Hi, many thanksmuch for yours very informative answers.
Just to clarify:
I do not want to buy the charger from ISY. I use it for my now defective Samsung smartphone. Furthermore, I have several other chargers at various places of work and home, which I do not want to replace all when buying the FP3+ if somehow possible. On the one hand, for cost reasons, since the chargers from FP are not really cheap. On the other hand, this would also contradict FP’s recycling and circular economy philosophy, which I share (and which is the reason to buy this device despite various concerns).
In the following, I will try to summarize what I have learned so far:
If chargers and cables meet the specifications required according to FF’s FAQ (5 V, min 1 A, max 3A) you mentioned above too, they should work basically.
Without the QC 3.0 function, however, (very) long charging times are likely to occur as a rule, as without communication between the charging unit in the FP and the charger, no optimal adjustment of charging current and voltage is possible. Therefore the charging unit of the FP selects - for security reasons - a low charging power.
This non-optimal choice of charging voltage/charging current results in a higher degredation of the battery (compared to a system with QC 3.0), in addition to the longer charging time. However, the basic charging function should still work!
I was unsure about the last point, since FP writes in the FAQ mentioned above: “A charger and cable for the FP3/FP3+ M U S T H A V E the following specifications: … Qualcomm Quick Charge … version QC 3.0”.
I’m also an electrical engineer, but for ease of understanding I tried a colloquial summary. Am I doing the right thing? I am of course grateful for corrections, clarifications and additions.
