Re: 0.5 amps USB 2 or 5 amps USB 3

The amp on a charger tells you how much power it can deliver. How much power that's actually used depends on the connected device. What's important to check is the voltage which should be 5.0V.

But please note that we can't guarantee compatibility with or functionality of 3:rd party products.

one problem through USB 3.0 uses a diffirent ending connectiion, that looks like a B shape almost, so that wont work in your phone, only USB 2 has USB to Micro-USB :/ there is no USB 3.0 to Micro-USB sadly Slightly frowning Face

 

USB 3.0 cable looks like this
