    Would there be any issue charging iPhones/iPad Mini via this type of USB port?
    Similar to this

    Home Depot Link

    I'm thinking there wouldn't be, but decided to ask since I've used only Apple chargers in the past.

    Q about amperage.
    The specs on the link I included says 3.3 amp for USB charging power.
    Is that a concern? To much available power. Will iPhone/iPad regulate that?

    No need to regulate. 5V matches.

    The higher current is not an issue.
