Default Zen V plus charging

Hi,
I have a mains charger that I received with a generic mp3 player from ebay (one of the cheap ones from Hong Kong). It appears to work with my zen v plus and charges it up fine. Having read some of the other posts on here re charging problems, my question is am I potentially damaging my player by using a non-creative charger or does the fact that it appears to charge ok suggest that it really is ok.
Any advice/thoughts gratefully received.

Hello lymmguineas. Welcome to ABI.

It sounds like the charger is fine if it is charging your ZVP and it continues to work properly. To verify, what are the output specs of the charger?

Thanks Bobby.
Here's the info from the back of the charger:
Travel Charger
Model LF-003<IC>
Input 100-250V 50/60Hz
Output DC5.0V
DC400mA
What do you think? Sounds ok?

Yes, sounds just fine. This charger is within the charging specs of USB, so all is good.
