Can you mix chargers for toys?

Now I know that I can use my jejoue charger for all of my Je Joue but are there any toys that you use the charger from one to charge another? I mean using the Jopen charger to charge a leaf product or another one. Or a Lelo to charge a Jopen.

I don't have enough rechargeable toys to test this out, but as I do have three Je Joue charges, I thought I'd comment.

I can use the charger for Uma to charge Fifi, and vice versa. I cannot, however, use the charger from Uma to charge Mimi. It fits on perfectly, but it will not charge Mimi, for some reason. The charger from Mimi also doesn't seem to work to charge either of my either Je Joue toys.

I wouldn't want to try for fear of ruining my toy.

If the voltage, polarity, and plug size all match, it will work fine, but it's not a good practice to swap chargers without carefully reading all the specs in question. If the voltage is right, but you forget about polarity, it'll fry the toy in seconds. I've had it happen with other electronics.

Also, Lelo warns specifically against mixing the charger for the Smart Wand with its other products. Seeing as they ship the Gigi with a charger that doesn't even match the specs in the user manual, I'm going to take anything they bother to warn against very very seriously.

This! If you know the specs match it can work but you still run the risk of damaging the batteries.

One thing the specs will not tell you all the time is when the charger has an automatic shut off, some do and some don't. Over charging is not good for the batteries, especially Li-Ion, and could cause a fire or explosion.
