The fastest way to charge your iPad

The fastest way to charge your iPad

It’s official, we have the fastest iPad charger according to Matt Buchanan at Gizmodo.

We took the four most common ways to charge an iPad: The iPad’s standard 10W chargerGriffin’s PowerBlock iPad charger, the iPhone’s standard power adapter, and via a MacBook Pro’s USB port. We timed how long it took to bring the battery up to 80%, which is the standard baseline for a “quick” charge. That last 20% goes very slowly to preserve battery life, so doing total time wouldn’t give a fair indication of the charging method.

    Lightning quick. When I get my iPad, I'd use my Macbook to recharge it – But 8 hours is ridiculous compared to 2.5 hours.. Almost a quarter of the time it would normally take! impressive.

    Thanks for this diagram, now I see that your PowerBlock charges an iPad really faster. Frankly speaking I didn`t know about it so far…
