    Apple® Power with Watts of Love

    The Apple® MD826LL/A 12W USB Power Adapter is a certified Apple® product which packs a whopping 12 Watts of power to power up your Apple® device in (A LOT) less time. The Apple® Power Adapter has a single USB charging port on the top to fit your USB charging cord. Sure, there's a cheaper, smaller, and still a respectable option with the 5 Watt Apple® Charging Cube, or those cheap non-recommended square knock off version charging cubes that will work at least until you get home from the discount store, but be prepared to wait for the power to deliver at a much slower speed. Think of 5 Watts as driving 50 miles per hour and 12 Watts as driving and passing vehicles at 120 miles per hour, big difference in power and speed. (We do not recommend you drive that fast) but there should be no speed limits for Apple® charging, and this is like stepping on the accelerator going in the right direction. The size of the adapter is not much larger than the Apple® Charging Cube, and you won't even care or notice the difference in size. The 12 Watt Apple® USB Power Adapter is not heavy or overwhelming, but has some weight that feels like nothing but pure quality. It is smooth with rounded corners, and the metal prongs (the two metal things at the end that fit in the electric socket) fold up making it comfortable to carry in any situation. Once out of the box, you can be confident that your Apple® Power Adapter will start working hard charging all your Apple® products with the power they deserve and all your Apple® products will love you for it.

    Let first say, I do like Apple Inc. products. I'm a Apple guy through and through. But I also like other brands and devices as well. I have a Lenovo tablet, an HP Touchpad, and numerous others. All came with a wall charger and cord. Some of those chargers work well and some don't. I have found myself often plugging my devices into the Apple 12W wall charger. It's awesome at charging Apple devices, but it also knocks the socks off many of the other chargers on the market. I have found it easy to choose between the OEM charger and the Apple one when it's available, which is rare! This charger use to sell for $24.99 or more. Now it and the 5W wall charger have both finally fallen in price and are great for all-around charger uses. Pick one up if you can and try it! You won't be disappointed!!

    I didn't realize there are 2 different power plugs

    So I confess, I don't read directions. My IPhone 6 came with a small plug and my iPad Air came with a larger plug. I kept one in the living room and one in the bedroom. That way no matter where I needed to charge my phone or iPad it was handy. Unfortunately I lost my large plug so I was using just the small one. I then decided to bite the bullet and buy another plug. Since the smaller plug was cheaper I thought why not. WHY NOT? Well no wonder my iPad took forever to charge, the larger plug has a higher Amp and Voltage. I purchased the right one and now my iPad charges in no time. Also bought one for my son's family as they were having the same problem. Thank you Best Buy for having such knowledgeable associates who steered me in the right direction and taught me a valuable lesson.

    iPhone 4 and 4S, iPod, and original iPad AC adapters do NOT charge the iPad Air, so if you need one for home and one for work or travel, you must buy this. Others available in stores and on the web will fail. Its plug folds away for more compact storage, and it turns off when charging is complete. It draws no current when nothing is connected to it so you can leave it plugged in all the time without fear of overheating, and you can leave your iPad Air plugged in all the time without fear of overcharging. It's probably made of about seven and a half cents worth of materials and a fair price for it would be between five and eight dollars, but they charge you twenty dollars plus tax, or around two and a half times its actual value.

    Does not always work

    I bought this charger for my Ipad but unfortunately it has failed to charge my device on multiple occasions even though it was plugged in overnight. There seems to be a connectivity issue with this charger and my lightning USB charging cable. Despite the cable being fully inserted into the charger and the charger being fully inserted into the wall it does not always begin to charge. Typically, I remove the cable from the charger and then plug it back in and it usually connects after one or two tries. I suggest only using with an Apple cable.

    Perfect for Apple not Kindle

    This is perfect for my older Apple IPad. I use a lghtening charging cord from Amazon and it charges quickly. The tech person at the Apple Store told me not to use 12 W charger on a 6 plus IPhone because there is too much current. I tried charging my Kindle with this charger but it took too long. I bought a charger that can be used for Kindle and it charged my Kindle much quicker. I read that the Apple chargers have something built in so prevent over-charging a device. I guess Apple chargers are not compatible with Kindles.

    My Gen 1 iPad charger had died a couple of years ago thanks to me leaving it plugged into a non-grounded strip without the iPad attached ( thank goodness) during a severe thunderstorm. I had replaced it several times with a non-Apple product which worked ok but it charged more slowly. Suddenly, having somehow acquired several different chargers, my iPad kept giving me a message that it could not charge with that device, not sure what was up with that as I had not updated the iPad for years since I only use it now to read iBooks and Kindle books. Anyway, this works all the time, every time, back to charging the iPad up more quickly. Glad Apple didn't discontinue making these.

    Charge (all) tablets faster with a 12W power brick

    I bought an iPhone 6 last year and enjoy everything about it except the small power brick that came with the device. After a little looking around, I discovered a 12W iPad power brick charged my device very quickly, in less than 30 minutes. On a whim, I read up on charging my Nexus tablets with the 12W brick and it was safe to do so. I tried it and it worked great. So great, in fact, that I bought two more so I can charge all my devices faster. I recently flew out of state for a funeral and took all three with me. They worked great. I was able to completely recharge my iPad Air 2 and my iPhone 6 Plus on a short layover and arrived at my destination with plenty of juice after heavy use.
