    Is it just me or does the 10.5 charge faster than 12.9?

    How long does yours (specify 10.5 or 12.9) take to charge with the 12V adapter?

    Just curious about the minutia :D

    All things being equal, the 12.9" battery is larger then the 10.5 so its going to take more time to charge

    Cannot say how long the 10.5 takes to charge, but it took over 4 hours for my 12.9" to charge from 10% to 100% last weekend.

    Yes, the 10.5 does charge faster as the battery is considerably smaller.

    Another factor on charging time is : are you usin it? The bigger screen really needs the juice so I takes much longer to charge the 12.9 in use than the 10.5

    Has anyone used the fast charging for either the 10.5 or the 12.9?

    I used it on my 12.9 one. It cuts the charge time by about half. So it takes about 2 hours or so for my iPad to charge from 10% to 100%.

    I really want to try the fast charging, but the cable and adapter I need to make it happen are so expensive and a I don't trust third party options.

    I really don't wish to get into the fast-charge stuff - it can run down your battery much quicker, over the long term.
