Which wall adapters can I use with dual battery charger?

I purchased the dual battery charger for my HERO 5 batteries, and it is taking quite a while to charge them. Right now, I have the charger plugged into a 5W iPhone wall adapter (5V, 1Amp) and the USB-C cable that came with the device. I was wondering if I could plug the charger into my 10W iPad wall adapter (5.1V, 2.1Amp) without damaging the batteries. If so, would this charge the batteries faster?

 

Thanks!

@loyalstar8726 - They're designed for 5V 2A or 5V 1A chargers. Our Supercharger is going to be the fastest way to safely charge your batteries.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Which wall adapters can I use with dual battery charger?

The fast charging standard on Type C cables is that it only works with Type C to Type C cable. So the cable provided with the camera itself cannot fast charge your camera batteries. Although there might be some change in charge times using a different wall adapter but that isn't recommended

@stalkhold and @loyalstar8726, the Supercharger can in fact be used if you're talking about the HERO5 Dual Battery Charger. The Supercharger comes with the USB-C to USB-C cable.

Hi @tomgfromcanada,

 

If you are using this with the HERO5 camera or the Super Charger then you should be good to go!

 

Best,
