    Default The iPhone 5 And old chargers. Anyone have the same issue
    So I have tons of the original wall chargers from all the devices that I have had in the past. I have them plugged in to almost every outlet in my house.

    So the other day I'm sitting on the couch and I plug my new phone in and I started trying to use it when I noticed that the screen was not as responsive. It's almost like the slider would stutter and stick or not respond at all. @ first I thought it was an issue with the phone and was going to get pissed but then I decided to try and use the new stock charger and see if that would make a difference, I had no issue with the new charger.

    So i'm thinking their is a difference in current or something along those lines to affect the functionality of the touch screen. I'm no electrical engineer or anything even close but I assume if I continue to use the chargers that it may have a bad effect on the internals over time.

    Anyone have the same issue, or experience the same type of deal.

    the USB charging adapters put out +5 volts. even tho they changed from a 30pin to an 8pin cable, it shouldnt make a difference.
    you should be able to use all the USB wall chargers for almost any device that charges with USB cable without issue.

    I don't understand what could be causing this issue then. I'm going to try and see if I can isolate it to maybe just one wall charger that is going bad, or see if it is all of the unit's that I currently have with the exception of the one that was shipped with my iPhone 5. Thanks for the input on the voltage though, that rules out that theory.
