    Has anyone noticed if the lightning cable for the 6 is different from the 5S? Can I still use the same charger for both?

    As far as i know the cables are exactly the same. No worries with interchanging them between devices.

    You know, I called Apple because with the bump up to 2100mAh for the 6 and even larger batter for the Plus you'd think a stronger charger would be necessary. They advised the original lighting chargers for the 5s will work. I compared the new charger for the 6 and 5s and they are the same volts/amps on the unit plug.

    I'm pretty sure they're the same, I wouldn't worry about using them interchangeably

    I already used the 12W iPad Air charger with my 5S and I'll continue to do so with the 6 Plus.

    They should be the same, I can use the one from my rMini to charge my 6 and vice versa

    Yes, that's correct. I believe the Plus is just over 2900 over 3000.

    What about using a iPad charger with the Lightning cable? Can you use it?
