      Compact, light, works well

      This came with my iPad 4th Generation and it works just as expected. It's the same size as the previous 10W adapter but charges more quickly. I can tell you tha This came with my iPad 4th Generation and it works just as expected. 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 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.

      Check your wall plug, not the charger

      There DO are times when the charger gets hot, but it is probably the problem with the wall plug.

When the connection isn't stable, there are little sparks that can heat the whole thing up. You might not notice, but using a external cable or a power strip will solve the problem. IF the problem stills, check your connection cord. I CAN BET SOMETHING IS WRONG, BUT PROBABLY NOT THE CHARGER, BECAUSE MINE WORK COMPLWETELY FINE. FOR 5+ YEARS. oh, USE YOUR COMMON SENCE OF WHERE YOU PUT THIS THING AND HOW YOU PLUG IT IN. Also, WallPlug AND Connection Cord needed to be checked. I am a Apple lover, and I trust its quality.
