So I know you can't find the new charging brick anywhere, and I know that my Anker USB charging hub is really designed to deliver to smaller devices -- is there something that will approximate the fast charging abilities of the new brick so I don't have to carry it back and forth to work every day?

Subscribed - I’m wondering the same thing. Seems strange that there’s not an 18W brick for sale by Apple, yet.

I have the Apple 29W charging brick that I bought awhile back now for my 12.9, which is even better than the one in the box! However, it's a bit pricey as an additional brick... I would assume the Anker is equally good - and I have to say I am loving the (slow) move toward USB-C... can't wait until the phones are as well.

I saw these for $17 at Target on the aisles in the back where they discount stuff here in Texas. I picked up an extra one.

Pretty sure you can just use a Nintendo Switch standard Charger to fast charge, if you have one.

I have several high-powered wall chargers with USB-A ports for my gear including my 9.7 iPad Pro that work just fine. I'm just going to get a few USB-A to USB-C cables and use my existing chargers to charge the new iPad Pro with USB-c. Yes, yes, I know it may not be "Fast Charging", but I've never really needed that. My devices get charged fast enough with the chargers I have on hand already.
