If you have an android phone, check its charger for current (for example "1A"). You need one that says "2A" or higher. If you have an iphone, chances are your charger only does 1A. A recent ipad charger might provide 2A and you need a micro USB cable.

My pi3 is happily running on an iPod charger labelled 1A. It has a pi camera and wireless keyboard and mouse attached.

Does it show a smily face when you log on or is it giggling at times? Maybe your ipod supply does more than it is rated at. Anyway, I'd get a better charger and use that ipod charger for a zero, well, if I can get my hands on one anyway.

I've used this charger for Pi0,pi1,pi2and pi3 with no issues for what l do. Others may need more current :D

Depends on requirements - you can get away with 1-1.5A supplies on Pi3 if you don't plug too much in.
