Sadly the answer is no. I bought this charger hoping to reduce the charging time on my iPhone 4 from 90 minutes to about 40. Well it was wishful thinking. It took the exact amount of time to charge a fully depleted battery as the compact 5w charger that comes with all the iPhones: 90 minutes.
On the plus side, it is only $19.00 and it is fully compatible with every iPad, iPhone, and I believe every iPod(except the shuffle) made within the last 5+ years. Basically, it is a universal "i" charger. Universal yes, faster .....no.
