iPad Pro 18W USB-C Charger (2018)

This charger came with the 2018 super slim iPad Pro, the one with Face ID and have magnets for the Apple Pencil to stick to. It is a USB-C charger. It is small. As small as the 5W iPhone charger that was shipped with every iPhone since the iPhone 3G. It is also slight fatter than the iPad Air charger. The legs can be flatten - this is the same charger design that shipped with Apple Watch Series 3. Some really thoughtful and delightful designs. Here are a couple of comparison pictures.
The charger is 18W. And yet, it can charge a MacBook Pro 13” (without Touch Bar)! You read it right! This little guy can charge a MacBook Pro, albeit very, very, very slowly. The MBP shipped with a 61W charger that’s three times in size.

This makes the 18W charger super handy when travelling or when you need to lighten your bag in your daily commute. And with the right cable, this USB C charger can fast charge your iPhone 8, X, XS, XR. That means, 30 minutes of fast charge can give you 50% battery life! …
