Charger of ipad 2: About Apple USB power adapters

About Apple USB power adapters

This overview will help you identify a USB power adapter from Apple. Apple USB power adapters and cables are included with many products and are available separately from Apple and authorized Apple resellers.

Customer safety is a top priority at Apple. That’s why all our products—including USB power adapters—undergo rigorous testing for safety and reliability and are designed to meet government safety standards around the world.

As part of our efforts to reach our environmental goals, iPhone models no longer include a power adapter in the box. iPhone continues to work with existing power adapters and USB-A to Lightning cables, such as those included in prior models. iPhone models now include in the box a newer USB‑C to Lightning cable that supports fast charging and is compatible with USB‑C power adapters and computer ports that you might already have. You can use either a USB-A to Lightning cable or the newer USB-C to Lightning cable with your iPhone.

You can use any of the adapters listed below to charge your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or iPod. You can also use a Mac USB-C Power Adapter or third-party adapters that comply with applicable safety standards. For more information about charging your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or iPod, refer to the Safety, Handling, and Support section of the iPhone User Guide, iPad User Guide, Apple Watch User Guide, or iPod User Guide.

      Learn about USB power adapter certifications

      When an iOS or iPadOS device comes with an Apple USB power adapter, that adapter is certified to meet government safety standards in countries and regions where the device is available. Many of these countries and regions, including the United States, have adopted the Safety of Information Technology Equipment standard, IEC/UL 60950-1.

      Apple USB power adapters are designed for use with power sources rated to provide 100V AC to 240V AC at 50Hz to 60Hz. The Type A (flat parallel-blade design) Apple 5W USB, 18W, and 20W USB-C power adapters, as well as the 10W and 12W USB power adapters (with Type A AC plug attached) also comply with the IEC/UL 60950-1 and IEC/UL 62368-1 standards for use with power sources rated to provide 115V AC at 400Hz.

      Can I Use iPhone Charger for iPad?

      It’s a common question: Your iPad and iPhone share the same connector, but their power adapters are different sizes and have different wattage ratings. Let’s say you’re on the go a lot, and you’d prefer not to lug around multiple adapters. Can you use the higher-wattage adapter on both devices?

      The short answer: Yes, you can. And if you want a faster charge, we encourage it. Apple explicitly approves of using its chargers across all devices that accept Lightning cables. That’s because modern electronics have systems to ensure they draw the appropriate amount of power—enough to charge quickly, but not too much that it’ll damage the device. At least not immediately.

      Go Pro.

      Anecdotally (and with confirmation from Apple), iOS devices charge much, much more quickly with a higher-watt wall brick. If you have an iPad Pro, and you charge it with the 29-watt MacBook USB-C charger, it’ll fuel up in half the time compared to the iPad’s included 12-watt charger.

      The difference between either of those chargers and the 5-watt charger that comes with an iPhone will be just as dramatic. That’s because the difference between the iPhone and iPad adapters is the rated amperage. An iPad charge brick is rated to handle 2.1 amps, while the smaller iPhone charger is rated for just 1 amp.

      But the amperage rating is only a measure of the charger’s maximum capability. The actual amperage is determined by the load (i.e., the iPad or iPhone). According to Steve Sandler, founder and chief technical officer of the electronics analysis company AEi Systems, modern battery-powered electronics have a lot of complexity between the charger and the battery, including battery-charging circuits within the device and battery-protection circuits in the lithium-ion battery itself.

      These circuits are designed to manage the flow of electricity to the battery, and if the circuits inside the iPhone were designed to tolerate 1 amp, but are routinely exposed to 2 amps, that could stress the system over time.

      “Even though you may not instantaneously say, ‘Wow, I just destroyed my battery!’ you may limit its life over the long term,” Sandler says, “but you wouldn’t know for a year or more.”

      Our advice: Since Apple claims compatibility between the iPad charger and iPhone, pay for AppleCare (it’s worth it for lots of reasons) and charge your devices with the biggest wall chargers you have. If your battery degrades severely after the first year, make Apple give you a new one.
