galaxy tab charger for iphone 4

Hi,

I have an iphone 4, lost my charger but have the USB cable. I recently bought a samsung galaxy tab. The voldate for the tab is 5V and 2A where as the iphone 4 according to spec is rated at 5V and 1A. My question is, if i tried to charge my iphone 4 with that, is there any long term damage to my iphone 4... i havent really plugged it in yet for fear of exploding my iphone 4 - can anyone throw some light if anything can go wrong...

Not sure about the voltages but the some iPad chargers are compatible with the iPhones but I thought the Tab and iPhone cables were actually different? They look similar but looked like different widths to me.

nope the cables are different - but the thing is just like the iphone charger - there is a charging block and the cable - for the samsung tab also same thing and the output for the charging block is a USB output so you can hook up your iphone cable to the samsung charging block and potentially use it with your iphone..

i am not electronically savvy and thats why wanted to confirm it with anyone who knows this kind of stuff..

You can use it to charge anything with a USB plug.
