Two pin chargers may be portable and flexible when finding charging space in an extension socket. Two pin chargers and power cords are those that have two connectors (light and neutral pin) with no earth connector, they have negative effect on your electronic batteries.

Most of the times when you use two pin charger, you interchange the light pin and neutral pin connectors (Polarity interchange) of a two pin chargers. Although it be working very fine for you but you don't know it causes cell depolarization, which is a cell defect, thereby reducing the lifespan of your device battery.

I recommend three pin chargers because it has an earth continuity connector, which protects your charger during thunder strike, also it does not allow for polarity interchange.

  • Check the Power Ratings of Chargers and Power Cords before you Purchase them

Do you know that all chargers and power cords have their different power ratings for. when I talk about power rating, I mean the electrical energy input the charger or power cord consumes and the energy output it produces. 
It is good you note that "Not every charger that charges or powers your devices matches its power specification". Ensure you read the manual of your device and compare the power ratings of your old burnt charger or power cord with the new one you wish to buy.

Check the body or back of your device you will see where your device specifications and ratings are written. Power ratings of devices are specified in Ampere-hour (Ah).
So always make sure that the ratings of the new charger or power cord is the same with that of the original (follow come). charger dealers may may try to convince you to buy the one they have by telling you it doesn't mater, please neglect their advances they are only trying to sell their products.   
The wrong chargers and power cords will either supply excess or inadequate current or voltage to your devices, which reduces their voltage and efficiency.

  • Don't Look At The Cost Go for Original Chargers

Most of the times people tend to consider cheap alternative when purchasing items because of the cost. This always leads to buying fake items. This is exactly what leads people to buying up to ten charger within a short period. Lets take for instance I bought original charger for $4 and you bought the fake one for $1.5 in after six months am still using the one i bought for $4 but, you must have bought 6 of the one you got for $1.5. So which one is economical?
What am trying to say here is this: always go for original battery chargers, batteries and power cords (in fact any item). Buy them and save more. But don't get it twisted not every expensive item is original. Original chargers and power cord have renowned trademarks. so always spend wisely.

Maintenance tips to help prolong your battery's life span:

Don't over charge your batteries: unplug your charger from the wall socket as soon as the battery is fully charged, overcharging reduces your battery span.
Always Allow your batteries to discharge completely before rechargeing them:  this a healthy practice. Note that constant charging is not good for battery cells.
Never use a battery to power a device that is not of the same rating. typical example is using a Nokia battery for Samsung.
