    Pricey, and now required - thanks Apple

    It's the standard Apple USB plug that comes with various gear - works perfectly fine. The "problem" is that my iPad mini all-of-a-sudden required the official Apple plug adapter in order to charge. Since this sudden changed occurred after I did a standard iOS upgrade, it's obviously not because of some new hardware that was installed - before that upgrade I could plug the Lightning cable into my laptop USB port or any number of "no name" adapters I have lying around the house. No, this is obviously Apple's way of putting it to the customer in an oh-so-subtle way.

    Not Bad, But Does Not Work For iPod Classic

    I bought this to have a second charger for my iPod Classic 160 Gig. It did not charge the unit. So, I had bought a second one for my iPod Touch 6 at work. It worked on the iPod Touch 6 but not on the iPod Classic. Then I tried the first unit on the iPod Touch 6 and it worked. I tried three separate cords on this unit with my iPod Classic (30 pin cables) and also tired it on a iPod 5th Generation. Still did not work. Not a bad product, just not able to use it for what I intended and there was no mention that it would not work on the older iPods. I would recommend for the iPod Touch 6 as I know it works there and does a great job or recharging when needed.

    They should really include the cable...

    These chargers work well and are reliable. At this price, Apple should include the cable. If they charged a few more bucks and included the cable, that would be a bit better, *both* my cables and chargers seem to walk away at home on a regular basis. Apple charges a lot for their cables and chargers, but so far, I not been able to find 3rd party chargers and cables that work reliably and last as long, my iPad 1 charger still works. Marking down a star for the price (and not including the cable!)

    Effective for an older model iPad (2?).

    Upon initial use this product excellent. Howerver, the performance quality depreciated very quickly to my disappointment. The item works sporadically (off and on); but when it does work, it is superb - it charges my older model iPad to 100% thank God. My current budget does not allow purchase of a new iPad. I am sufficiently satisfied with this purchase. In spite of this experience, I remain a loyal Best Buy customer. Sincerely, God in Heaven DaughterB

    There is no other dependable product then original apple chargers that you can properly use with an iphone and ipad. To be honest as much as i hate the high price tag on this thing, it is the only charger that wont fail you, i have tried other brands and they get way to hot and down right fail. This is honestly the only way to go for the best charging reliability.

    My IPad was refusing to charge without giving a message that my charger was not compatible. The folks at Best Buy recommended the Apple charger which is certainly much more expensive than third party chargers. Unfortunately for me, I got the same message when using this charger. I now use a 3.1 amp charger. It works great and was a lot less expensive at Costco.

    This is my third one of these in the past 6 months. My first one lasted great for 2 years, and went dead, and the replacement I bought died after only two weeks. This one is still functional after a month, thankfully... Apple shouldn't be putting out products that fail so quickly.

    A weak link leads to a disastrous flaw

    Works for intended purpose. After much use, the cord where it attaches to the connection into the device has become frayed and exposed electrical wiring. Apple charges a premium for such items and they last like a knock off. I would recommend this product with a warning of the flaw

    Better quality than the knockoffs

    I hate the stupid high prices of apple accessories as much as the next guy, but Apple's products are built much better than the knockoffs. The cables and plugs last much longer, so I guess that makes them worth their ridiculous price. Sort of.

    I had some issues with heat while charging, so I've went mainly to the USB computer charging option. It might be that I require my device to be at maximum performance for long periods of time as to why it gets so hot, but it is kind of annoying.

    The creator of the ipod may as well have just sold every single part individually to the customer and have them build the ipod them self to get the most money they could.... u pay 270 for the ipod but a wall charger isnt included....a freaken joke.

    I purchased to replace the one that came with my iPad. I just bought the iPad last year so hope this one lasts longer. But dont think it charges as fast as the original one.

    expensive, expensive, expensive when I can buy something similar from any 7-Eleven cheap. I hear they charge faster with this item but I would not of bought it if I would've seen the items for sale cheap late at other stores first.

    I think this should be original equipment that accompanies the Apple devices, or atleast not so expensive. However, they know some will pay for convenience of not carry a charger with us wherever we go with our "mobile devices".

    Bought it to replace the original product which was lost/stolen on a recent trip. The charger is not a speed charger, but a regular one. It works just like the product that came with my iPad.

    ...then get this puck. But I encourage you to spend more on a multi-port charger and charge more than one item at a time.

    The charger works fine so far. So did the original, right up to the point where it died. I'm hoping for better luck with this one. Both were genuine Apple products of the same type.

    I was not aware that these blocks had a shelf life. Perfect for a quick charge but Apple needs to make them last longer.

    I find that my iPhone took a longer time to be charged with this Apple -12W USB power adapter. Apart from that I like the convenience of it.

    It does just what I want it too but only 3 stars because Apple should send it with the iPads in the first place! The small block that comes with it takes forever to charge.
