      Compact, light, works well

      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 tha 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.

      Quick charger than standard 5W charger

      I honestly don't understand why people slate this charger for being bulky. Or even ugly??? What's more important? the look of your iPhone/iPad or the charger? I honestly don't understand why people slate this charger for being bulky. Or even ugly??? What's more important? the look of your iPhone/iPad or the charger? Obviously it the iPhone/iPad. Yes it's a tiny bit bigger than the standard 5W iPhone charger. But the charge time is seriously reduced. Why do you think Apple issued this charger in the first place when purchased with a iPad? Answer: from 0% to 100% charges in about 2-3hrs with 12W charger, with the 5W charger 4-5hrs maybe more. With iPhone 4S this charger can charge my phone 0% to 100% in around 1hr.

      I've had the iPad, iPad Air, and now iPad Air 2 as well as most of the phones including the first iPhone, now have iPhone6. Love the product but with my iPad a I've had the iPad, iPad Air, and now iPad Air 2 as well as most of the phones including the first iPhone, now have iPhone6. Love the product but with my iPad air2 my charger gets so hot I can't leave it overnight just in case it causes my home to burn. This is really not a good advertisement to buy Apple goods also my iPad air2 itself gets very hot. Why is this Apple? I get apprehensive when my iPad gets hot so switch it off. Shouldn't have to do this. It seems as though this is not just my problem but a general one. What is Apple doing about it? Are they in denial? Hope it doesn't turn out like the hover stuff. Never happened with the previous Apple pads and phones. Only rated it 3 stars because of the heating problems I am having, product itself is really good to use.
