    Can I use the M9 slow charger with the Spigen ultra slim usb-c to micro usb adaptor on my 10?

    I would say with USB-C definitely use the manufacturer provided charger only. It's not good to mix and match cables and chargers and until USB-C is more standard that all I would use. Just my opinion

    I understand the reasons for recommending the original charger only, but it's not practical for some. I've used numerous charger and cable combinations so far without issue. It's highly likely that your M9 charger will work fine, but need to understand that you're doing it at your own risk. If any damage results, your warranty status is uncertain.

    I've been using the M9 slow charger, the M9 QC 2.0, an Anker QC 2.0 battery stick and car charger, and the 10 QC 3.0 charger all with a different cable than what was provided. They all work great! The phone clearly states when a quick charger is connected, so it obviously knows when a regular charger is connected as well.

    Does the charger with the 10 always quick charge when plugged into the phone?

    Yup! It's a QC 3.0, so it charges up really fast. There are different opinions on whether or not quick charging your phone all the time shortens the battery lifespan, so I mix in the regular M9 charger sometimes. It came with the phone, so I'm sure it's fine.... but the phone does get a little warmer when quick charging, so I don't use it every single time I need to charge up.

    Thanks. I going to use the charger that came with the 9 and connect the Spigen ultra slim usb-c to micro usb adaptor to my 10 from time to time.

    See, I just never could use a charger that didn't come with my phone/tablet. The Nexus 9 and M9 chargers look identical, but I even marked them so I knew which was plugging into what! That being said, I will never use a foreign charger with any device I own. Too risky when I fork out $650 a year on a phone.

    I think you're fine using a charger of the same brand of phone no matter which recent model.

    Yeah, no. Completely different hardware now. USB-C, QC 3.0. Use the one that came with it and get a car charger from HTC

    I'm using the stock Quick Charger, as well as a spare Cloetech QC 3.0 I bought on Amazon. I'm also using my old QC 2.0 chargers, including a car charger. They all work perfectly.

    I've been using several different chargers as well, but only with the cable that came with the phone. No issues.

    Last night I used a cheap extension cable with the stock cable and charger. To my surprise, it still quick charged. Less than an hour to charge from 20% to 100%.

    I have yet to try using my m7 charger.

    Yes they will all work. It's just software determines the rate of charge and which amperage to use. If the software gets confused the electricity is still coming and that's how cords and chargers get burnt up. I'm just saying better safe than sorry

    If that were the case, then all of these other charger and cable companies like Anker and Aukey would be out of business. There's absolutely zero difference when charging my 10 with all of the chargers I listed above, and I'm using a USB-C converter as well. Hell, I bought an Innergie charger for my Razer laptop, and it does the job as long as the voltage and specs check out.

    Exactly. "as long as the voltage and specs check out". USB-C is still new and not all are created equal.

    I think the only real concerns here are with other USB-C chargers because of the USB-C specs and Qualcomm's way of varying the bus voltage that doesn't sit well with some people (which is a valid concern). But the older chargers are only going to give you 5VDC at a maximum current draw of 1.5A or 2A, which is well within the specs that this phone can take.

    The newest device in my home (save for the 10) is my wife's S6Edge+ and I've slapped this phone into a half-dozen of our various chargers without issue.

    I'm using my old M8 charger and some Blackbery chargers (new and old) with the Spigen adapters and they work great. Obviously not QC3.0, but I don't care about that for an overnight charge.

    I use the charger that came with the phone. I also bought an Anker QC 3.0 charger from Amazon that I use as well. I use the car charger I got from Verizon. No issues with either charger so far.

    Nah, one charge isn't enough. I use one in my lounge, one in my bedroom, another in my office, one in the car, one at my partner's house and keep two in a bag because i also travel for work. Until they start putting eight cables in with a new phone I will always buy others. I've bought some 6ft nylon cables from Amazon and they are great, charge quickly and reach a long way if the plug socket is a way away.

    I'm using a generic Quick charger in my car along with an IBOLT USB-C dock, works fine so far. I've been careful not to use any USB-PD chargers of course.
