    Default iPad 4 charger

    Don't know if anyone caught this, but with the 4 the official charger has been bumped to 12W from 10W. Got mine today, and that was the first thing I noticed. Surprised I haven't seen anything about it, since its a pretty clear acknowledgement that the 10W wasn't powerful enough.

    Default iPad 4 charger

    It was in all the initial reviews when it first came out last month.

    Hmmm must have missed that.

    Edit: I just checked a few, and none mentioned it.

    Charging seems slower to me for some reason... Maybe it's my imagination lol.

    As Karen pointed out, it was included in the original announcement... and I would stop far short of saying that a 10w power supply wasn’t powerful enough. It was good for all of my iPads that I’ve owned... but the 12w power supply will do the job a bit faster.

    I don't really pay attention I norm plug it in and go to bed and take it off whenever I get up and it's done .. I do this prob every 5 days or so .. I do the same with my phone nightly unless I'm away from my home and didn't bring a charger

    I notice when I plugged it in and I am using it. Maybe that's why it takes so long to charge lol. It seemed faster on iPad 2.

    It was faster, but only because the 2 had a much smaller battery.
