Hi everyone!

I've got an iPhone 4s and I've bought yesterday the new iPad Air... Amazing!

However, I was thinking of using my iPhone charger (which is smaller than the other) when I'm at the university.

But, I've noticed these details:

 

iPhone 4s/5 charger:

 

- Input: 100 - 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 0.15A

- Output: 5V --- 1A

 

iPhone Air charger:

 

- Input: 100 - 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 0.15A

- Output: 5.2V --- 2.4A

 

What are the effects of using the iPhone charger for the iPad???
In my opinion, it will take more time to charge, is it correct???

 

Thanks

Phil

Use a phone charger for the iPad youi'll get a 'not charging' warning and it'll charge much slower.

 

If you want to use only one charger, use the iPad one for both devices. The iDevices have circuitry in them so that you can use the more powerful charger for devices that need less input.
