IPhone 3GS vs iPad power adapter

Went out for lunch and left my old iPhone 3GS charging with the iPad adapter. The result can be seen on the picture below.

As you can see, the 10w iPad power adapter was not nice to the iPhone battery (which should be using a 2.5w power adapter).

That’s why one should always read the device specifications before connecting things to the power outlet.
