    I notice there are a lot of 3rd party 29w chargers. Does anyone use one or know of any that are of good quality? Or do the experts here not recommend using 3rd party? I know obviously Apple doesn’t but that’s to be expected. $60 here in Canada is a lot, plus the cable as well.

    What’s wrong with your current charger? I mean, does it not charge sufficiently for you?

    Well it charges yes, but slowly. It would be nice to charge faster but not spend $100 for apple branded if the 3rd party devices would suffice.

    I understand. I typically charge overnight while I’m asleep so a faster charger for me is unnecessary. Anyway, thank you for replying and I hope members will offer their recommendations and advice soon. Take care...

    I'm generally a cautious person and always stick to official Apple accessories. Just because I know I can trust the quality and it will last me a long time Vs a 3rd party charger which may not last as long. 😃

    That being said, if I were to buy a 3rd party charger. I would look at all the reviews on Amazon and see what people say. If they seem happy then give it a go.

    I do agree, Apple prices are a bit much. Especially for chargers, cables & adapters.

    I tend to stick with Apple accessories, mainly because I'm a little paranoid when it comes to electricity and my ~$1,000 investments. However, I have done some research and purchased a few 3rd party charging accessories. The only two brands I have trusted enough for this are Anker and Zerolemon. They seem to be well known and trusted brands when it comes to charging accessories.

    Has anyone actually used the 29w USB-C charger yet? How quickly does it charge your iPad?

    I haven't had the chance to try third party 29w chargers. I charge my iPP overnight and it prevents me from buying an additional charger
