    I think I read somewhere that the Ipad 4 and the mini has a high watt charger, so they charge faster. Can I buy one of these and plug it in and charge My Ipad 3 so it charges faster?

    Only if the iPad 3's charging circuitry allows the extra two watts.

    Anybody done a test on this? Because my first guess on this is, it won't since it was built with the 10 watt version in mind.

    This has been confirmed in articles of testing on both Engadget and Gizmodo as well as some other weblogs I have read as well.

    Nice! So Apple actually designed the circuit properly. Good to hear.
