    its possible. My only suggestion is to see how many amps the iphone battery with accept at once, and then see how many the charger spits out. I think, for the most part they should be safe though.

    Go to your local Apple Store or Apple.com and check out the chargers there. That's the safest bet.

    I'm using an LP5400 which is very small but has 5400 MAH of power (AMAZING).

    I'm selling a brand new extra one I have on eBay for $49.95 (regular 59.95).

    They work really well and have a flash.. Anyways check out my auction.

    I would look into chargers that prevent overcharging. Some of them will indicate that they do so.

    The LP5400 I'm selling is perfectly compatible and does NOT overcharge ANY devices.
