AC adapter for Gear S3 charging base

Hi... can I use my galaxy S6 edge+ power adaper to connect my gear S3 charging base?

I obviously have the gear charger, but I have too many chargers on my desk (smartphone, gear, headset, powerbank) and I would like to use as less as possible.

The galaxy charger is the original Samsung charger and it's marked as 5V/2A output, while the gear charger is marked 5V/0.7A.

If I connect the gear's charging base with the galaxy adapter, the base will only request 0.7A of the 2 (max) supplied from the adapter or the adapter always "push" 2A and I can damage the charging base and/or the gear?

Thanks.

Hi there, fabyrd! :robothappy:

 

We'd recommend only using the correctly compatible power adaptor. It's possible that you may damage or reduce the performance of the charging unit if you use one with a higher power output.

 

Hope this helps!
