    Can't see any reason why not. Although the 6P is a Type-C connector and other is Micro-USB, so you'll have to use the appropriate cords. I charge a few different things with an Oppo USB charger like a Ramos tablet, BT headphones, BT speaker,

    The Nexus 6P comes with a USB-C AC power adapter; it only has a Type C plug. You can't plug a standard USB cable in to it, it has to be Type C. And, as @mikedt mentioned, the Nexus 7 uses a Micro-USB connector.

    So no, you can't use that charger to power your tablet.

    You can, however, get a USB-A to USB-C cable so that you could charge your 6P (although more slowly) off the same charger you use for the Nexus 7.

    So if I use a USB-A to USB-C cable to connect my 6P to this...

    ...it will charge, but just not quick-charge? Is that correct?
    Does charging the 6P with these slower charging accessories do any long-term harm to the battery that will cause it to eventually drain faster?

    Can you explain to the non-tech-savvy, the gist of what this article says regarding quick-charge?

    There is a technology on phones that do not use USB-C called "Quick Charge" which Qualcomm chips support. The Nexus 5X and 6P do not use that "Quick Charge" standard, it was disabled on the new phones. This is largely because USB-C has a different form of quick charging built into the USB-C standard, and it is that form of quick charging that the Nexus uses.
