The OEM power adapter that comes with the phone is Euro and the adapter that was sent with it is sketchy so I'm looking to buy a legitimate adapter to plug into my wall.

My question is what's the highest rated adapter i should buy? The Euro one is rated at 1.5 amps but for some reason all i can find are hardwired style power cables instead of the USB style.

2 amp versions are plentiful but I'm not sure if that .5 amp is going to swell my battery overtime.

Any suggestions?

Anything around 3A is the maximum

Charging at 1200mah is the max speed too for safety and 3 volts should be good because Z2 battery is 3 volts

Edit- it needs to be 5 volts and 3 Amps max

Battery is 3V but the charging current needs to be 5v

Get a quality (Sony, Samsung, Apple, etc) charger with at least 1A to 3A.

I have an old charging block from an iPad. It's rated at 5.1 volts and 2.1 amps.

Would this be safe to use?

Yeah but after spending $600 on a phone that didn't come with the right charger... I figured is double check 😊

It'll work great, apple chargers are among some of the best as long as they are genuine.
