    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.

    It won't decrease battery life, or ruin the battery faster, since it charges quicker?

    No. The phone's charging circuitry will only accept the proper charging strength and rates.

    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.
