    Compact, light, works well

    • Written by from Fort Macleod

    This came with my iPad 4th Generation and it works just as expected. It's the same size as the previous 10W adapter but charges more quickly. I can tell you that this does charge the iPhone much faster than the 5W adapter that the iPhone comes with.

    What else is there to say? It works and looks great.

    Very compact design, does what it should do, but the cable could be longer.

    • Written by from Randolph

    The body of the charger is compact enough to fit into the outlet without hogging up the space that is needed for other neighboring plugs to fit properly in their place. The prong that connects to the lightning port of the iPad is symmetrical, making the user not have to ascertain which way it connects. Another minor pro would be that the color of the cord is white; allowing it to be very easy to see if when the cord slips accidentally behind or below furniture in a dark place that is surrounded with other dark cords. However the length of the cable is a little less than what I need when I am charging it and using my ipad at my desk. With all of this mind, it quite simply gets the job done.

    Why the short cord?

    • Written by from Covington

    The charger works great, it charged my iPad and iPhone super fast but I cannot understand why on earth the cord is so short. With such great products it just seems ridiculous to go cheap on something this basic. At the very least apple should have a longer cord as an accessory option.

    This works best

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I have a bunch of other power adapters, they have generally all failed, and all my electronics run on filtered power. This adapter has been my mainstay. For those of you who think that the unit is too big, try a power strip, fits behind my desk easily. I also have one at work, which fits under my desk nicely. Charges fast, this is the best I've ever found. I also use this to power USB hubs and my Raspberry Pi. I have about 4 of these now.

    Everything about it rocks

    • Written by from Sycamore

    First of all, I bought this for my old 3GS I had to give life to. I was tired of charging it near my computer and needed a new source. This charger is made for the retina iPads and new iPhones/iPods that it requires it to push a little harder. So what does it do on old devices? It works a lot better than the 5W or 10W chargers... instant plus.

    Second the size is great. It fits in the palm of my hand, and even though it is a little bigger than the 5W, does it really matter, the ac prongs can be tilted in a 90 degree angle, unlike the 5w charger.

    And lastly, they both cost the same, and this one gives your device almost twice the speed of charging than the 5W, do yourself a favor and choose this one over all the other ones because it works with all of the iDevices Apple has ever made.*

    Rocks

    • Written by from Memphis

    The adapter that came with my iPad disappeared and I was not going to keep charging it on the wall charger for my phone or on my mac. I broke down and purchased it and I am glad I did. I charge all my device with it cuts down on the charge time.

    Fast charge, but no cable included!

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    It charges fast after I finally got a cable to charge my phone. The previous chargers I had bought from apple came with cables. I would recommend this over the smaller chargers if you need a quick charge. I can get nearly a full charge on my phone in an hour with this.

    I love the speed...

    • Written by from Atlanta

    The power adapter that comes with the iPad Mini just takes way to long to charge my iPad. On top of that it didn't seem to top off my battery properly. The rep at Apple suggested this adapter and I couldn't be happier. NO EXAGGERATION! My iPad charges at least 50% faster. I drained the battery completely and then recharged. In about 15-20 minuted my iPad was back to 50%. I will note that I leave the iPad powered off during this time. Obviously Apple makes it money by selling the weaker adapter with the iPad and have customers by the better one separately. They're not a billion company by luck or chance. None the less. If you want to charge your Apple products in half the time buy this adapter and just leave the other as a spare. Highly recommend!

    Fast charge for iPad mini and iPod Touch!

    • Written by from Shaker Heights

    I love this charger. My iDevices came with the 5W USB power adapter. i picked this up for the folding prongs. So glad I did. Everything charges so fast. Well worth $19 for the convenience. I plan to pick up an extra to keep in my car.

    chargers ipod touch fast :)

    • Written by from bakersfield

    it does no bueno that it doesn't come with the cord but all apple products come with the necessary cords so people don't need or shouldn't have to pay for them together. its uglier then the 5w but it handles twice as fast and seeing as I don't care (that much) how slim my charger is I got the big one and its awesome :)

    The best for iPad mini

    • Written by from York

    This charger is the very best you can buy. Apple should include it with the mini. With the included 5w charger, it takes 3-4 hours to charge. With this new one, it can charge from 0% to 100% in about one hour. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a faster way to charge your device.

    Add-on cord is too short and no option available

    • Written by from Toronto

    No actual cord is included. You need a separate purchase.

    The cords available are so short that they're barely functional to reach from my desk to the outlet. To use the iPad away from your desk while charging, plan on sitting on the floor near the outlet.

    This product sorely needs an extension.
    (The previous charger adapter that had an excellent three prong extension attached has been discontinued (duh!). I have one and it's so useful I wanted another. No luck.)

    This product is another example of form over function and the misconception that minimalism equals simplicity.

    Failure of charger in less than six months

    This charger overheated and failed to work. The overheat was serious and probably would have resulted in a meltdown or fire. I do not recommend the product.

    Heat Failure

    • Written by from Buffalo

    It's a great charger which I've had since the purchase of my 4th gen I-Pad about 14 months ago. It just failed on me so I need to replace it. I feel it failed because of the incredible heat it generates. The brick becomes (and always has) very very hot, almost too hot to touch. If purchasing this unit please be aware of the heat factor and do NOT leave it plugged in for extended periods of time.

    We had a power surge due to inclement weather. Freezing rain caused many power outages in our area and ours went out very briefly because of a surge. My iPad was charging at the time and THANK YOU APPLE for this awesome charger!!! The charger is now fried, but not my iPad!!!!
