is it ok to use a Samsung fast charging box to charge an iPhone? I haven't tried it yet but I'm wondering if it will charge faster like the iPad charger does. Just wondering if it will mess my iPhone up.

It's fine, but I doubt it will charge faster.

It will not charge faster. Fast Charging is a feature that the processor must have, in addition to the charging block, in order to take advantage of the quick charge.

Using a 2.1A charging brick will yield you slightly faster charge times (like one that comes with a tablet, like an iPad), but don't expect adaptive fast charging speeds like you get with a device with a Snapdragon CPU.

Pretty sure when he says charge faster he means how the iPad 10W charger charges faster than the 5W charger
He isn't talking about Quick Charge
