Using a different USB power adapter

support

#1

I need to plug a camera into a small area and need to use a shorter/different adapter. Is there any problem with using a USB adapter plug that is designed for cell phone/device charging? Anything special I need to consider?


#2

The adapter that comes with Wyzecam is 1 Amp (1000 mA). The adapter you substitute should be the same or greater. I doubt you will find a cellphone adapter that’s lower power, but there are a few 500 mA ones out there.

Thanks!

I have kind of same question with specific information. I have adapter which outputs 12V, 1.5A.

Would it work with Wyze Cam v2?
If so, how many Wyze Cam v2 I can run simultaneously from the adapter?

These cams need FIVE VOLTS (5V DC)
Twelve volts would undoubtedly kill any 5-volt device very quickly.
DO NOT connect!
