    I have a smart charger that charges my iPhone 5s with 1 amp and the same charger charges my iPhone 7 plus with 2 amps, is this bad for my battery because the standard charger is only 1 amp.

    I've been charging my iPhones with a 2.1A charger for years with no problems at all. You'll be fine.

    Your phone will only draw as much current as it can handle to charge the battery.

    It's fine. Don't worry about it.

    It's a good question, but other have stated above, no concerns.

    I had the same question. So it's ok to charge your iPhone with the iPad charger?

    This comes up EVERY year. You can charge any Apple device with any 5 V DC charger. 5 Volts is the pressure, 2 Amps, etc., is the LIMIT of what the charger can produce. The device will take what it wants to charge. If you search, you will find tons of threads on this...


    More:

    The standard iPhone charger is what it is because it's cheap and gets the job done. The iPad charger is larger because it needs to be. (Have you ever SEEN an iPad battery(ies)?). The iPhone charger takes forever to charge an iPad. Either are technically fine for either device, it's a matter of time. The battery *may* get a little warmer with more current inrush, but (1) it doesn't really matter and (2) if it matters after a few years, who still has their device then? :)
