    5 hours 15 minutes from dead to 100%.

    Is that quicker than the iPad 3 or 4 with the 10W charger? I assume so.

    My ipad 3 charges in 6 hours from dead to 100% on the 10 adapter. I thought about getting the 12w adapter don't think that 45 minutes is not worth the $20.00 to me.

    Is this Apple's cute way to resolve a long battery charging issue?

    Add 2 more watts to the adaptor and also sell it on apple store for $20.

    The issue is partly the USB standard and the battery's ability to take on juice.

    It's not an issue. It's more of a convenience. Long charging times? Just wait around and do something else.

    45 minutes per charge. Assuming that you own the device for 2 years and that you only charge your iPad once a week, that's 4680 minutes or 78 hours. That's 3 days saved over the course of 2 years. Crazy! $20 well spent!

    That is if you always unplug it at 5 hrs 15 min every time. Most of us plug in the iPad and forget about it for 6-7 hours anyway.

    I always just charge the iPad when I sleep, when I wake up it's 100%
