Charge iphone using ipad power brick?
I recently got the ipad2. With it came a more powerful brick. I notice when charging my ipad using my iphone power brick it takes FOREVER to charge. When using the ipad one, it goes much faster. I only like to have 1 of these around since I can interchangably charge either device which needs charging at the time. Question is, would it be ok for me to use the ipad charger which has a higher output to charge my iphone, or will it damage the battery?

Now for the reverse, I do charger my iPhone all the time with the iPad charger and it seems to work perfectly fine. I heard that the iPhone will only draw what it needs.
EDIT: Apple iPad 10W USB Power Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)
It says : "It also charges iPhone and all iPod models with a dock connector."

it will in a long run, it will not affect your iPhone as of now, but after a while you WILL start to notice decrease in battery usage, there is a reason they make separate bricks for each iDevice..all iPhones do eventually need a battery swap, your just speeding up the process
