    I know nothing about this shit and have a battery pack that uses a 12v 1.5A adapter to charge it but the adapter is not working properly. I have another charger that is 12V 5A...what's the worst that can happen?

    Nothing. As long as volts are equal and amps are higher you are fine. It'll work.

    V=IR

    If Volts are constant and the amps (I) are changed, then resistance (R) is correspondingly changed. It's fine to charge.

    Well, pumping 5 amps into a small, totally dead battery may not be fine. :jj: He should be fine but I'd like to know the battery type.
