I want to know if it matches with the Samsung Strive charger so I don't damage the Infuse (I don't have the charger for the infuse at the moment).

If it's a wall charger with plugs that match your outlets, the input range should be covered.

Normal USB chargers are 5 V at up to 1.8 mA. The voltage is the main concern -- standard USB ports for PCs only go up to 900 mA, which is why they charge slower. You can see the USB power specs on Wikipedia:

(In sum, any USB charger that you can trust to do what it says on its specs should work fine. A crappy no-name charger might lie, but two Samsung chargers should be 100% interchangeable.)

Ok Cool. Thanks for the answer Matt. I do recall both chargers saying 5v but one is 0.7A and the other is 1.0A. So I guess the 1.0 will charge the battery faster. Is it possible that charging the battery too fast could mess it up (or hurt the phone)? – trusktr Jul 27 '11 at 2:15
@trusktr They phone shouldn't draw more current than it wants, and that's fairly low anyways, so it should be fine. – Matthew Read Jul 27 '11 at 3:29
