    Isn't the WATTS (A) pulled from the charger regulated by the device itself? Have no idea why the charger would matter in your case in regards to heating things up.

    Cheers

    The OP most probably is thinking the iPad Pro is not regulating the charge ~ hence why he/she is finding the iPad hot to the touch.

    Question to the OP:- When you say ‘Hot’, define how hot this is?
    My 12.9 iPad Pro gets ‘very warm’ when using the 29W charger but remains cold to the touch with the 12W charger.
    This is to be expected as the 29W is pushing energy at the highest and safest charge rate, which in turn means you will get some form of heat build up. :)

    All devices heat up during charging, the question is how much?

    You’re right it’s likely due to the extra charge that’s causing more heat

    I know when I had a s7 edge it got very arm during fast charging which is basically what it is when charging the Pro with this cable.
