Default Another "should this charger work" question.

So we all know that any micro usb charge would work. I found that my Nexus 7 charger which is rated at 2A output charges my S3 much quicker than the 1A charger that came with it. Is this higher rated charger causing any battery degradation to occur? I's also like to find a higher rated car charger.

I think it's called "super charging" and it does indeed deteriorate the battery if used frequently. I'd just stick with the charger that came with the S3, the Nexus 7 has a much bigger battery to charge, that's why it need more power.
