Nexus 7.2 charger
« on: August 20, 2013, 06:33:35 PM »
Are the AC chargers for the 2012 and 2013 versions interchangeable?

As as usual the charger cords for the Nexus are very short. So long ago I purchased a charger with a longer cord for the 2012 Nexus and wonder if I can now use it with the newer 2013 Nexus. It looks like the two supplied chargers might be different. The older nexus charger is 5 volts and 2 amps. The newer Asus supplied AC charger specs are hard to read but they seem to have different voltage/amperage written on them.

Does anyone know?

Looks like 5.2V, 1.35A.

Charge your Nexus 7 (2013)
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

Thank you.

Does that make them interchangeable?

The old n7 will charge slower at 1.3 a. The new n7 will draw only the amps it needs, shouldn't matter. Either will charge from any standard USB source at differing rates of charge. Even from the .5 a. computer plug-in. Check the warranty to be sure.

Both chargers will work just fine for new Nexus.  Older charger is rated at a slightly higher capacity (2.0a vs 1.35a) so new nexus might charge faster depending on its power requirement.  I generally use the old charger -- fully charged from 10% in about 3 hours.

That's what I thought. I was just worried that the higher amperage might damage something on the new nexus.
