My spare jiofi device came with a 1A micro usb charger, and my phone uses a 2A micro usb charger.

I want to occasionally charge this jiofi device to not let the battery drain down completely.

Is it safe to use the 2A charger on the jiofi device, by using a higher amp charger will it affect the battery life?

Ideally charging current should be 1/10th of battery capacity for maximum battery life

More the charging current less the battery life

higher current could be dangerous for not only battery but also wires inside of the mobile. They can also short circuit with higher current.
Better to use charger with rated current or lesser.

It all depends on the charging circuit used inside the device(JioFi) that defines the charging current for the battery. Most likely it will be taken care and you need not worry about using 2A charger.
