    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 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 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).
