I don't think so...the USB charger should be limiting the action, regardless of what it has available to work with.

I think the PC just doesn't have the watts that the USB is capable of using...

If I charge from a USB port on my PC or a 'dumb' un-powered extension, it takes a lot longer.

So far, no cooked cells from doing this, even if forgotten for a while (don't do this)...

I've puffed TWO out of 60-odd Lipo's...both were with Tx chargers, and I suspect that I'd roached the cells by running them too dead. This was before I got diligent about 2 mins flight, then charge.

I think keeping a cell from ever getting dead in use, should be a much bigger worry than what's happening at charging. With as many toy machines as I have, I'd be a good example: Charging has not been an issue in any way. Literally every Lipo I've owned save for those two, is still just fine.
