    OEM/3rd Party Micro USB Chargers - How much does amperage really matter?

    Well, how much?

    I've been reading around a bit, because I need at least 2 new chargers, and it seems like there's a lot of conflicting information.

    Also, do they all have the same Input specs? Everything seems to be 100-240v @ 50-60Hz, 120mA.

    The outputs, however, all seem to be 5 volts, with varying amperage.


    I'm getting a new phone by Monday - most likely the GS3 - and I don't want to take ANY risks of damaging the batteries life, charge capacity or ability to hold a charge.


    Thanks in advance!

    Your phone WILL come with a charger - use that and you'll have no problems.

    the best charger is connect your the USB through your PC, because PC power is better than any charger

    Not sure where you heard that. Your phone will actually charge a little faster plugged into the wall. At least that's always been my experience with the smartphones I've owned. You get a slower charge through you pc because it's going through a secondary device instead of directly to your phone.

    I agree with CR6, I sometimes charge my phone using my usb cable plugged into my pc/Xbox and it's alot slower than from a plug socket.
