When discussing wattage, does it refer to the cable or the charger plug? Or both?
ie, if I want to charge my iPad faster, I assume a 12 watt charger will be faster than a 5, but if I use a different cable (I need a long cable), will it slow it down? Does the cable itself contain a wattage, or only the charger plug itself? Thanks.

The 12 Watt reference is to this product, the12 watt power adapter.
This adapter does not come with a cord/cable, you can use either the short or the long charger cord, (the one that came with either your iPhone, iPad or iPad Mini), they're interchangeable.
You will need this 12 Watt adapter to charge an iPad as the 5 Watt adapter will not work with a standard iPad no matter what length cord you use.
The speed of a long charging cord vs a short one should be imperceptible. Best of luck!
