    Charges iPhone & iPad Air SUPERFAST!

    I have purchased many adapters and cables that are not genuine Apple products & they all fail 2 weeks later. This Apple adapter works great & charges my iPad Air & iPhone6 so fast! Yes, the adapter gets hot. However last time I checked, there is electric flowing through the adapter. Just like a light bulb or TV, anything with an electric currant flowing through it can get hot. I have used the same adapter for 2 years so it last long & gets the job done! I just wish Apple would make fashionable versions so there are choices other than just white. I highly recommend this adapter as it is very efficient and at just $19 USD it is very affordable. Thank you! Team Apple all day

    Bought several of these at various times to keep my iPhone and iPad charged up and in use at different locations at work and at home. This keeps up with an iPhone without an issue, and most iPads, but if you are heavily using an iPad Pro you will find that the battery slowly drains, even with this in place and engaged. Still, it's a lot better than the lower wattage units, and it does keep the iPad happily purring along all day at work.

    I got this for my wife as we were troubleshooting why her ipad wasn't charging. It turns out that it was the usb adapter and the generic $3 adapters weren't working. This larger apple adapter puts out more power than the smaller apple adapter and was the same price. The smaller one would've probably worked, but at the same price, why not get more output charging power. It solved the charging problem.

    when you buy this you don't get a cable, rather you have to buy the cable that goes from this to an ipad else it's useless. why do you have to buy the cable seperate from the power adapter? because, apple. It works though and decent price at best buy, no more or less than other vendors.

    Needed an additional iPad charger for work. This does the trick. Wanted to stay with genuine apple products because I trust their quality - although I'm fairly certain you can find something similar to get the charging job done at a cheaper price. Oh, this is only the power block too, you still have to purchase the USB/lightning cable separately - that kind of Upset me.

    Fast charging

    I bought this charger because the cube that comes with iPhones never lasts the life of my phone. I was pleased to find this charger worked with my iPhone and also charges much faster. Hopefully it lasts longer! Only down side is the awkward shape when plugging it into power strips. I have no idea why they didn’t just turn the prongs 90 degrees...

    Should buy this everytime for iPhone or iPad

    The great thing about this charger is it works for both iPhone and iPad for only a few dollars more. If you try to use the smaller phone charger for your iPad, it doesn't work. And the bonus is it charges slightly faster for your phone. Only reason it's not a 5 star is Apple products are $$$.

    Apple 12W USB Power Adapter - White

    The Apple 12W USB Power Adapter is the essential USB charger. If you carry only one USB charger, this should be the one. In fact, it is the only one I carry on travel to charge my iPad, iPhone, iPod, and other USB charged devices such as an external charge station battery. The size, current output, and toughness make it the standard that other chargers must match.

    Good Reliable Charger

    I prefer to get the authentic apple charger as they seem to last a lot longer and work better. Only comment is the price on these remain fairly high given other competitors. Having said this I still shell out the extra money for the reliability and knowing that they will work 100% of the time.

    I recently bought a second quick charging unit for my iPad and iPhone. Since I use them both so much away from home I keep both devices charging whenever I'm at home. Having the second one makes it so much easier than discovering one device is running out of power and realizing "someone" moved my charger to her vehicle.

    This converts the power and regulates the charge to the iPad. I needed one and it's fine. I don't have a lot of WOW praise for it. It does what it's supposed to. I tend to stick with Apple products for use with Apple products. That makes them expensive, but dependable at least. It's a power adaptor. If you need it, get it.

    Higher output than the Cube

    This will charge an iPhone or iPad faster than the apple cube. This charger's output is 12 watts compared to the 5 watt cube. The reason for the 4 stars rather than 5 is because the first one only lasted about a week. Best Buy exchanged it for a new one that has been going strong for about a month now.

    Rapid Charger

    I use this power adapter when I need to charge my iPod Touch quickly. It fully charges the battery within a half hour or so. I like the retractable prongs which makes it ideal for travel/portability. The only downside I've noticed is that my iPod battery seems to drain faster after I charge it with this adapter.

    Not much to say on a power adapter. It charges the iPad mini just fine. Basically it is typical Apple, expensive, but works. Thanks to Best Buy for at least having a little discount on it when I purchased.

    Charges up our iPad in no time and i use it occasionally for my iPhone 6+. It charges my 6+ fast but seems to charge the whole device, I'll get shocked when i touch it when it's plugged in. It's like a static shock and is only slightly annoying. I've stopped using it with the 6+ because that can't be a good sign.

    Easy to Lose

    Having owned my iPad for less than a year, and having bought 4 of these, I have to think that Apple makes them white so that they ARE easy to lose. It also gets extremely warm when charging. That said, the true Apple Version, at 12 Volts charges much better and faster than the Belkin 10 Volt. Go with the Apple.

    Superior charging

    Only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is cause it only has 1 usb port. It should have 2 and both should be at 2 amps or more for fast charging. pity it only has one. Look for other chargers that have 2 ports with 2 amps or more per port.

    For the most part this charger is really nice for charging my iPad Air and my iPhone 5s. The only major gripe I have is that it sometimes causes my devices to lock up or act a little buggy. This could be due to issues with iOS, my power supply, or any number of other variables. All-in-all I do recommend it.

    I have a love hate releationship with apple products. Their 3rd party products suck and apple products are insanely overpriced. But the power adapter charges extremely fast, and I have not had one break on me yet, but have had 3 3rd party ones break or not be compatible.

    So far it is working fine recharging my iPad. I had tried several different ones that was suppose to work but none of the lasted long. Hopefully this will last, but it shout have been replaced under the warranty when the iPad was replaced. I shouldn't have had to buy one.
