Can this adapter be used with a normal Lightening cable and the Apple 29W USB-C Power Adapter to charge my iPad Pro (12.7") faster?

I travel a lot so I'm trying to keep my cables to a minimum. I'd rather use an adapter like this in addition to the 29W adapter to charge my iPad Pro (biggest size) much faster. Of course I'd also save a few bucks.

Will this work?

    Probably not. There are resistors that have to be in the male plug of any USB-C device that signal the power source about the maximum power it should try to supply. This prevents a cable from trying to carry more current than it's designed for.

    I may be wrong but I would assume that this adapter is wired in such a way that it will not ask for more power than a standard USB port would supply, since its receptacle would put it outside of the spec otherwise.
