Is a 65 watt power adapter OK to use with Hero8 Dual Battery Charger?

[ New ]

Will a 65 watt USB-C Power Delivery power adapter damage either the GoPro Hero8 Dual Battery Charger or the Hero8 battery?

 

Or, must one use a ~30 watt power adapter similar to the GoPro Supercharger?

Hello @sharpflame60727. The recommended input to charge the camera battery is 5V, 1-2A. What is the voltage-current output of the power adapter? The Supercharger outputs up to 3A through the fast-charging USB-C port so a current rating of 3A can be used especially if fast charging is necessary.

Ahh, of course, I should have listed the voltage-current specs of the 65W adapter I have.  It is 5 Volt DC at 3 amp through the USB-C PD port.

 

Seems that my adapter is equivalent to the Supercharger and ok to use.  Thanks for the prompt response.
