  • I realise that I have made a certain omission in my previous answer: Only the current iP6 & iP6+ can benefit (not by 100% by say something like 50%) SHORTER charging time if you charge them with the 10/12W iPad Chargers instead of the 5W (flat) chargers that come with the products. Because their charging control circuitry can SAFELY "tolerate" a higher rating than the 1.0A rating that the included charger can provide. Apple continues to supply the good old flat type 5W charger with these iP6/6+ mainly for two reasons: 1) it goes without saying that the 5W charger costs less for them. 2) Equally important, thee 5W "flat" charger is a pretty compact one. If they attempt to include the plumper/bigger 12W charger, they will have to increase the sizes (volume) of the iPhone gift boxes...
