      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.

      Excellent item - not before time

      I am glad they have finally released a standalone ipad charger without the stupid cable. I like to have a spare or two around in different rooms.

      An apple design classic

      Couldn't be more opposed to those saying it looks ugly. Next to my MagSafe charger it just looks right. Well made and of quality materials too. In comparison th Couldn't be more opposed to those saying it looks ugly. Next to my MagSafe charger it just looks right. Well made and of quality materials too. In comparison the new triangle chargers you get with the iPhone and iPad mini, just look like generic other manufacturer copies. Severe lack of imagination there Apple! Also these work with the world travel charger adapters due to the interchangeable plugs.

      It just works

      It's just a simple charger compatible with iStuff. However, other devices that I plug to it with USB to USB micro cable complain about slow charging, so basical It's just a simple charger compatible with iStuff. However, other devices that I plug to it with USB to USB micro cable complain about slow charging, so basically Apple does not follow industry standards, which is a shame, but of course on the box they wrote what it's compatible with, so I mention that as a statement of fact and not as a complaint. One things I'd complain about is no Lightning cable - that has to be purchased separately. Considering how little producing a cable costs, this should have been included, even in an Apple product.

      Good Job Apple - Finally

      Old Apple Chargers need to do specially proprietary negotiation with the device in order to turn on the high-speed charging mode. IF not, you simply get 500mA Old Apple Chargers need to do specially proprietary negotiation with the device in order to turn on the high-speed charging mode. IF not, you simply get 500mA out of the old Apple Chargers, even on the old 10W charger. This 12W Apple charger finally supports the USB Battery Charging Revision 1.1 specs, and it has the D+ and D- line shorted out to tell any connected device that it is a Dedicated Charging Port (DCP) and can automatically supply the max current (2.0A).
