Question [Q] htc charger... quick help please

need a quick help here. i accidentally left my charger at work overnight, and someone decided that its his/her's now ....ive searched around and cant find place to buy the original charger that came with the m8. HTC's website doesnt have it. amazon doesnt. even ebay dont carry it.

i need of a charger. currently using a LG G2 charger thats rated 1.8a 5v .....but with a super slow cable.

is the LG charger okay to use? will it damage my m8 in the long run?

i am also buying this cable on amazon. buy or dont buy?

yes, i know there is a quickcharge 2.0 coming out. seeing as the cable is only $5 ...im thinking it will do for now.

thanks in advance

HTC charger outputs 5V and 1.5A. As long as output voltage is same, you can use different chargers. Ampere value just affects charging time. Higher ampere means faster charge. In long term, it can shorten your battery's life, but I don't think 0.3A can cause an observable affect

I use all sorts of chargers. They are pretty much standard now as far as micro usb goes. As said some are higher rated some are lower. I don't think there is any that will damage the phone as long as its designed for charging and is 5v.

I too use multiple chargers and cables and the only issue I've had is a double length cable that works for charging but won't allow connections to the pc

I charger capable of delivering more current will not damage your phone since the phone won't draw more current than it wants.
