    I just recently upgraded from the 6s to the 7 Plus this week.

    I love the fact that the 7 Plus has such a larger battery but it seems like it's taking forever to charge. I've never timed it officially but I'd estimate my 6s would charge to full in about an hour and a half. My 7 Plus is taking that long just to get close to 50%. Taking a little over 3 hours to get to full.

    Is this normal? I've owned every iPhone since the 3GS and have never experienced charging speeds this slow.

    Use the iPad 10W/12W charger. The small 5W charger in the box is worthless.

    And yes, it's safe.

    Use an iPad charger and also, a larger battery takes longer to charge.

    6S battery size is 1715 mAh compared to 7 Plus 2900 mAh so at the same charge rate it would take 1.7x longer. Sounds normal.

    This will probably take some getting used to for me....coming from a note that has fast charge.
