Question about chargers
hi all, i have a question regarding chargers adapters and usb cables.
i like rapid chargers, i own a Samsung wall charging cube with and output of 2amps that shipped with my Galaxy Note 10.1 and i use it to rapidly charge my phones.
but my main question is that since you can use any usb to micro-usb cable to charge phones with this adapter, i want to know if the cable needs to be capable of transfering those 2amps or any cable is capable of doing that?
sorry if i did explain well but English is my second language.sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3

Re: Question about chargers
Yes the cable should be always be rated to handle whatever load is put thru it. I would look at it just as you would household wiring. If your house wiring is a 13 gauge wiring capable of 110 volts and your trying to use a smaller 15 gauge wire to push that 110 volts you could be over the limit. What does this mean in the end? Premature overheating of the wire/cable or worse.
Might be worth the few extra bucks to make sure your using a properly rated cable to handle the load.
