    Is it bad if I used a Samsung charger with cable to charge my nexus 7? It takes about 2-3 hours of full, was wondering if you guys had the same problem

    Probably Not. Just take a look at the fine print on the charger and make sure the output is within reason (5V, no more than about 2 amps), and you should be fine.

    what tweak said- if the output is the same, you should be ok.

    if I need a quick boost, I'll use any charger... however, for long term/repeated charging, I will always recommend using the OEM charger, though. why risk it?
