      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 see 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.

      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. 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.

      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 ho 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.

      Garbage!

      I purchased a brand new iPhone 8 in September 2017 and I purchased the 29 watt USB C power adapter a month later for fastest charging possible. I took it with I purchased a brand new iPhone 8 in September 2017 and I purchased the 29 watt USB C power adapter a month later for fastest charging possible. I took it with me on vacation in January 2018 and it just stopped working. It would not charge my brand new iPhone 8. Thank goodness I had a reliable 12 watt power adapter with me or I would not have been able to take pictures on vacation. Don’t waste your money on the 29 watt USB C power adapter. I could not believe it just stopped working after 3 months.

      Love it!

      I've had this thing for probably two years - got it as a gift - and I'm always impressed at how fast it charges, ESPECIALLY compared to any other charger.

      Absolutely awesome!!!

      Just bought this adapter and was well worth the price. Testing out the fast charge capabilities for taking advantage of the USB -C compatibility with IPad Pro 1 Just bought this adapter and was well worth the price. Testing out the fast charge capabilities for taking advantage of the USB -C compatibility with IPad Pro 12.9 and iPhone 8+. Starting from 50% charge on iPad Pro running FULL BRIGHTNESS / WIFI AND BLUETOOTH connected to my HK ONYX STUDIO 3 speaker / playing Vainglory for 15mins and rest video play it took 1hr and 15mins to reach 95% charge. Constantly increasing charge without a sign of loss of power. Need I say more. Well worth the price vs my 12W adapter that came with iPad. Strongly suggest purchasing it. Just texted iPhone 8+ running FULL BRIGHTNESS and video playback from 44% to 94% in 1hr 10mins. May not seem like much but when you’re having to wait long periods of time to charge your device with factory adapters, it’s a drastic change.
