Faster charging for the Apple 12.9" iPad Pro? It’s finally here.
How to charge your iPad faster? Is your iPad not charging fast enough?...
The 12.9 inch iPad Pro is the perfect tablet for power users and professionals. It’s powerful, fast, and the touchscreen display is ultra-sharp and big enough for applications to work side-to-side.
This high-end tablet is also the first of its kind to support Apple Pencil, one of the most advanced stylus pens on the market, whose pressure sensitivity is not only extremely accurate, but also capable of detecting the angle at which the pen is held, which is a feature unique to the Apple Pencil.
The only problem with the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, is the time it takes to recharge its battery. Out of the box, the 12.9 inch iPad Pro comes with a 12W charger, which is grossly inadequate, when it comes to recharging the iPad while in use. Charging the iPad Pro overnight is also problematic as the battery rarely reaches 100% charge when the battery drops to less than 30% during regular use.
Finally, Apple has released a new 29W USB Type-C compatible charger for the iPad Pro, which turns charging the 12.9 inch tablet a breeze. All you need is the combination of the Apple Lightning to USB-C Cable and the Apple 29W USB-C Type Charger.
Cost versus gain
The new power adapter is priced at $49, while the 1 m USB Type-C to Lightning cable is $25. While the price of upgrading to the new charger may seem a little steep, there are at least two factors to take into consideration. First of all, if history teaches anything, paying a premium for an Apple certified accessory is a much better investment in terms of safety for any device, as we have pointed out a while back ago in reference to third party cheap MacBook chargers. Finally, faster charging means more time spent using the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, even while plugged in.
A 29W charger is a huge leap, compared to the 12W, the latter of which is not capable of charging the iPad Pro fast enough while the device is in use, especially when using hardware intensive apps like games and video editing.
