Note a couple of errors from Amazon: First, the product description is for a completely different product, the MagSafe laptop charger, not this USB iPad charger; second, Amazon implies this only works on Lightning connector iPads etc. With respect to the Lightning connector, since this doesn't come with ANY connector, technically it won't even work with the iPad 4 etc. ... unless you used the connector that came with your device, D'oh. Similarly it will work with the old style connector on old style devices - assuming you have both (device and connector). Likewise it will work with other devices, even non-Apple products, if they power off a USB port and you have the connecting cable for that 3rd party device.

There's no need to buy the older 10 watt model of this Apple iPad charger. This is the one that was introduced with the iPad 4 to allow faster charging (20% faster in theory) and it is backwards compatible with all iOS devices from the original iPhone through the Touches and up to the tablets. It may (or may not) charge SOME of the Apple devices faster than the original chargers that came with them (hopefully, for example, the iPad 3) - Apple has a way of reading the power capacity of its devices and providing more power if it is safe. If it is NOT safe to deliver more power on an Apple device, the charger will revert to a lower power mode for safe charging.

With non-Apple products, the odds are this charger will revert to 5 watt or even lower USB power standards to protect third part devices. Even if the third party device is a tablet that would be happy with more power and can in fact draw more power from its own stock charger.

What this means in terms of actual use is this:

This item came within two days. It was packaged well and is a real Apple product, not a knock off. Priced cheaper than the Apple Store.

Length: 8:25 Mins
Everything about this adapter looks genuine to me. The small package in which it comes looks well made, and it even had a safety seal; The user's manual and the Apple warranty information; And the adapter itself looks really nice quality, properly assembled and looks resistant.

About the adapter:
- Model: A1401
- Compact design, approximately 45 mm wide, 45 mm long and 28 mm in height (good or bad depending on the user)
- Glossy white surface
- Input: 100-240V, 0.5A, 50-60 Hz
- Output: 5.2V - 2.4A
- Designed by Apple in California, Assembled in China

The adapter is smaller than I imagined, which is a good thing in my opinion. The only Apple device I currently own is a 4th Gen iPod Touch, and it works perfectly with this adapter.

Plugs can be exposed or hidden with a 90º turn.

Using it with a 4th Gen Apple iPod Touch, and no problems so far.

Giving it 4 stars so far because I started using it today. I'll this review in some time (weeks, maybe), and I'll upload a video for all those who might find it useful.

UPDATED - OCTOBER 19th, 2014
Gave 5 stars. This adapter is still working flawlessly and going strong! It charges mi iPod Touch 4G amazingly fast. I recommend it to everyone.

I order from Amazon regularly and seldom have any problem or disappointment.
I opened (3) of these last nite.
Each arrived in a small Apple box that indicated (12W) inside.
Actually there was a (10W) inside EACH.
Two of them have a bent prong.
Two, if not three, of them appear pre-owned.
One of those two has the lettering that includes "10W" rubbed off and is covered with blue scuff marks.
All (3) boxes looked as though they had just arrived from Apple...but that's where it stopped.

This newer version power adapter is the same one that now comes included with the newest lightning connector iPads released in late 2012. If you are like me, and are ordering a spare adapter, make sure you get the 12W version. It is replacing the 10W version and will charge all your iOS devices - just a little faster the the old 10W version will.

The used iPod 5W adaptor are printed as "iPod USB Power Adaptor".
The used iPod 5W adaptor is re-packaged in a new sealed Apple box labeled "12W USB Power Adapter", "MD836LL/A Model: A1401".

I purchased 4 new Apple Boxes. 3 of the 4 iPod Adaptors show my iPad 1 as charging. But as a used iPod 5W charger, I expect the performance of a used iPod Adaptor. And so should you. Thank you.

UPDATE: Called Amazon, (Ross B), Nice guy with integrity. Returned items. He will have Amazon look into the product that is labeled, packaged and sold as a new 12w USB adaptor but contains a used iPod adaptor.
I don't know how they will inform if and when this discrepancy is rectified.

I purchased 4 of these items in July, 2013 and promptly stored them as backup stock. Lesson Learned: Open all packages to confirm product and functionality. Even if the packages are sealed and look brand new.
Thank you.

I didn't realize the USB cable didn't come with it, but I didn't need it anyway- it charges great and is handy to have an extra charger around.
