Apple Design New Fast Charging iPad Plugs

October 29th, 2012

If you are the owner of an iPad 3, 3rd generation iPad or New iPad (some of the names for the device at the moment!), then you will hate the time it takes to charge up the tablet. Of course, the gorgeous high gloss retina display means that the tablet has a rather large battery hidden inside which takes a long time to charge.

Well, Apple have heard people’s cries on how long it takes and how frustrating it is and have now created a 12W “Power Brick” to allow people to charge their Apple iPad 3 faster than before.¬†Of course, the new accessory is compatible with both the 3rd and 4th generation models of the iPad as both have the retina display and the large battery packs.

The current mains adaptor/charger that ships with the iPads is a 10 watt adaptor, with the new Power Brick being 12 watts it certainly brings power to the iPad faster than ever before. But, will this make the iPad hot? On the launch of the iPad 3/New iPad people were complaining about the heat coming off the device, now with charging the tablet quicker will it get hotter?

I certainly hope not…
