Has anyone else noticed that the iPhone 5 charges incredibly quick? Last night I had 10% battery and within 30 minutes I was up to 76%..

I charged from 1% to 100% in 1hr 40 min. As always the last 10% took proportionately longer.

I noticed the same. Maybe it like the fast " swoosh" when you email. No faster but makes you feel good. Lol.

The IP5 does seem to charge faster which brings a question. I have an external battery that has two USB ports. One is 500Mamps and the other is 1amp. I connected my iPhone to the 1Amp slot and it charged normally. I am wondering if the phone's battery is smart and steps down the voltage. I'd hate to be charging it with too much juice and compromise the battery. Anyone have any clues?
