    I heard the new iphone 6's battery has an increased battery charging capability but still ships with a low 1A charger (might be wrong with number maybe its 0.5 or 1.5). But the phone is actually capable of 3A which would charge much fastee.

    Is there a cube, or other type of wall dock that has an increased power output?

    Thanks!

    Get the iPad power brick. Much faster.

    It's called the iPad charger.

    Fast charging is actually 2.1A (the iPad power brick gives that power).

    The iPhone ships with a 1A charger.

    I occasionally use my iPad charger and even though I haven't timed the charging of my iPhone 6 plus with this charger it certainly seems to be quicker.

    I have always used a single iPad charger to charge all of my Apple devices. Works perfectly with no harm.

    Fine with mine too and it does say on  website that it's compatible.

    This isn't new to the iPohne 6.

    I used to use my iPad charger to charge my iPhone 3GS, and it was a lot faster.

    I've been using one since the iphone 4. Now it might be coincidental, but my iPhone 4 did stop working lol. Wouldn't turn on or charge. Might be the effect of the iPad charger, but that doesn't stop me from charging my 5c with one.

    No iPhone before the 6 and 6+ charged faster with the iPad charger, only the iPhone 6 and 6+ can draw the full power from an iPad charger. Any iPhone prior the the 6 and 6+ only would draw the normal 1amp and 5v even from an iPad charger.

    The device determines the amount of power it can draw not the charger.

    Many people, including my wife who has the 5s, claim otherwise based on experience.

    Absolutely not true. Read the above links.

    The 6 and 6+ are the first iPhones able to take advantage of the larger charger. The 6+ will actually deliver more power into the battery. The 6 will only see an improvement if you are actively using the phone while charging because the charge rate to the battery remains constant, but the larger charger gives the device headroom to run the screen/cpu/etc without reducing the charge rate.

    I mean, because that's what we're all chasing here with our posts at MR, right?

    That's like getting the reviewers' critiques back but never following up and so your results never get published in a peer-reviewed journal. But, yeah, as far as armchair analyses go, that's what we strive for.

    The results in those threads were pretty iron-clad. The people asking the questions by and large didn't really understand the problem in the first place, so the questions weren't really asking the right thing. Further, of those who did ask decent questions, they didn't offer any proof showing that what was measured was wrong - they merely highlighted ways that the tests could be even better. But it did not invalidate the tests.

    Correct and that's the reviewers' job. I'm a scientist for a living and I can tell you that the current results from the various tests would not be accepted in a peer-reviewed journal (at least those with high impact factors) without further refinement. But, yes, the tests are not invalidated.

    Just google it, the information is everywhere.

    Meaningless. Non-peer reviewed claims are everywhere too.

    Who cares its been shown over and over iPhones prior the the 6 only draw 1a. I don't need a peer review to tell that.

    Here is a quick nonscientific video showing just that.

    and thats not the only one showing the same results.

    Not everything needs to be peer reviewed to be the truth. :eek:
