    I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet on Craigs List and it arrived with the usb charger cord but no ac adapter. I have a cell phone ac adapter with the usb connection. The voltage output is 5.1 volts. Replacement ac adapters have a 5.0 voltage output. Is it OK to use this adapter?

    Welcome to the guest forums!

    That voltage is well within manufacturer specs. However, please check the amperage. Most tablets require charging current of 1 amp or more. You need to make sure the charger says at least 1A.

    Hope to see you around the forums!
