LEARNING EXPERIENCE OF THE WEEK
  • All USB Wall Chargers Are NOT Created Equal



Through a weird sequence of events, I became suspicious of the wall charger which I was using with this flashlight.

Tried a different one, randomly chosen, lying around in another room.

Full and complete charge; six hours ? Four ? Whatever it was, the thing is now usable. Shucks; It's great ! Exactly what I need.

WalMart detractors, sorry to write these words, but this fine 1300 Lumen flashlight from WalMart is just plain good. They have such great products, and their people are superb examples of retail professionals. What a great place WalMart is. I'm going back there as soon as I can. WalMart will make you happy, healthy, and successful in the stock market.

Clicked around and became a thirty-minute internet expert on USB chargers, and DUH; some of those things will only produce half an amp. Talk about cheapskates !

I'm guessing that I was using just such a half-amp charger.

I'm further guessing that my random choice thing here is a 2.4 Amp charger.

I am seeing 4 amp chargers and one 5.1 Amp USB wall charger advertised for sale.

Just wondering; Is there any advantage to a higher Amp charger ?

Is there any danger ?
