New charger for Ipad mini 5

  Govan1x 13:20 06 Apr 2018

Bought a new iPad 5 in Australia and it came with the Aussie power adapter.

So now that it is in the UK thought that I would get a new uk power adapter for it.

Checked a few places + Apple and it seemed that the 12 volt charger was for that iPad.

So a bit late but checked the Aussie power adapter and it said 10 vaults.

My wifes old iPad uses a 10 vault charger.

So the question is will the 12 vault adapter do any damage or does it just charge quicker and safe to use.

You are confusing watts and volts.

Apple chargers are 10watts and 12watts. Either can be used.

Ok bremner thanks for that. Eyesight not as good as it was. Even used a magnifying glass and I still got it wrong.

Will be opening another thread shortly about iPhone.

Apple official chargers to my knowledge are 29W USB‑C, 12 & 5 Watt. Not a good idea to use a 5 Watt charger for an iPad.
