A usb cable plugged into a computer will charge a controller properly, but I have yet to get anything except a motorola phone charge with a motorola phone charger.
I charge my HTC phone with a motorola phone charger.

Generally, I use a laptop's USB ports to charge my PS3 headset and controllers because I don't like keeping the PS3 powered on. If I do have to use the PS3, like I did the first time I charged the keyboard since it also syncs by plugging in the USB, I just open up Life with Playstation and have it fold a single data packet and then shut down once that's completed. Usually the 6-8 hours it takes to do that, whatever I have plugged in is fully charged.
