asked on

Can I use my iPhone charger to charge other USB devices?

I have the iPod USB power adaptor.  Can I plug any USB chargeable device into it?

Could I use it to charge my Kindle, for example?  The power rating on the two adaptors I have are slightly different, but I suppose that could be within USB standard tolerance.

Can anyone please advise, for sure?  Don't want to ruin a piece of equipment.

Thanks,

Dave

So you're implying that there's a power tolerance that all USB chargeable devices have?  E.g.,  1 charger is 5v 1a, while the other is 4.8v .85 amp.

Any specs on that acceptable range as evidence?  Sounds like common sense, but its my wifes equipment, so I don't want to mess it up.

If it was mine, I'd just plug in and take my chances...
