This question already has an answer here:

I recently got a Raspberry Pi Zero W V1.1 as a gift....and I'm a bit confused about the power requirements for it. I have a 5V~2A mobile-charger and a 5V~1A mobile charger. Can I use any one of the two chargers I mentioned as a power supply for my Raspberry Pi or should I buy a new one???? If I should....Then please do specify what should be the voltage and current ratings for the new one.

    Hello and welcome. The Pi Zero W should do fine with any of those two power supplies (as long as they stay in their listed spec for currents less than rated). Mind additional peripherals (mouse, keyboard, ... what-not-else) when considering the power rating of the supply though. – Ghanima Nov 12 '17 at 11:18
  • So....I can use both of them.....Alright...Thanks for the help...!!!!!! – Yash Kalwani Nov 12 '17 at 11:18
