Here is the occasion: iPad offers a great experience in watching videos, surfing the Internet, etc. on the go. After I use it for about 1.5 hours, the battery runs out. I just get a charger to charge my iPad. However, I find I use the wrong charger - my iPhone charger, since they look almost the same. So is it OK to replace the charger? What are the differences between an iPhone charger and an iPad charger?
After browsing some threads in forums and I find many people are encoutering this problem, e.g.:
1. I don't feel like carting around two chargers. Why can't i use the iPhone charger for iPad?
2. 2. Has anybody ever tried to use an iPad charger to charge the iPhone? Will it damage my iPhone?
If you use the iPhone charger to charge your iPad, you will probably find that it takes quite a long time and sometimes the iPad just gets 60% battery after 4 hours! Why? Have a look at the explanations below:
Although iPad and iPhone chargers look quite the same, the output voltages of the two are different: iPhone charger is 5W while iPad charger is 10W. And the charger's currents are different, too. The iPhone charger's current is 1A while that of the iPad charger is 1.2A.
Each charger is to fit each device although they are all from Apple. Don't charge your iPad with an iPhone charger. It will hurt your iPad and vice versa.
Although the two brothers looked like, but be carefully when you use them. In order to distinguish the two chargers, you‘d better make the clear signs.
