it gets warmer than with the normal one.hey guys I got a 29w charger and USB-C to lightning cable off of ebay and they both say OEM but is there a way to test if it is actually fast charging? Or is there anything on the adapter I can look at to make sure it’s fast charging
Although I chose to reply directly to your message, I don't mean to single you out personally. However, why are so many people intent on finding alternatives to the Apple branded USB-C to Lightning cables? I realize they are expensive, but is it really worth the risk?The hardest part seems to find alternative high amp charge cables from usbc to lightning

EDIT: ...and the "charger(s)" too...why risk it?
EDIT2 (to contribute to the topic): I have not yet read about any third-party cables successfully fast charging an iPP.
I would agree with you in general (use included/recommended accessories by manufacturer) but in this case specifically there are too many reasons:
1) Apple does not include a proper fast charger in the IPP box
2) Apple fast charger requires an additional purchase, USBC cable, also not included
3) iPad Pro takes a lot of time to recharge using included accessories
4) Because of the portability nature of an iPad, you need extra chargers for home/office/travel
5) Some iPad owners also have MacBooks so they want to use dual/triple output chargers on the go to charge their devices (phone, tablet, laptop) out of a single socket/charger
6) There are interesting alternative charging methods with USBC (batteries, extremely light / travel chargers, car chargers, multiple outlet / hubs)
7) Apple's current solution is both expensive and cumbersome (not light, single output), far from ideal for a travel companion
Apple is also know for creating an accessory industry around its products, that's why there are so many alternative headphones, cables, speakers, cases with MFI official certification.
No one here is talking about cheap knockoffs but rather good quality alternatives that would attend to other needs as well as not so deep pockets.
PS thanks for saying it was not personal, I understand your point and it's a valid concern that is why I took the time to respond
I'll add that Apple's cables tend to tear way too easily on the cable-side of the connectors. It happens frequently and for a cable that is way too pricey to need to be replaced that often. Thus the desire for braided and well-made 3rd party cables.
I just wish someone would hurry up and come out with one that supports fast charging already.
