Speaking of chargers, here's a bit of a stupid question!
Will using the 2 Amp (2000 mAmp) charger cause problems for the XS battery?
I'd been using the charger that came with the XS to charge it. I think its 700 or 850 mAmp, not certain. Then last week, I got the nexus 7 tablet, and that comes with a 2 Amp charger. I tried it on the phone and it charged it about 60% in around 30 mins.
Needless to say, that's pretty fast, but I was left wondering if long time use would fook up the battery on a phone that it is non-replaceable?
The battery will draw a max of 1500mA charging as far as i know anything over it just denies, the battery has some kind of on board chip on it to create this limit of charge although the highest iv seen on mine was about 1560mA charging with the set up above.
It also depends on the cable you use, the cable that comes with the phone is a data/charge cable and because of this it also limits the charge, the cable linked above is a dedicated charge cable which has bridged connectors on it just for charge only BUT also has a little switch on it to change between charge and data
Hope this throws some light on the subject
