And yet, Sprint PCS sells chargers labeled neither Samsung nor Sanyo and
with the "Standardized Charging Connector" (SCC) and which are intended
to be used on both brands. I think that ever since Sprint introduced
phones using the SCC, it's safe to interchange the chargers. By the
way, I remove the rubber donut for a better fit.
