# Can I use a charger with higher amperage?

You can actually use higher amperage chargers, like the kind that come with tablets, to get your phone charged up in less time than it would if you charged via USB or using the charger the phone came with, and it won’t cause a problem. An iPhone charger delivers 5 Watts (5 volts at 1000 mA).

Is it better to have more cold cranking amps?

Well, that’s still very important, because cold, cranking amps tells you the ability of the battery to do work right now. And the higher the cold cranking amp rating of the battery, the better it is for your car. But, don’t get that confused with cranking amps – CA. The cranking amps are rated at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

## Is a 2.1 amp charger fast?

Most tablets require 2.1 amps to charge at a standard rate. Any time you apply a higher charge rate to the device, you can rapid-rate charge that device (e.g., using a 2.1-amp charger on a smartphone that requires only a 1-amp charger) This means the device can charge up to 20% faster than its standard rate charge.

## Do the AMPS matter?

So the the volts must be correct for a product to work. Current is supplied by a power supply or charger. A product (e.g an iPhone/iPad) consumes current. If the power supply can supply more than 2.1Amps this doesn’t matter as the product will only take 2.1Amps.

## Can you use a 90w charger instead of a 45w?

If the output voltage is the same, you can use a 90W charger on a 45W laptop BUT cannot use a 45W charger on a 90W laptop. On the condition of same voltage, laptops and other devices will never overpowered. The amps you saw is the maximum one adapter is capable of, not the rated current.

## Can you increase amperage?

Because voltage equals the amperage multiplied by the resistance in a circuit, if the voltage remains constant and the resistance is dropped, the amperage across the circuit must increase. If the circuit’s resistance remains unchanged, the amperage in a circuit can be increased by increasing the voltage.

## How many amps are in a fast charger?

As we established earlier, the regulator inside your phone only allows so much power in at a time. Quick Charge devices allow more than your typical chargers, without damaging the battery. So, while an older device might only support a 5 volt, 1 amp charger, Quick Charge devices can use a 9 volt, 2 amp charger.

## What happens when there is too much current in the circuit?

The current that goes to appliances must also pass through this strip of wire. If a short circuit occurs—or even if too many appliances get hooked up to one wire so that too much current flows—the wire in the fuse heats up quickly and melts, breaking the circuit and preventing a fire from starting.

## How many amps does a computer USB port output?

A USB port can give 500 mA output max provides 5 Volts x 0.5 Amo = 2.5 Watts. With real world efficency losses (nominally 80~90% efficent), you can provide a Higher Voltage with Less Current, or a Lower Voltage with More Current, but you can’t create powerout of nowhere.

## How many amps is a light bulb?

In the United States, most household appliances work at 110 Volts. So the calculation is divide the Wattage by 110. For example: A 40 Watts bulb draws 0.36 Amps to operate. A 60 Watts bulb draws 0.54 Amps to operate.

## How many amps does it take to charge an Iphone?

That’s because the difference between the iPhone and iPad adapters is the rated amperage. An iPad charge brick is rated to handle 2.1 amps, while the smaller iPhone charger is rated for just 1 amp.

## How many amps is a fan?

Low Amps. The majority of modern ceiling fans use less than an amp, averaging between 0.5 and 1 amp, depending on the model and the setting. One amp drawn by a ceiling fan is equivalent to about 120 watts. Low settings use less amperage while higher settings use more.

## How long does it take to charge a car battery at 2 amps?

A basic charger usually charges at around 2 amps – and so needs 24 hours to deliver the 48 amps needed to fully charge a flat, 48 amp hour battery. But there is a wide range of chargers with different charge rates on the market – from 2 to 10 amps.

## How many amps does it take to charge a cell phone?

It depends on how fast you charge it. If you are using usb some ports can charge faster than others. I think you can get as much as 2 amps at 5 volts which is 10 watts from a wall powered charger and up to 1.5 amps from usb which is 7.5 watts.

## How many amps does a laptop use?

Most likely, all you will need is 5 amps. Look at your laptop power adapter (the black brick). On the backside it should tell you what the power draw is in amps. Most likely its 1 to 2 amps.

## Can you use a 90 watt adapter on a 65 watt laptop?

Yes, you can use a 90 watt ac adapter, a.k.a power charger, for your 65 watt-compatible laptop. It will actually charge your battery faster. But, and this is a big but, you cannot use a 19 Volt ac adapter on an 18.5 Volt-laptop.

## Are all micro USB phone chargers the same?

All USB cords carry the same 5V, regardless of if it’s got a 30-pin head or a microUSB plug, whether it’s first-party or third. That means DC chargers are now brand agnostic; if the volts, amps, and connectors are compatible, an Apple wall wart can charge an HTC just as easily as a Samsung.

## How much voltage is needed to charge a mobile phone?

For mobile phones and other mobile devices like the Kindle that charge with USB, the voltage is typically 5V. A laptop charger might be as high as 20V or 25V. You can usually find the voltage your device needs on the device itself, on the battery, or if all else fails, on the manufacturer’s web site.

## How many amps is an IPAD charger?

Apple gives you the 2.1 Amp 10 Watt charger so it won’t take a day to charge your iPad due to the battery being much bigger. Most USB Hubs produce the .5 Amps even though they have an external power supply you plug into the wall.

## How many watts is 12 amps?

For example 12 watts/12 volts = 1 amp. Converting Amps to Watts. The conversion of Amps to Watts at fixed voltage is governed by the equation Watts = Amps x Volts. For example 1 amp * 110 volts = 110 watts.

## Can I charge my Iphone with a 2.1 amp charger?

It is possible, however, to deduce from the web page Apple created “Charge the battery in your iPad,” that Apple is aware of this capability and endorses it. Simply increasing the current from .5 amps (USB charging cable) or 1 amp (the bundled iPhone charger) to 2.1 amps (the iPad charger) boosts the charging speed.

## What is a DC IN 5v?

Fosmon’s US AC (100-240V) to DC (5V / 1A) Power Supply Adapter is a convenient, universal power adapter that can be used to charge or supply power to many different electronic devices.
