    My setup is:
    Motorola cellphone AC adapter (output: 5.0V 550mA) ----> passive miniUSB-to-USB adapter ----> USB-to-DSi cable

    Is there any risk charging the battery this way?

    In the past i've charged using the USB-to-DSi cable only connected to a PC, but now i can't do that.

    Considering the standard DSi charger outputs 4.6V 900mA, the only real way to tell is to try it.

    Though I'll say this from personal experience. The more adapters between point A and point B, the more possibilities for something to go wrong.

    If it works from a PC it will work from that charger
    Too much mA doesn't matter
    A PC does 5v and that charger also does 5v, charger has more power and you dsi will maybe charge faster

    There shouldn't be any risk. Power-wise, the AC adapter behaves like a standard USB port.
