Hi guys, I have an old Griffin charger and now I'm wondering if I can use it to charge my iPhone without actually damaging the device or the battery. Here's the technical details of the adapter:

AC Power Supply
Model: 17B061001
Input: 100-240V~ 50-60Hz 0.2A
Output: 5.0V 500mA
File NO: E213987
Date Code:1005
I.T.E Power Supply
For I.T.E Use Only

17B061001, iOS 4, Griffin AC Power Supply

    Be brave. It will work or not. I'm sure the iPhone is clever enough to ignore silly voltages offered to it. And 5 volts is perfectly correct.

    Normal USB power is 5.0V 500mA (2.5W), so it will work fine.

    But it it won't charge as fast as it would from the official charger (or a number of 3rd party chargers) which supply double the power. (5.0V 1A (5W))
