Kindle voyage charger question.
« on: July 07, 2016, 12:01:58 PM »
Hey guys, so I recently got a kindle voyage and I was wondering if I could use the usb plug that came with my samsung S7 to charge it? I know that charger is a fast charger will that cause any damage to the kindle?

My understanding is devices nowadays are designed to draw the power they need no matter the rated power of the charger. I've used pretty much any charger with my Voyage -- from my phone, my tablet, the one that came with it -- and had no issues. The only difference is that it may take longer if it's a lower wattage charger.

That is what I thought too. I just wanted to check and see what you guys thought and if anyone had heard any different? I don't see the need to spend $20 on the amazon charger when I have so many charging bricks laying around that are all good quality not knock off cheap charging bricks.
