    Is it ok to charge my iPhone with the more powerful iPad adapter? Can the battery be damaged?

    It's 10W, not 10V. It should work fine. 10W is the maximum draw, but the iPhone will not draw that much power.

    The website says:

    Featuring a compact design, this power adapter offers fast, efficient charging and includes a 6-foot-long power cord so you can plug it in under a desk or behind the couch. It also charges iPhone and all iPod models with a dock connector.
