    It took mine nearly 2 and a half hours to charge from about 17% to 100%, is that about right? (18:18 to 20:41)

    Also, is it fine to play games and do stuff on it while it's charging?

    Bear in mind I've only had the 6S about a day so I just want to be extra sure things are ok!

    That sounds fine, especially if you were using it whilst charging. Obviously this uses some power so may slow it down a little but you won't cause any problems.

    I noticed that my 6S Plus started charging a bit faster once the battery had been through a few cycles. Hope this helps.

    I never charge mine with the standard wall charger, so I can't help. That is what you're doing, right? Using the charger that came with it? Not a computer, not an iPad charger, etc...

    Yeah the charger that came with it.

    Also for that charge I didn't use it at all.

    I charge using another 5V 1A charger. It takes approx. 1 hr 45 min to go from 30% to 100%.

    If you are using the small charger it came with AND using the phine for games, you are lucky if it charges at all as your phone can use more that what the little charger can output.

    Relax. It's fine, and you can use your phone however you'd like while it's charging.

    Is it OK to use the larger iPad charger to charge the 6S? Does it charge the phone faster? Thanks.

    Yes, it's OK, and yes, it will charge a little faster.

    I'd say around 30-40 minutes. I use a 2.1A charger.

    For basically a full cycle charge (essentially from empty to full)?
