Do you have an adapter? Smaller than an entire cable and works to charge.

That is my understanding, too. When I need a faster charge, I use my ipad charger.

I charge with the ipad charger, connected to a USB extension cable to my lightning cable. Lots of stuff going on, but no problems with charging!

The only thing I notice sometimes is that the usage starts once it fully charges. It will have some usage and show a standby of a few hours when i wake up.

There could be something to be said for carrying a spare charger in case the first one dies on you during a trip and there's no Apple store nearby.
