    Can I use a G2 charger on the G5? I want to know if slow charging is any better on the battery.

    Yes you can. Other than being slower, I don't think it will effect the battery one way or the other.

    Li-Ion batteries do better on incremental charges than on deep cycles (letting the batter drain very low), but i don't think the speed of the charge will have any effect. Now, that said, some rapid charging can warm up the battery and heat is not electronics friend. But, you'd have to be rapid charging in the sun on a hot day with GPS and all the radios enabled for it to get hot enough to cause any damage. ;) Besides all modern phones have thermal circuits which will shut the phone down long before it fries anything.

LG G5

The LG G5 was launched April 1st, 2016. This was some of LG’s biggest innovation yet with the introduction of dual rear cameras, always-on display, and an interesting modular design concept. The modular design never caught on.
