Hey ladies and gents -

I have an HTC Desire that came with the UK charger (the interchangable pronged one).  I'm wondering if its possible to buy one of these:
and convert my old chargers to be usable for charging my new device.

At the moment I charge via a usb connection to home/work computers.

Here are the stats of each charger - to my untrained eye they look like they should fit the bill but a bit of confirmation would never go astray - especially with possibly frying a brand new phone!  If any more details are needed i'm happy to provide them!

uk htc desire charger (model TCP300)
input: 100-240v~0.2A 50-60Hz
output: 5V 1A

nz charger for htc vogue
input: 100-240V~200mA 50-60Hz
output: 5V 1A

nz car plug charger
input: 12-24Vdc
output: DC 5V 850mA(Max.)

Any insight would be good as my google searches are coming up dry (to the most part probably from searching incorrect keywords.)

Looks fine.

I should probably worry about these things more to be honest, but I haven't yet fried a phone with cheapie car chargers and such like yet (although its possible I don't keep my phones long enough for the damaging effects to make themselves known!).
