Has anyone used a normal home or auto charger on their G6 safely?

2018-12-18, 14:40 PM

Motorola cautions against using anything but their Turbo charger, but it seems like a normal charger shouldn't cause any trouble - just charge at a slower rate. Anybody tried it yet?

I cannot speak for ,"Fast charge" phones per se but I can see no reason why a Standard charger cannot be used.The battery won't care.In fact it may even prolong the life of the Battery.

They caution against any other charger because it's not a Moto product.  There can't warranty any other products but their own...especially with all the knockoff garbage on the market.

 

My phone is a z force droid, and it works fine on Aukey chargers.

I was thinking more along the lines of using the cable that comes with the phone and plugging it into either a standard USB wall or auto charger. When you connect the phone to your PC via USB, I'm thinking it's kinda the same thing.

There won't be a problem.You can use USB charger blocks as well.Lenovo are just covering their bases whn they recommend their own chargers etc.

 

Good read here,
