I just bought a 6th generation iPad 2018 and was given a 10W charger along with it. I was wondering if I could use an 18W power bank to charge it. Will it damage my iPad?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


As long as the power bank is a USB standards compliant power bank, then it should not harm your iPad.

Note however that even though a power bank or charger might be able to deliver for example 30W (or even more) - it doesn't mean that the iPad will be able to take advantage of that for faster charging. USB-standards compliant power banks and chargers only deliver higher voltages (and thus effect) when specifically asked for it by the device to be charged.

For example a 29W Apple charger will be able to fast charge an iPad Pro, but not an ordinary iPad. It will still charge the iPad, but it won't go faster than usual.
