Alongside the iPad Mini launch the other day, Apple quietly rolled out a meatier, 12-watt power adapter. Turns out it will charge all the old iPads iterations quicker.
Apple has confirmed to 9to5mac that the new 12W iPad power adapter will charge old iPads quicker than the older 10W adapters. Apple explained:
"We don't have an exact percentage of how much faster it would charge but you should see an increase in speed."
Apple has also confirmed that the iPad Mini will ship with a 12W adapter, so you can expect speedy charging for the little 'un, too. If you want to upgrade your adapter to charge your existing iPad faster, it costs $19 from Apple. [Apple via 9to5mac]
