    I was just thinking about this, but does anyone think we might get a bigger charger for our 6+? Being that the battery should be a bit bigger than any iPhone we have seen before.

    Edit: and when I say charger. I mean the wall charger. Something closer to the iPad wall charger.

    I thought I read it comes with a 5 watt charger but it should be 10 watts if you ask me, like the iPad.

    Edit: thoryamaha919 beat me to it.

    So Apple already released it would be 5 watt, or those are just early reports? Seems kind of crazy they would go that route since the phone is so big. I know when I had the Note 2 it had a bigger charger than the S3. I feel like that big of a screen needs a bit more power going to it. Oh well I will be fine. Thanks to both of you guys for the info.

    Yea, I hear ya. Guess you can always use the 10w charger and hopefully it charges faster. :D

    Since I have the iPad one, if you use that on the new phone , will it charge it faster? Or is it something that has to have that tech in the phone itself?

    I use my iPad charger to charge all of my devices, iPhones, iPods and iPads. I think each device is regulated

    Yes the lightning connector negotiates the phones charging capacity when you plug it in and will only take in as much current as the device supports.

    So even if you plug in the 12 watt charger, the phone will only charge at whatever apple has programmed it for which for the iPhone 5 I believe is the stock 5 volts (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Ok, you're wrong. :p What you meant is one amp. All the devices are five volts.

    What it needs is a thicker Lightening cable.
