How to Charge Your iPad Mini Faster
« on: November 07, 2012, 05:03:37 PM »
If you bought an iPad Mini, you might have noticed that it came with the same 5-watt charger that Apple ships with the iPhone. The iPad 3, 2 and 1 comes with a 10-watt charger, while the iPad 4 has a 12-watt charger.

Using the 5-watt charger that came with the iPad Mini, we’ve found that it takes around 3-3.5 hours to charge from 0-100%. So, what happens when you use the higher wattage charger? Well, it charges faster!

By using the 10-watt iPad 3 charger, we were able to charge the iPad Mini from 0-100% in about 2.5 hours, a difference of around 25%. Note that it’s not a best practice to regularly juice up your tablet using a charger with a higher wattage than the device’s original.

But if you’re in a pinch and need to charge your Mini as fast as possible, it won’t hurt to occasionally use a 10-watt (or even 12-watt) charger. Be aware of the heat your device generates during its charging time and remove if it becomes too hot.
