The volts MUST match exactly, the polarity MUST match exactly, and the milliamps MUST be the same or more. The unit will use what it needs, even if to much is being offered. On the other hand, too few milliamps will BURN THE UNIT OUT!

So on top of loosing your equipment, you could loose your life also ... since it is a major fire hazard!

Clearly the voltage is not the same. The phone needs 7V, the charger is at 9V. Mismatching voltage will not work.

Using a power supply with a maximum current rated below what is required will result in 1) the supply voltage dropping, and 2) the device generating additional heat. Such low power requirements do not present a serious hazard, fire or otherwise. However, the higher voltage will likely seriously damage the phone. Had the supply you chose been rated at 7V 400mA, the phone would likely still charge, albeit much more slowly.

What is difference between 550 mah and 900 mah in mobile phone charger?

The charger with the 900ma output will charge the battery faster than the charger with a 500ma output. The phone with the 900mah battery will last longer between charges than that of the 500mah battery.

What is the power rating in a Nintendo 3ds?

The power rating is on the bottom of the 3ds, the power rating is 4.6V 4.1W, the power suply input is 4.6V 900mA. the DSI charger will work on a 3DS.

Is it possible to over use your power supply in the usb outlet?

Yes. A standard USB Plug can provide <at usb2.0> 500mA of power. Some devices if poorly made or malfunctioning could draw too much of that power over a chain of devices and cause the port to shut down. It will not, in most cases, damage the power. The port will detect an overage in power demand and shut itself down. Usb 3.0 allows for at most 900mA of power.

How much mAh capacity does a single AA battery have?

Zinc-carbon AA =400-900 mah Alkaline AA = 1700-3000 mah :: I believe the above answer to be misleading/misguiding, the question is "How much mA does a single AA battery have?" not how many mAh. in mA a single AA batter will have about 3.6mA to 4.0mA it is important to distinguish mA from mAh, if one were to connect a device that required 4.0mA to a power source of 400-900mA this would likely destroy the device. mAh deals more with how long the battery life lasts.

The usb and firewire bus standart and their possible impact on computer of the future?

USB AND FIRE WIRE BUS STANDARDS AND THEIR POSSIBLE IMPACT ON COMPUTERS OF FUTUREUNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS (USB):-A USB flash drive is a data storage device that consists of flash memory with an integrated Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface.· It is hot swappable.· USB version 1.1 provides maximum speeds of up to 1.5 MB/s while the version 2.0 is about 40 times faster.· Most weigh less than 30 g.· Drives of 256 gigabytes (GB) are also available, and storage capacities as large as 2 terabytesInternals of a typical USB flash drive1USB Standard-A plug2USB mass storage controller device3Test points4Flash memory chip5Crystal oscillator6LED7Write-protect switch (Optional)8Space for second flash memory chipUSB STANDARDS:-USB (1.x and 2.0):-USB 1.x provides low speed (up to 1.5 M Bit/s) at distances of 3m, and high speed (12 M Bit/s) at distances of 5m.Version 2.0 supports speeds to 480 M Bit/s at distances of up to 5m.In all cases a maximum of 5 hubs may be supported.USB (1.x and 2.0) provide a base current of 100MA and a maximum current of base X 5 = 500MA for powering of peripherals or battery charging applications.USB 3.0:-USB 3.0 provides speeds up to 5.0 G Bit/s - termed Super Speed in the specifications. USB 3.0 uses new Standard and Micro A and B plugs and receptacles using 9 pins to obtain the full Super Speed performance (5.0 G Bit/s). USB 3.0 increases the base current from 100MA (USB 2.0) to 150MA. The maximum load is 6 x base to 900MA (up from USB 2.0 x 5 = 500MA).USB 0.7 :-· Released in 1994· Voltage - Input2.7 V ~ 5.5 V· Current Limit= 700mA· Operating Temperature= - 40°C ~ 85°COTHER STANDARDS:-· USB 0.8: Released in December 1994.· USB 0.9: Released in April 1995.· USB 0.99: Released in August 1995.FIREWIRE BUS:-FireWire is High Performance Serial Bus, for connecting devices to your personal computer.
