alternative cable for my lg nexus 4

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – hello world. I am a little desperate so if anyone else has posted the same thread, cut me some slack. i forgot my charger/cable back in holland and i wont be getting back there for a long time. for the time being I charge my LG nexus 4 with my old htc explorer cable. it seems to be charging perfectly. can i use this cable safely or will it damage my battery?
