    Does anyone charge their iPhone with their 10W iPad charger? I do and I see it charges my iPhone noticeably faster than the regular iPhone charger. I wonder if ultimately I'm harming my iPhone. Any thoughts/comments/opinions are greatly appreciated.

    I wondered about that myself in the past - but never enough to look or (egads) try it... however, according to the Apple website, it appears to be "ok" to do:

    Apple iPad 10W USB Power Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

    The various iPhones and iPod models are listed in the "compatible with" section of the page...

    Thanks Hank. I actually have that additional iPad charger with the 6 foot cord that you linked. And after reading a few Q&A's on that page, I think its ok to charge my iPhone with.

    I do. I went to the apple store hoping to buy a daisy chain solution to make the USB cable longer by like a foot and the genius person told me that this iPad charging thing would work perfectly and charge it faster. It definitely does. I just hope it doesn't fry my phone.

    It does say on the box that it's for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPod Nano.

    OMG really?! I'll be damned if this doesn't solve my biggest iPhone peeve - the charging cable is too short! There's a 6 ft. one?? Looks like I'm hitting up the Apple Store today...

    Exactly. I am not using anything to charge my iPad or my iPhone unless it comes from Apple. I personally don't think it will fry our phones, and it sure does charge it faster.
