    Default Time to charge

    I use a 2.4 charger and it usually charges my 6s to full in just over an hour from 20%.

    Last night I timed my 7+ from 18% and it took about 2 hours. Is this normal?

    My 7s will charge much faster than that but I use my iPad Pro charger

    Default Time to charge

    Yes, it's normal. The battery in the 7 Plus is quite a bit larger than the battery in the 6s. If you have a 10W or 12W iPad charger you can use that and get a quicker charge.

    I use my iPad Pro charger. Provides a quicker charge, I've found. I haven't exactly timed it though.

    If it's 2.4 amp technically it sjouldbbcharge at faster speed, I usually don't buy 3rd party ones, the charger that comes with iPhone is 1A.
    Personally I would only use iPad pro charger from apple if I'm looking for faster charging. Or Anker powerbanks with smart chip are very good of I ever need a charge during a day.
