My PDP's 5.2vdc/2.0amp charger uses a tiny ring & barrel type connector. I have a 5.2vdc/0.8 amp Sanyo cell phone charger that fits my PDP. I'm wondering if it's safe to use the cell phone charger on the PDP. Is it safe to use a charger that has a lower rating...does the charger protect itself against overload?

I would say it is somewhat safe. BUT, I don't think you would be able to run the PDP and charge it at the same time. It would have to be a power off charger if anything.
I have a similar issue with my Cell phone. I have a car charger that is my wifes, but the micro usb also fits my phone. The amperage is lower than my wall charger, and when I try to charge my phone in my car with the power on, it is only enough juice to sustain the current charge, it wont store more juice.

Good Luck!

I have found that a tip from a Samsung VM-A680 or a SPH-A680 phone will fit just fine.
