Which USB Power Adapter is the safest/best option to use with the Apple Pencil?

I have a 5W and a 10W USB Power Adapter, so I was wondering which one would be the better choice. As I have heard that using the higher voltage charger on a device that it's not specified for can potentially cause damage to said device.

    The smart option for complete top charge is the 5W, however the 10W, 12W and 29W chargers from APPLE, not including generic off-brand dongles, should not harm the pencil. I use my 12W often with my Pencil and have not had any issues with over charging, just a faster charge for immediate use. Please note that it isn't wise to use dongles (chargers) that are not Apple Certified with their devices. The charger will actually stop charging when the batteries are charged if they are Apple's. I hope that helps.
