. So I plugged it in and it charged fine without blowing up.

    It won't blow up, but the current is a quarter of what you should have for use in the car (see the car doc docs, 5V 2A). So if you plan to use Navigation, etc. it might not charge.
