    I researched my ProVari to death before buying it two years ago. When I saw the iStick 50W I jumped on it. I read somewhere that a 2 amp wall wart with any basic USB to micro USB cable would be optimal.
    I'm not technical so dumb it down please. The deeper discussions are lost on me.
    If you have something that works and is safe I would love to know what you use.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance on this topic.

    I use this one from Amazon. It's a 4 port 4A charger for around $12. There's also a 7A model for around $16. It charges my phone, tablet, and my Eleaf iStick rapidly. Read the specs. The four ports are various levels of amperage to prevent overcharging certain devices that don't like high amps. I use the top two ports for my phone and iStick.

    Specs on the EasyAcc charger above.

    The 4 ports have different outputs.
    Port 1 is 1.3A max
    Port 2 is 1.0A max
    Ports 3 and 4 are 2.1A max

    I've charged my MVP 3 on both my Galaxy S5 wall wart and the charger for my PS Vita slim. Actually, the PS Vita charger is the one I use nightly. Charges right up.

    I've also charged it on my phones car charger, which I believe is 1 amp. Takes a little longer, but it works fine.

    I'm no expert on this subject but the people I consider experts have said you should not charge them rapidly. I don't know how to post links but it was said that rapid charges decreased battery life and created more risk for safety problems

    I believe the specs on the iStick 50W are to use a 1 Amp charger.

    Yeah it gets very warm when I use more than 1amp. I like that charger posted, gonna grab one. I can use the first 2 ports for my isticks.

    Yup, I have the 5-port model, and I love it. I take mine with me to work, and I like being able to charge just about everything with just a few cables, rather than lugging around 4-5 separate wall wart chargers.
