    hey guys,

    What is the wattage of your iPad Air 3 charging brick ? I can’t seem to find a concise answer and I figure the best method to find out is to ask owners.
    Looking for the original charger wattage only. Canadian owners preferably as well.

    Only because supposedly the USA gets 12W chargers and Canada gets 10W. Lots of confusion here.

    I think it’s just random distribution. Apple sources the power bricks from two suppliers. Foxlink makes 10W and Flextronics makes 12W. Probably just up to chance which one you get.

    Spoke to Apple support and supposedly Canada gets 10W only and USA gets 12w. Looks like we got the shaft in the great white north lol

    My iPad Air 3 came with a 12w charger. I live in the US.

    Unsure if it’s for all but so far in my life I’ve always only seen 10w chargers bundled with any low-end to mid-range ipad model here in Sweden. The only 12w adapter I have is one that I bought in the NYC apple store. Thought that was a US thing basically. Maybe related to some regulation or law?
