    I've just found out that the iPhone 6 and 6 plus support faster charging, my iPhone 6 just went from 25% to 100% in less than 1 hour, that's quite impressive I though

    I noticed that as well how fast it charges. That is great news.

    They charge faster if you use a 10 watt charger like the one that comes with the bigger iPads rather than the 5 watt charger that comes with the phones.

    Doesn't that negatively impact long term battery life?

    Does using a higher watt charger affect the phone at all..like the ability to hold a charge? I thought someone told me before not to use my 10 watt iPad charger for my phone...

    I have been using my iPad charger (iPad 2) since I got it, and never noticed a difference in the speed that the phone charges (haven't received my iPhone 6+ yet) or have I experienced any issue with battery life.

    Using an iPad charger will not negatively affect the iPhone's battery life.
