    Should be included with the iPad Pro 12.9

    The product itself works fine, albeit very expensive once you add the cable needed. My disgust is aimed at Apple for not including it with the iPad Pro 12.9. I purchased five iPad's for my business and soon found that the included method of charging was so slow as to present a significant problem. This unit is clearly the correct charger for this model iPad. So on top of the £5K I have just invested in the tablets, keyboards, pencils etc I had to find another £375 just to be able to charge them in a reasonable amount of time.

    Appalling and very disappointing from the company that used to be the good guys.

    Incredible adapter...

    This adapter is overwhelmingly preferable in comparison to the 12 watt variant, as the total charge time for an iPad Pro 12.9" from 0 to 100 % is just over 2 hours, assuming you plug the adapter into an AC wall socket, and use the official Apple lightning to usb-c cable. Using the included lightning to usb-a charging cable in concert with the included 12 watt adapter in an AC wall socket, it will take approximately 7+ hours to go from a battery level of 0% to a full 100% charge.

    I tried using 2 non-Apple lightning to usb-c cable variants with the 29 watt adapter, and while the charge rate did, in fact, increase, and the respective charging time decrease, it is not nearly as fast as the combination of both official Apple products used in concert.

    I have repeatedly charged my iPad Pro 12.9" from 0 to 100% in approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, and that includes some minor usage while charging. The cost of the 29 watt adapter and 2 meter lightning to usb-c cable will run you around $85.00, but is absolutely and definitively worth it.

    That being said, c'mon, Apple...given the price of the top end iPad Pro variant, including both the 29 watt adapter and the 1 meter lightning to usb-c cable as part of the retail package seems not only justified, but necessary, at least regarding the valued areas of customer satisfaction and appreciation.

    No cable!

    If you buy this as a second power supply so you don't have to carry one from home to office, be warned that everything that you need is NOT in the box. Budget for an EXTRA £20-£25 for a cable to attach it to your Macbook. Why Apple tarnishes its deservedly good reputation for quality products by overcharging for these accessories I do not know.

    The charger I always wanted for my iPad Pro 12.9

    Since the time I first heard the 29W power adapter can be used for the iPad Pro 12.9, I've wanted to try it. Using the 12W adapter is disconcerting when it seems to make no headway at all in charging the iPad while I'm using it. Sometimes the battery power has gone DOWN while plugged in...which makes me feel really uneasy if I need to use it a lot later in the day.

    With the 29W charger, I can use my iPad Pro with the screen at full brightness and watch the battery level climb quickly up. THAT's reassuring. Apart from believing that Apple should have included the 29W adapter and USB-C-Lightning cable in the box with my iPad in the first place, I am thankful and totally satisfied with my purchase.

    Perfect! Definitely get this if you have an iPad Pro

    It didn't take long to realize that charging my new iPad Pro was taking an unbearably long time. I searched the web for options to pick up the pace and found am article explaining how this usb-c power adapter and the corresponding usb-c cable would allow iPad Pro owners to capitalize on the fancy fast charging feature that's built in the iPad Pro.
    I bought it and immediately see a huge difference in charging time. I can actually charge while I'm using the iPad now. It works perfectly for what I intended.

    Overpriced garbage

    I don't know how some of the people say they've used their charger for years and have never had a single problem. Maybe they also didn't know that people usually carry their power adapter to school or work everyday. From a lot of people I know, most of their chargers gave up before their laptops did. Good job apple!

    Never had any problem - Mine have been stellar!

    My experience is so at odds with the negative reviews. I wanted to put in a word for the other side. An Apple user for 25 years, I've had laptop computers (for portable use when not at my desk) for nearly 10 years. I have never had any issue with the chargers. In fact, my original laptop is still being used by a student of mine and that adapter has never hinted at a problem.
    My experience has been the quality we always expect from Apple.

    $75 for a power brick with no cable!

    When you add the additional $45 for the USB-C cable you need to make this work it costs even more than the iMac Pro power brick and it doesn't even come with a power cable either. Selling the parts separately isn't a great feature it's a scam and even if you buy all the parts you will need to be permanently within 2m of a socket.

    Lasted 6 Months

    Mine lasted 6 months, became unstable, then failed. Just when I thought I had it figured out - i.e., unplug cord, remove & replace plug prong - it did not work. Only solution offered was to go to out of town Apple Store to consult to prove it did not work. Not worth the $49 to replace. So, begrudgingly will purchase a replacement.

    Ridiculous! A power adapter without cable!

    If you purchase this Adapter, you also need to buy the cable. Rather ridiculous.
