    They both look exactly the same, my pantech element android tablet charges up faster than my mimi so I thought maybe I used the iphone charger by accident..

    Same thing. Model numbers and voltages are the same.

    Another one here to confirm that they both should be the same. I have two chargers, one I got with my iPhone 5 and one I got with my iPad Mini and they both are the same.

    Actually, iPods, iPads and iPhones all charge using the same voltage. What is different between the chargers is how many watts you can draw from it.

    Also, the 12w iPad charger is not a cube. It looks rather different from the charger that comes with the iPhone and iPad mini.
