I have the 29W charger and USB C or lightening to charge my iPad Pros - can I use it to charge my iPhone with damaging it? I realise it will not fast charge, normal is ok.

I think so but want to double check. Thanks.

No the 60W and 75W power adapters will not charge the phone faster. The phone won't recognize these and will default to a lower draw than the 29W adapter.

The 29W power adapter with the lightning to USB-C cable are the best (fastest) you can use.
