Charging mobiles with laptop chargers

Just a thought, as all my laptops are now USB C/Thunderbolt, when in the office i just use the 60 or 100W laptop charger for my laptop and ZFOLD4.

Seems fine, and only shows as fast charging, but wonder if the mobile devices manage the current/charging level or if this is not a good idea.

@Obsydian: This is fine. Our Galaxy mobile devices will only charge within their specifications, so as the Z Fold4 supports 25W fast charging, it will only draw that wattage from your charger, therefore there are no negative effects to using a higher wattage charger. We do, however, recommend using genuine Samsung chargers where possible.

Thanks @AndrewL it's only when I use my horrible Dell work laptop, if I use my Samsung laptop, it's a Samsung charger and cable.

Just need work to offer Samsung laptops as well as Dell and Apple.
