    Does this improve after it's now been calibrated? That seems very slow for being charged with the mains charger to me. I was expecting (hoping) around an hour.

    Anyone got some 6+ times? I won't have mine until tomorrow to check it.

    Two hours doesn't seem that bad. I think that's about how long my 5s takes to charge, and the 6 has a bigger battery.

    There's been testing done elsewhere, ~2 hours for iPhone 6, ~ 3 hours for iPhone 6 Plus. A little faster if you use 12W iPad charger.

    1 hour 57 min seems fast compared to my 6+ taking too charge.

    * 2 hours and 4 min it was in the end (I estimated the last 4% and was off the mark :eek:).

    But yeah, 3 hours for a 6+ is ******. I saw the Note 4 presentation and it charges to 50% in 30mins with the standard charger. Thought maybe these iPhones would have the same tech or whatever.

    It is if you're trekkin' and travelling. Charge time on devices is becoming increasingly a problem and priority recently. Depends on your lifestyle.

    this.. it took me 3 hrs. 50 mins to charge from 0 to 100 on my plus using standard 5w.

    then again the plus does have a significant bigger battery. :)

    It took me about 1hr 45mins to charge 0%-100% using standard iPhone charger.

    Pro tip: Put your phone in airplane mode to increase charging time :apple:.
