Super fast chargingPosted
Standard charging adapter and cable that comes with the iPad Pro 12.9 inch just isn't enough to charge the larger sized iPad. The USB-C adapter can even charge while using the iPad

Only 12% faster than 12W w/Lightning to USB APosted
Sure I like the quick 30min boost as the A11 chip phones (and A10X iPad Pro 2nd Gen) can take advantage of a PD (Power Delivery Profile) of 14.5V/2A=29W other devices don't have and charge 50% in about 30min if not more. Problem is even outside any case, you can FEEL the heat and heat is the biggest enemy of battery life. Meanwhile I discovered it only is 12% faster than getting a $19 12W iPad charging block which I agree, is what SHOULD be included in these "phablet" sized phones like the iPhone 8 Plus I use this block for. Unfortunately I fell for the hype after already owning (2) 12W blocks for my iPhone 6 Plus and had sprung for the nice 2m Lightining to USB A cord vs. the 1m 3.3ft ones that never reach your nightstand that come with your iPhone. Save you money unless you want to have it as a backup for a Thunderbolt 3 Macbook Pro 2016-2018 (or borrow from your 2018 Mac Book Air). You'll have to shut down your MBP laptop to charge up a normally 61W or 87W laptop, but even the Anker PD and other 20,000mah juice packs only deliver 22W-45W PD and are safe to use, but same issue. They are not going to RUN a 15" MBP CPU with a 45W TDP, but you might sneak by with a 13"MBP 15W TDP. Just remember a 15" 2016-2018 MBP has a dedicated GPU that can kick in and use 35W by itself, so PD of 30W is useful, but more so as back up if your USB C 61W or 87W USB C block goes MIA. Least you can quick charge your iPhone 8/8+ or iPhone 10 and have a back up USB C laptop charger to mostly shut down a laptop and recharge the battery and use on battery until you find your 61W or 87W or get a new one? Otherwise save you money and treat yourself to a nice 6.6Ft (2m) Lightning to USB A cord and a 12W USB A $19 iPad brick and only loose 12% charging speed and also reduce the HEAT your phone battery will endure. It might actually make your battery last LONGER over the long run. Plus once at 80% the larger 29W block throttles back the PD profile anyway and you'll notice that last 20% takes significantly longer anyway. So spend $50 for a 29W block and $25 on a new 2m 6.6ft Lightning to USB C cord or spend $19 on a 12W iPad block and $25 on a 2m 6.6ft Lightning to USB A cable and save yourself $30 all over 12%. Like I said, only if you want a back up USB C laptop charger in a pinch, would I make that choice.
