There are some drawbacks for long term use of higher amps…. The faster (higher amps) a charger you use the faster your phone will charge. Fast charging cycles affect the longevity of the battery. The higher amps the charger is, the quicker the battery will start being less efficient. If you use a 2 amp charger every day, the battery may only last 200 charging cycles before you start noticing that your battery is getting weak.
