I have an iPhone 4S that I get through a USB cable (connected to my laptop). I also have a Samsung USB charger with the following specs: 5.0V and 1.0A.
Is it safe to connect my Apple USB cable to the Samsung charger and charge my iPhone like this?
- Can I use my iPhone charger to charge other USB devices?
- MBP15 2016 – Load right to left
- Acer H277H monitor is not charging 2016 MacBook when connected via USB-C. Is it possible?
- Intermittent USB not working – requires reboot – what to try next?
- Is it possible to charge iPhone by other means?
Should I worry it might blow up?
If I use a charger with more / less amps, does it matter?
- Apple 5S USB-only charging mode
- Connection to USB device connected via WiFi
- Connecting USB devices wakes Mac running Mountain Lion only temporarily
- Upgrade to Snow Leopard via a USB optical drive
- iPod Touch will charge from computer USb, but not from AC outlet
While I personally won’t stick a non-A-brand charger on my iPhone, theoretically if the charger delivers 5V and does it on a USB connector, it doesn’t matter where the power comes from.
The more amps the faster it will load from the iPhone. I have been charging my iPhone with my iPad charger for years without any problems.
Apple currently has 3 types of USB chargers
The Samsung 1 amp charger you are talking about will give the same results as the original iPhone charger.
