Will my phone wall plug charger that outputs 5.0V...550mah charge my gopro?

gopro says it needs to be 5.0V...1ah; will this work and just take a little longer? or will it fry my hero?

thanks

it'll do as you say, just take longer too charge. As your going to be drawing the maximum out of the plug you might want to monitor the temperature of it while charging

I've found that Blackberry phone chargers work ultra reliably with GoPro H3 Blk + and H4 Blk.
I even run my GoPro's directly with no battery fitted, again using the Blackberry PSU.
There are some "funnies" when doing this though, they're well documented on YouTube.
But basicall you need to power your GoPro up without the SD card, then apply the USB power, pull the USB power and reinsert the SD card and it'll power up just fine.
