Will a 2.1 amp charger damage my I phone 6 s plus

My alarm clock has 2 usb ports to charge phones, iPads, tablets, etc. My car charger also has 2 usb ports. One is 1.8 amps the other is 2.1. Of the two, the 2.1 works much faster. However the 1.8 am as well as the original iPhone charger that came with my phone seem to take forever to charge my phone.

    I've used a 2.5 amp charger to charge my iPhone and I've seen no problems yet. As far as I know, a lot of USB chargers are 2.1 amp and should not damage your phone.

  • I've noticed charging my iPhone using higher amps(2.4A compared to standard 1A power adaptor) heats it up faster.
    And it's a fact that heat is bad for batteries.

    So my conclusion from this is - stay away from "fast" chargers to have a better battery life.
