GoPro wall charger

Hey ive just received my gopro hero 8 from amazon and when i came to charge it, i see there is only a usb cable, and no wall charger.
I’ve looked in the instructions book and it’s basically saying - if you use a charger which is not gopro’s original wall charger, then the camera can be damaged.
Now if thats the case - then you should provide the wall charger along with the camera because otherwise it just makes no sense.
Now I don’t know what to do,
Do i charge my camera with my iphone wall charger, or do i need to buy gopro’s original wall charger separately or what ?

Re: GoPro wall charger

You can use any charger that outputs at 5V / 1-2A. An iPhone charger works great, and so does the USB port on your computer.

Re: GoPro wall charger

I use an Anker Brick to charge just about all my stuff. Phones, GoPro's, remotes, and just about everything else I got. Plenty of power, well built, well designed.
