Su­per­charged

Mac|Life - - REVIEWS -

With pre­vi­ous iPad Pros, Ap­ple pro­vided a 12W USB–A charger that would take more than four hours to take a fully drained bat­tery back to 100 per cent. That’s of­ten not a big prob­lem, pro­vided you re­mem­ber to plug in the iPad Pro overnight to top it up.

We al­ready knew that adding one of Ap­ple’s 29W USB–C power adapters and a suit­able charg­ing ca­ble re­duces the charg­ing time to around two and a half hours.

With this third gen­er­a­tion of iPad Pro, though, Ap­ple in­cludes a new 18W USB–C charger that can take the iPad Pro from 0 to 100 per cent in just over three hours. Still not the fastest, but a big im­prove­ment — prob­a­bly enough of one that you’ll be in even less of a rush to drop an ex­tra $49 on the 30W USB–C charger Ap­ple in­tro­duced a few months back (and bun­dles with the Mac­Book Air).
