Depends on how they wired the other end of the cable to those others. If they put the leads in series, they are stacking the voltage, and yes. Kaboom. If they are putting them in parallel, then the phone will charge at the maximum speed it was designed to. Nothing more.
@Jakespeare, wouldn't it be the other way around? I'm kinda drunk right now, but wouldn't connecting them in series just make a longer cord?
@Jakespeare, i saw the vid, it only charges at maximum speed. The vid is anti climatic
@110100100, not sure what you are referring to, but op is right
@Darth Panserbjorne, wait...no. loads in series would mean voltage drops across all loads. 110 is all coming from the same supply and there's 1 load. if you take 5 hot wires from different outlets in your house and put them all together its still only 110 with a common. he's not suddenly gonna have 3k volts because he's got 30 plugs. now to use another 110 as a common would give you a 240 plug but that chargers coil would melt before any load was applied anyway.
@JoeJoestar, the difference here is that each charger is going to have it's own transformer that reduces the voltage to around 10V. Because they supply a fairly large current, and still use good portion of the voltage available, it wouldn't likely equal the sum of the chargers' possible output, but they would add together to a point, and that point would definitely spell bad news for the charging circuit of the phone at minimum
@JoeJoestar, incorrect. If you put a circuit in series, it doubles the voltage and the current remains the same. If you put a circuit in parallel, the current doubles and the voltage remains the same.
@Jakespeare, ??? if you take 120 and put 3 loads in series, each load is 40v. unless i miss understand what you're sayin
@Darth Panserbjorne, I had to break out the textbook on that one, so now I get what you mean, and thats thats correct, but the windings would likely be toast before proper load could be applied. thats alot of power for coils not meant to handle it.
@JoeJoestar, wiring the connector ends of the chargers in series means the difference between each is only 5VDC but the difference to the phone port (across all of them) is 5VDC x (how ever many cords there are). So if there are 20 chargers it's 100 VDC. Kaboom.
In parallel it would be 5 VDC with (max amps of each) x (# cords.)
The only way that wouldn't quite apply is if the chargers are all that cheap kind where it's a capacitive dropper and uses the same ground. Then it's basically impossible to wire them in series.
It could kaboom in parallel depending on how they interpret instructions to send high current or what. Pretty sure the phone determines how to charge and the charger just supplies the power and doesn't do squat. If this was a fast charge phone it could signal to send the full 3 A or 9 or 12 VDC. That could mess things up.
Hopefully, so you can switch to Android
@Ald0bii, why do you care what phone other people use?
@big freedom, I don't. But from what I've seen from iPhones is that they are behind in technology but is sold in premium price. Android phones however do have premium advanced features for high prices. But yeah I don't have to care
@big freedom, someone uses an iphone
@Ald0bii, the downside is that android, in particular google-based androids, unabashedly scrape your user habits and trawl for your personal information for use in training their engine and similar products. apple has shown time and again, despite whatever you may think of them in terms of price, hegemony, uniformity, or innovation, that they ACTUALLY keep your information secure. one always has to ask where a companys revenue stream comes from. if apple products are so exorbitantly expensive that they dont have a compelling incentive to sell or maliciously use my data, i am comfortable with that trade. the cheaper a product is in intelligent systems, the harder you should squint at where precisely their revenue comes from.

@TheSecretSavage, sure. But I don’t care, at all, what other people use. It makes absolutely no impact on my life.
I’m always curious why people feel the need to jump into a tribe. “My side good, other side bad”.
@Hoban Washburne, you know that Apple does the same but they just keep the data for their own use. They're developing a new search algorithm so that they don't need to use Google and can keep all that for themselves. So you never have to leave the perfectly groomed walled garden. You'll never have to see the competing products because you already have the perfect device in the perfect ecosystem along with the best sounding headphones period.
@mas2de, thats a baseless conspiracy theory
At least that’s what it takes to make the phone explode, not just putting it into your pocket like some brands 🙄
Gotta have the fastest hand in the west to charge in one second
Yes Rico kaboom
