Hi,

The board will draw a maximum current of 500mA to charge the battery.
This means that if you charge the BiTalino with a charger that supplies a lower current it will charge slower than with a charger with 500mA or higher.
Otherwise if you charge it with a 2000mA charger it will not charge any faster than with a 500mA charger but it will work the same way.

Best regards,
Carlos
