    Hi,
    I have several chargers in the car currently. Most are 5v but differ in ampage. Question is can I use a 5v charger from my Jabra bluetooth that is at 750mA when the Hero wall socket charger outputs 5v 1A. Both are USB output. My guess is yes though it would charge a little slower.

    There shouldn't be a problem so long as the output voltage is 5V. It will be slower to charge than the mains charger but faster than USB, which outputs 500mA.

    Thanks Slug. Just as I thought.
