Question,

I charge my GR with any USB adapter that happens to be around (car lighter socket adapters, power banks, all sorts of usb wall adapters, computer usb...), hasn't caused a problem in 2.5 years.

So basically we can use smartphone accessories/charger for GR.

Yes, the only inconvenient is that you have to use the Ricoh USB/AV cable.

I wish they would put a standard micro USB port or USB3 port in the next iteration. One less cable to worry about.
