Hi I'm very new to GoPro. Just want to make sure, can I safely use mobile phone charger (mine's samsung) wall usb with 5v 2a output to charge hero5 black?
Because I've researched and actually found some contradictions:
- in https://gopro.com/help/articles/Question_Answer/Recommended-Chargers ; it says that "Our cameras and Battery BacPacs require USB chargers that output 5V and 1A. Using chargers that do not meet this requirement may negatively affect your camera or Battery BacPac" ..
- BUT in https://gopro.com/help/articles/How_To/How-to-Charge-Your-HERO5-Black it says "Connect the camera to a USB wall charger that outputs 5V 2A (ideal), or 5V 1A (minimum). NOTE: Charging times may vary based on the charger and its output." .
Thanks for the help!
