Is it ok to use my Galaxy Note 4 charging head with my iPhone 6 plus?
I was wondering if it was ok to use my galaxy note 4 charging head with my iPhone 6 plus? The stock charger charges so slow was wondering if I could use one with a little higher output.

Re: iPhone 6 plus Charger
Anything that puts out more Amps than the iPad charger is overkill, IE any of the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 bricks. It won't hurt the battery, but the phone will only draw power at a certain rate.
I ended up getting an Anker two plug charger. Charges iPad and 6 Plus at the same rate.

From what I've read, the voltage is the important part of the equation as far as potential damage goes. You want the voltage to be what the device accepts. (All iOS devices are 5volts as far as I know.) The amps a charger puts out will only be used up to what the device can handle. So if you have a 4amp charger with 5 volts, it should not be an issue for any device (old iPhones, new iPhones, iPads, etc.) that uses 5 volt chargers.* The device should only pull what it can handle. If you hook up a 10 volt charger to the device, then that's when you'll probably run into issues. (*Disclaimer: I'm just regurgitating what I've read over the years, and I make no promise that you won't damage your devices by using a higher amp charger or any charger not designed for the device in question.)
