Ok to use the 12 Watt iPad charger to charge the iPhone?

It would be nice to only carry 1 charger. Will the 12 watt charger damage the phone/battery?

I have heard it is fine. I know my wife is constantly charging her iPhone 4 with my iPad adapter, and it hasn't been a problem yet.

No, it will not damage it. The device determines the amount of wattage to draw.

Does the device actually charge faster with the 10W? I've been wondering

Completely safe and within Apple's specs. Don't expect it to charge any faster, however, since the iPhone won't draw any more power than it would with the included 5W charger.
