    Does anyone know if the watch allows faster charging with the 12w adaptor rather than the standard iPhone 5w charger?

    i can only tell you what the kill a watt says... No difference. it doesn't seem to pull anymore wattage with either charger.

    Anecdotally, the iPad charger I keep next to my desk didn't charge the Watch any faster. In fact, it got unusually warm and needed an hour or two to move from 90%->100%

    The folding pin adapter in the box managed to charge it just as fast, if not faster.

    It might be interesting to have a read through this page:
