    I am finding that the charger that came with my IPad Mini 4 is giving me the best charge from any third party charger. When I use the OEM charger, I normally get 12 hours on a full charge, but when I use a third party wall charger, I get about 10 hours. Has anyone else notice this?

    Chargers change how fast it charges. Not how long it lasts for.

    It's an extra Steve Jobs juice that Apple puts in their charger, that's why :D

    The oem charger takes longer to fully charge my IPad and therefore giving me a much longer battery life on the IPad.

    A full charge is a full charge whether fast or slow.

    I've had good experience with Anker, legit quality products. There may be others but their stuff has been good so far.

    If the third-party charger does not use the correct voltage for charging the device, it will naturally charge the device at a slower rate.

    Third party chargers? Be careful,some of those might be dangerous. I usually prefer to pay the extra money for an original Apple charger.

    Same here. We have either the 5-/6-/10-port 60W in each room. Also 2x dedicated 6-port + cables in the travel bag.
