Can you charge the Touch or other devices with the Vox charger?

So there's some special stuff, whatever that is, that lets the Vox know that the 2 amp USB wall charger is attached.

But can you use the Vox charger to charge the Kobo Touch or other devices? Obviously I'm reluctant to test this.

Edited: Added the word Kobo in front of Touch.

How would you do that? The touch doesn't connect with a micro-usb...

Yes it does. And I have used a very similar (same juice numbers) wall plug to charge mine.

The Vox charger works fine on my KT. It also works on the Verso rechargeable light.

Theoretically, since Micro USB is a standard, there shouldn't be any reason why it wouldn't work. The Vox charger is just capable of delivering more current if a device needs it. I did notice that the Vox charger doesn't trigger the Touch's USB detection (unlike another USB charger I have).
