Does this shock anyone? Does this mean it'll be quite slow at charging?
No because it uses a significantly smaller batter.
If you want you can use a larger charger, like from an iPad.
Anyone thinking of getting the 12w charger? Who knows if it will actually charge the mini faster, but it should.
it use 5w charger???? r u for real? let me check
Here come the complaints about how fast it charges and it is not even out yet! You Apple people are OCD to the MAX!
So I cn use my iPhone charger? Sweet.
Ugggh more fail.
Half the battery and half the charger of the iPad3. 6-8hr charging time agajn.
Isn't it half the battery but same charger as the iPad 3? I thought the 12w charger was new for the iPad4.
Anyway. the iPad 2 wasn't bad with charge times so is this really a big deal or not? I'm willing to buy a spare 12w if it is.
iPad 3 came with a 10W charger.
It's also ~3x that of the iPhone 5.
where are u getting this 5W?
I looked on Apple.com and seen nothing about that and the iPad mini.
I do remember reading the following from 9to5mac: "In case you were wondering, Apple also told us that the iPad mini would come with a 12W adapter as well, which means we could see much quicker charges for Apples smaller tablets in addition to the new Retina iPad."
+1 I remember that too. I searched after seeing this thread and saw no mention of a 5w charger for the mini anywhere.
I was glad to see this. Means it uses same charger as my iPhone 5, so I only have to take one charger when I travel.
Probably referring to the fact that the mini shows a 5W charger in the "what's in the box" photos in the Apple store app. At first, so did the iPad 4. But that one has been updated.
Surely you would just taken the larger of the two if it was different?
When I ordered via the Apple Store app, it listed the 5W adapter under accessories. So I'm assuming it's coming with the 5W adapter instead of the 10 or 12 W units. I'd be happy to be wrong, if it means quicker charges.
I looked at the 5W charger in the apple store and there it said it's compatible with a whole bunch of idevices including the ipad mini. Ofcourse it can be delivered with the 10/12W charger but I doubt it...
I often charge my iPhone and iPad with the stock iPhone or stock iPad charger, depending what I have with me, and neither of the devices have blown up yet. So...
It says in the box is the 5w charger. Unless they fit the 10w charger into the 5w body as there is now a 12w charger that looks like the 10w one.
I bought an extra 10w charger with my current iPad, I am hoping it allows faster charging and isn't a limitation on the iPad's battery itself.
Third party news outlet vs. Apple's actual spec? Which to believe, hard choice.
The 12w also says it's compatible with the mini.
I won't be heart broken if comes with a 5w one because that will mean the charger I have in my car will work. I'd rather have a 12w for faster times with the mini and iP5.
It comes with a 5w. Deal with it. Want faster, just pay $20 for the 12w.
