Using the same principle as our best selling 'fast charge' micro usb cable, this Lightning cable allows you to dramatically increase charging speed from most PCs, TVs and other USB sockets that would normally be used for transferring data to/from your iDevice. This cable blocks data transfer and allows you to use these USB sockets just like a mains charger.
Note your iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad / iPad Air will not charge faster than it was designed for - usually this is the same speed as charging from the original mains charger. So if you're already charging at maximum speed, this cable won't increase charging speed. Charging speed will also be limited by how much power the USB socket can output.
Most USB sockets will be able to charge iPhones / iPods at their full speed of 1A with this cable, and iPads at upto 2A.
Some iPads can be charged faster by using a charger built to Apple's 2.4A charging spec such as the PortaPow Crystal together with a good quality short sync+charge cable.
