    Apologies for what must be a repeat question, but as a complete tech-*****, and someone who has already ruined one phone by using an incompatible charger (or at least, I think that's what happened), I would greatly appreciate if anyone could reassure me that I'm not about to ruin another phone.

    I bought a generic Samsung charger for my LG G2 phone (I live in Cambodia, I tried getting the 'real deal' but the LG shop here is always out of stock and I can't wait 2 weeks for a shipment!)

    The output on the original LG G2 charger was 5.0V / 1.8A.
    This new charger's output says 5.0V / 2A.

    Am I going to ruin a brand new phone with this new charger?

    HELP! I'm so embarrassed.

    There should not be no problem. The phone is the one that regulates how much power it gets.
    But, just to be on the safe side, check your phone's manual to see if there's anything on using a charger rated for higher Amps.

    I've personally used different brands of chargers with my devices and never had a problem.
