    I have the 10w power adapter at work and left the 12w adapter my ipad pro (128GB Wifi/LTE) came with at home.

    Streaming twitch and noticing my power is going down but very slowly.

    So 10w is not good for charging if you are using the Ipad Pro and not leaving it idle. Need a 12w one.

    Ordered a 12W OEM adapter on ebay. I assume its the older one similar to the Ipad 1 adapter. It was new for $10 on ebay and free shipping. (Cancelled order on ebay and got one from the Apple Store, better safe than sorry)

    If you paid $10 with free shipping for a 12W adapter, it 99.9% was a knockoff. Use at your own risk.
