    Instead of having two lightening cables I'd like to use only one. Are they the same?
    I ask, as it is taking awhile to charge my iPad4 past 91%.

    Yes they are the same and there should be no harm or damage done to your device.

    Yes. But it will charge slowly as you are experiencing. It's made for a 12 watt charger. You are using a 5 watt.

    May I switch, thus using the provided iPad charger to charge my iTouch5?
