    Has anyone been able to determine if the iPhone SE will fast charge like the iPhone 6/6S when using a 10/12w iPad charger?

    Just for a history review, previous iPhone models up to and including the 5S would only draw a maximum of 1 amp (5W). The larger more powerful iPad charger would still charge the phone, but it would not charge the iPhone faster than the 5W charger.

    When the iPhone 6 was released, even though they included the 5w iPhone charger, if the iPad 10w/12w charger was used instead, the iPhone 6/6S would charge using the 2.1a/2.4a rate, charging it much faster.

    I haven't been able to figure out it the iPhone SE supports the faster 2.1/2.4 amp charging or not. Does anyone know?

    One of the best features I'm going to miss, leaving the Note 5. You could plug the Note in for 5 to 10 minutes and get a 20 to 40% bump in battery.
