      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.

      Charges iPhone & iPad Air SUPERFAST!

      I have purchased many adapters and cables that are not genuine Apple products & they all fail 2 weeks later. This Apple adapter works great & charges my iPad Ai I have purchased many adapters and cables that are not genuine Apple products & they all fail 2 weeks later. This Apple adapter works great & charges my iPad Air & iPhone6 so fast! Yes, the adapter gets hot. However last time I checked, there is electric flowing through the adapter. Just like a light bulb or TV, anything with an electric currant flowing through it can get hot. I have used the same adapter for 2 years so it last long & gets the job done! I just wish Apple would make fashionable versions so there are choices other than just white. I highly recommend this adapter as it is very efficient and at just $19 USD it is very affordable. Thank you! Team Apple all day

      I've had the iPad, iPad Air, and now iPad Air 2 as well as most of the phones including the first iPhone, now have iPhone6. Love the product but with my iPad a I've had the iPad, iPad Air, and now iPad Air 2 as well as most of the phones including the first iPhone, now have iPhone6. Love the product but with my iPad air2 my charger gets so hot I can't leave it overnight just in case it causes my home to burn. This is really not a good advertisement to buy Apple goods also my iPad air2 itself gets very hot. Why is this Apple? I get apprehensive when my iPad gets hot so switch it off. Shouldn't have to do this. It seems as though this is not just my problem but a general one. What is Apple doing about it? Are they in denial? Hope it doesn't turn out like the hover stuff. Never happened with the previous Apple pads and phones. Only rated it 3 stars because of the heating problems I am having, product itself is really good to use.
