I would have to say AC charger because when I charge my iPhone to my laptop it seems to charge so much slower...seems to at least.
According to dizzy though, after 30 minutes there is only a 10% charge difference.
By the way, dizzy, how did you go about testing the two against each other?

I think the main thing is that as a battery gets more full the voltage difference is less so the flow of charging slows down. So when on the wall outlet their is more available power so after 80% it can still keep up. I kind of think of it as when you fill up your car tires with a little pump...it will start to get louder and heat up the more inflated the tire becomes as it's harder and harder to add that next little bit of air.
At some point I will probably test this again and compare to my earlier results.
- iPhone on and in 3g mode
- iPhone not being used for any data usage or phone calls during charge
- iPhone periodically checked for charge by pressing the home button
- iPhone charged from completely dead battery
