Hi all,
Is it possible to charge my MINI with iPhone adaptor (below pictured)
Or what happens if I charge it with right one?

Regards

You should be fine charging it with either one. The iDevice itself (mini here) will control the current flow to the battery, so you don't need to worry about a charger's ability to supply more current. Some report that they are getting faster charging times with >1A chargers, which would imply that the 1A charger is the limiting factor at least for some amount of the charging cycle. If so, I think you'd be better off with the one on the right.

Regards,
Tom

Thanks for your detailed reply
I understand that; no metter what is V and A value on both
I'd be better off with both.
What about charging from PC USB slot?

At best, your PC USB slot is probably putting out 0.5A, and may be as low as 0.1A. Your mini will probably not show any signs of charging (in the battery icon), but I think it will still be "trickle" charging. You're much better off using one of your wall chargers.

The short summary of my question was: Does it will be harfmfull for my iPad Mini to charge via 5,2 v - 2A adapter or via PC USB slot
Is there any damage in my mini's battery in long time?

I don't think either one will do any damage.
