    Hey everyone I forgot my iPad charger at work (classic) so I'm stuck with my iPhone charger all weekend. Is It ok to use it to charge my iPad or will it damage my battery?

    Thanks

    No, you can use without any problems. It will just take a little longer to charge, but it is still safe to use.

    iPad charger is 5-10 times more powerful than iPhones and much faster I understand.

    Your understanding is incorrect. They are identical - though I cannot tell you how I know that, it's a fact.

    You don't have to believe what you read. All you have to do is charge the iPad on the iPhone charger and see how long it takes in comparison.
