    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.

    As Newtons Apple correctly said, you can. The phone will only pull what it wants.

    The phone (assuming it’s a 6s or later) will charge faster too.

    What about 75W?

    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.

    You could use a 1.21 Gigawatt charger if you like. It will still only draw X amps @ 5V

    Yes, but that charger might end up teleporting your iphone back to the future :D

    The power adapters are NOT a charger. The are a transformer and rectifier. Turn higher voltage AC into low voltage D.C. Current. The charger is inside the phone itself.
