    Hi guys,

    Was thinking of getting an iPad 12W charger to use for charging my iPhone 6 Plus and was wondering how much faster it is at charging?

    As most of you will probably know, charging is kinda slow with the larger battery using the standard 5W charger supplied in the box and I was hoping to speed the charging process up.

    Would appreciate some advice.

    Thanks ;)

    I have seen a few threads say it cuts it in half

    Yeah it's about 2X as fast. I've had my 6+ for a week now and haven't gone below 50% battery yet! Loving it.

    Care to enlighten us on how exactly you managed this ? My guess is that you "rarely" use your phone.

    I don't think he meant that he hadn't charged it in all that time, just that it's never gone under 50%.

    Twice as fast or close to it for me and the Plus as well.
