Hey, wanted to ask if it's okay to charge (no harm) with the samsung 5V (same) and 2A (I know it's much slower) now sure about the W. original charger.

(Same cable btw.)
Thanks for the answer!
ChuwiLover.

In principle there should be no problem. I charge my Hi10 Pro with an Aukey 5V 2A charger from the beginning and I have no problem whatsoever. It takes a little longer, true, but without problems.

Thank you.   Last thing, no need to check / worry about the Watt? Thanks.

Whenever it is below the original charger, no problem, but it will not work well if it is too low.

Well, you will find that watts=volts * current, so that is not really an issue. Chargers are supposed to deliver about 5 to 5.2 volts..

You cannot harm a device by using to little current. It is kinder to the battery to charge it slowly.
There are two things to watch for:
1. if the power supply delivers too little current, the chuwi may not charge while running. I notice this with the little 1/2 A charger I often use.
2. Chuwi (or the charging circuit they use) have not implemented the USB protocol properly. The device should not draw more power than the charger offers. The chuwi draws as much power as it can, causes chargers to get hot and can trip the charger's protection circuitry.
