    I love my adapter

    I bought this adapter with my first generation nano years ago, I've never had a single problem with this product. I'd recommend this product for everyone.

    Much faster than included charger!

    My iPad mini (1st gen) came with a standard 5W charger (the cubic one). I finally heard from a friend that you can use this charger with any iOS device, including my iPad mini. It is worth the $19 because it charges my iPad at least twice a fast. I don't know why this charger isn't included in every Apple product. If you don't have this, you definitely need this.

    It's like insurance!

    We had a power surge due to inclement weather. Freezing rain caused many power outages in our area and ours went out very briefly because of a surge. My iPad was charging at the time and THANK YOU APPLE for this awesome charger!!! The charger is now fried, but not my iPad!!!!

    Heat Failure

    It's a great charger which I've had since the purchase of my 4th gen I-Pad about 14 months ago. It just failed on me so I need to replace it. I feel it failed because of the incredible heat it generates. The brick becomes (and always has) very very hot, almost too hot to touch. If purchasing this unit please be aware of the heat factor and do NOT leave it plugged in for extended periods of time.

    I love the speed...

    The power adapter that comes with the iPad Mini just takes way to long to charge my iPad. On top of that it didn't seem to top off my battery properly. The rep at Apple suggested this adapter and I couldn't be happier. NO EXAGGERATION! My iPad charges at least 50% faster. I drained the battery completely and then recharged. In about 15-20 minuted my iPad was back to 50%. I will note that I leave the iPad powered off during this time. Obviously Apple makes it money by selling the weaker adapter with the iPad and have customers by the better one separately. They're not a billion company by luck or chance. None the less. If you want to charge your Apple products in half the time buy this adapter and just leave the other as a spare. Highly recommend!

    Stopped working

    The charger that came with the iPad 2 lasted about a year then suddenly stopped working. It refused to charge even though I tried it with a different cable and device so definitely dead.

    This is a 2 Amp charger (as opposed to the factory iPhone 1 Amp one that looks the same in Australia) since it needs more juice but was operating very warm when doing a full charge and I think due to it being stressed out in that small package it fails. I'm unsure if Apple have an updated revision since the iPad 2 but I decided to go with a Belkin one and keep the receipt just in case. The Belkin is more expensive.

    Failure of charger in less than six months

    This charger overheated and failed to work. The overheat was serious and probably would have resulted in a meltdown or fire. I do not recommend the product.

    The best for iPad mini

    This charger is the very best you can buy. Apple should include it with the mini. With the included 5w charger, it takes 3-4 hours to charge. With this new one, it can charge from 0% to 100% in about one hour. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a faster way to charge your device.

    Pretty compact and useful to have a spare...

    As some people have reviewed negatively this does not include the USB cable - but many people will already have one and just want a spare charger. You can buy either the lightning / dock cable separately - including one would have wasteful and upped the price for people who already have one.

    12w (so over 2 amp) high speed charging - although due to the huge capacity battery in the iPad it still takes a while to charge if completely flat.

    I had seen 3rd party chargers a bit cheaper but to be honest for something plugged in probably most of the time I'd rather pay the extra few pounds for a genuine charger.

    Fast charge for iPad mini and iPod Touch!

    I love this charger. My iDevices came with the 5W USB power adapter. i picked this up for the folding prongs. So glad I did. Everything charges so fast. Well worth $19 for the convenience. I plan to pick up an extra to keep in my car.

    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 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.

    Why the short cord?

    The charger works great, it charged my iPad and iPhone super fast but I cannot understand why on earth the cord is so short. With such great products it just seems ridiculous to go cheap on something this basic. At the very least apple should have a longer cord as an accessory option.

    Rocks

    The adapter that came with my iPad disappeared and I was not going to keep charging it on the wall charger for my phone or on my mac. I broke down and purchased it and I am glad I did. I charge all my device with it cuts down on the charge time.

    Fast charge, but no cable included!

    It charges fast after I finally got a cable to charge my phone. The previous chargers I had bought from apple came with cables. I would recommend this over the smaller chargers if you need a quick charge. I can get nearly a full charge on my phone in an hour with this.

    Everything about it rocks

    First of all, I bought this for my old 3GS I had to give life to. I was tired of charging it near my computer and needed a new source. This charger is made for the retina iPads and new iPhones/iPods that it requires it to push a little harder. So what does it do on old devices? It works a lot better than the 5W or 10W chargers... instant plus.

    Second the size is great. It fits in the palm of my hand, and even though it is a little bigger than the 5W, does it really matter, the ac prongs can be tilted in a 90 degree angle, unlike the 5w charger.

    And lastly, they both cost the same, and this one gives your device almost twice the speed of charging than the 5W, do yourself a favor and choose this one over all the other ones because it works with all of the iDevices Apple has ever made.*

    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? 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.
