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.

  • Very compact design, does what it should do, but the cable could be longer.

    The body of the charger is compact enough to fit into the outlet without hogging up the space that is needed for other neighboring The body of the charger is compact enough to fit into the outlet without hogging up the space that is needed for other neighboring plugs to fit properly in their place. The prong that connects to the lightning port of the iPad is symmetrical, making the user not have to ascertain which way it connects. Another minor pro would be that the color of the cord is white; allowing it to be very easy to see if when the cord slips accidentally behind or below furniture in a dark place that is surrounded with other dark cords. However the length of the cable is a little less than what I need when I am charging it and using my ipad at my desk. With all of this mind, it quite simply gets the job done.

    I've now had 2 12w chargers for my iPad mini. The first one quit working, and I don't know why, after about 6 months. I did noti I've now had 2 12w chargers for my iPad mini. The first one quit working, and I don't know why, after about 6 months. I did notice that it was always hot to the touch when I used it. I then bought another one, which sparked as I plugged it into the wall, even the first time, so that one was also recycled. Rats. My iPad mini will charge on the little one given when I bought it, but it does take a long time. I agree with others in that Apple definitely needs to improve their product. Situations like these make people not want to buy their products. Pay attention, Apple!

    I have seen many other reviews stating that these get hot and have been a fire risk... I personally have 5+ of these and have not I have seen many other reviews stating that these get hot and have been a fire risk... I personally have 5+ of these and have not had any of these issues mentioned previously. All of mine have either came with the iPad device (3rd Gen, 4rd Gen, Air, the iPad Air2 Comes with 10w) or purchased from a retail store as an additional one for travel and for the office. For what it is worth, all of mine were purchased / received prior to 2015. But Then again i have many people that i know who purchased these in 2015 and have not experienced any of the issues described previously..

    I would recommend, as with any product, to have these plugged into a surge protector as power in some area can have spikes which can cause damage to electronics.

    I have used this same 12 watt power block to charge the iPads from 3rd generation all the way to iPad Air 2 as well as iPhone 4s, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus with no issues.

    (NOT stating that others did not genuinely have these issues - Just stating that i have personally had NONE of these issues)

    Curious if maybe a faulty batch went out or if there are power issues in the areas where residents have been using these. But which ever the case I would still recommend a power surge protector between the wall and any electronic device (no matter what it is)

    All in All from my point of view great product so far and have been using this for over a year now almost 2.
