I know the cases where the cable has more output amperes, here and here, but I am interested in if you can use cables with less output amperes with the devices. I have an universal charger Vivanco PAU 1500 which has 1500 mA / 5V. I have two devices
- Buffalo NAS LS-WSX1.0TL/R1 5V / 2.6A
- D-link DIR-645 5V / 2.5A (I have a cable 5V / 2.5 A for this but I would like use it for Buffalo)
So I would like to use the configuration
- Buffalo NAS LS-WSX 5V / 2.6A (5V / 2.5A cable here). Is this 0.1A difference enough significant here?
- D-link DIR-645 5V / 2.5A (5V / 1.5A cable here). What do you think about this 1.0A difference?
The problem is that both cables are too little for both devices. I am worried that the cables and their resistances can break if I use them here. Can you use a charger less output ampere than the device needs?
