Someone told me that you shouldn't charge your tablet with your phone charger,it will ruin it. Is this true? They're both Samsung.

It should be fine, just slower (depending on the rating of the two chargers).

It's possible for the tablet to draw more power than can be provided by a weaker charger, so for it to charge well you should ideally have it powered off or at least idle.


Yes you can and it's normal to understand that it's not a original charger for your device.

So it must be take extra time for charging.


Yes, you can charge but you will face some problem like slow charging , less battery backup, and also other battery related problem in future or heating of device
