I travel some times and I need to use my other wall charger that I use with most of my filming gears tablet phone etc for my canon C200 Camera
so my question is could I do any harm to my battery if I choose to use option (B) insted of original charger that comes with the camera option (A)
Option (B) that I want to use consists of :
1-AUKEY Amp PD Duo USB Wall Charger with 29W USB
Input: AC 100-240V
USB-A Output (AiPower): 5V 3A Max
2-USB 2.0 A Type Male to 5.5 x 2.5mm DC 5V
3- Original canon Single Battery Bay

I would assume the answer to be yes. USB ports do not put out sufficient voltage to charge most DSLR batteries. I would assume that would apply to video camera batteries, too.

Hi Thank you but is that yes I can use it or you mean yes It will harm my battery?
You asked is there a potential to damage your batteries. Yes, using a third party charger has the potential to damage your battery.
There is really no such thing as a universal charger. I would compare them to universal TV remote controls. Chargers are finicky beasts. They are designed to deliver/trickle a certain amount of current into a specific load.
Unlike a charger, a universal remote can be configured for a specific TV brand, or even model. A universal charger simply emits a steady stream of current, irregardless of whether or not the volume and rate is appropriate for the device that is hooked up to it.
