According to articles on HowToGeek and other sites, it can be dangerous to charge a phone with a USB-C connector by using a non compliant adapter cable and a USB type A charger or laptop outlet. I am wondering whether the same problem (drawing too much power for the cable to handle) occurs when using a micro USB to USB-C adapter like this one together with a generic cable?
My guess is that it is just as dangerous because the reasoning from the article can be applied to the adapter instead of the phone. Can someone shed some light on this? I am about to recommend an adapter like the one linked above to a friend and I don't want her to ruin her charger or worse.
This question is not a duplicate of this one, since I am specifically asking about using an adapter + an older cable instead of an adapter cable.
