Anyone ever count and see how long it takes to charge the phone with an iPad charger vs the normal charger? I know the plus takes a long time with the standard charger. Anyone know if it'll kill the battery faster if I use the iPad charger all the time?

Using the iPad charger with the 6 Plus is fine. I never use the standard charger with my 6 Plus.

The iPad charger will charge your phone about 20% faster and will not do any harm to your battery life or phone. As Napoleon stated, the phone determines the charging rate and it will not accept a higher charging rate than the battery can safely accommodate.

I use the iPad charger all the time and I swear it charges the 6+ twice as fast, so I can only imagine how fast it would charge the 6 since the battery is smaller.
