With regard to the headphones I'm using the MK1 humanoid lugholes and although they don,t allow the flapy bit to locate into the inner foam pads the sit very comfortably over them..

I’ve read this elsewhere. Sounds like it is a dangerous item that wouldn’t comply with UK or EU safety tests. Maybe the manufacturers/distributors should change to a different item before there is an accident.
to charge My Anfibio, Or, my Mains plugin , USB Charger with LED Digital Display, 40w 8A Max 2.4A 8-Port USB Hub Charger. Both work fine to charge with.
The beauty of the Powerbank is you take your power supply along with you in the field (just in case).

As for the power adaptor itself youcan safely use another one from another brand but just make sure to check the rating before you use it just incase!. You can;t really go too far wrong with USB power adaptors though as most of them are pretty much standard and safe!. The manufacturers stating that only thier USB power adaptor should be used are just being causious in the event that someone might use an old or cheap knock off USB charger that isn't as safe as it should be!. USB charger's come in both 3.3v and 5v but I haven't even seen a 3.3v version for ages. Obviously the maximum current draw varies between adaptors but that normally isn't a problem either way becasue the device being charged will only draw the current that it needs and if the device to be charged is designed to draw a higher current then what the USB device can provide then 'normally' this shouldn't be an issue either becasue it would just mean that charging could take longer!. The problem that 'may' ocurr is if the USB device is of bad quality or design and isn't designed with any safety features to allow for any mismatch between charger rating and device draw when the device to be charged current draw is higher then what the USB charger can provide!- this is what the manufacturers are probably worried about when they advice customers to only use their USB charging adaptors!- usually you're never likely to have a problem unless you buy really cheap and badly made adaptors!.
I bought a double port USB charger from Tesco rated at 2.4 Amps for just £10 and it covers most requirements and is well made with all the required safety stamps on the back etc!.
Regarding your headphones- obviously not all headphones are designed to fit completely over the ear and the ones that are designed in such a way are often for music production but they can severely limit what you can hear going on around you which isn't always a good idea!- I'm sure you'd want to hear that bull in the field if it suddenly decided to charge you from behind! lol!.
