    Power Supply

    I have an original Galaxy Tab that has a 5v 2amp power supply. In addition I have an S3 and a Galaxy Y Duos both of which are supplied with 5v 1amp power supplies. You can charge the Tab with a 1 amp supply but it takes for ever. I don't want to cart upteen power supplies around so the question is, is the 2 amp supply usable on the S3 / Y Duos or will the extra amp screw up the phone / battery?

    No, the device will take as much ampage as it needs.
    The problem, as you have found out, is the other way round. Where the max amp is too low then not enough power is provided.
