    Hello,

    Maybe we have this topic here already but couldn't find it. I am charging my 7+ via charger I got with it, 5W, but I can see that this one can be used too Apple 12W USB Power Adapter - Apple

    Any negative sides of using this with iPhone? Will it damage battery over time? is anyone here using 12W?

    As long as they're OEM/Made for i certified, no problem... No-name brand el-cheapo chargers...there could be issues.

    There's no issue, itweaks did a video on using different adapters, it will charge faster then the voltage will drop off the closer you get to 100% only for certified products though

    Yes you can use it. I have used my iPad charger on my 6+, 6S+, and now my 7+ with no issues. The advantage is a quicker charger, and I have not personally come across any disadvantages.

    I was using it and went back to the small cube that came with the phone just to be safe.

    Ok nice, I will then consider buying OEM 12W charger

    If it charges faster, I don't see any disadvantage

    Why would it be an issue? I mean, it's not like the phone isn't working correctly? You have an iPhone with excellent battery life so enjoy it...

    Yes, everything is fine and dandy now but it could shorten the life of your battery in the long run.

    Yes. I actually use both the iPad and iPhone charger for charging my iPhones and never had any problems.

    Apple would like you to purchase a new iPhone every couple of months. Just saying.

    I use my iPad Pro charger for my 7+. I see no issues. I used it on my 6S previously as well with no problems. It actually provides a slightly faster charge in my experience.
