Default looking for a faster wall charger

can anyone give recommendations for the xperia z tablet? on a side note, anyone happen to know the maximum amps that it will safely accept? i've seen some iphone chargers that claim 2.4A, but not sure if that would be compatible with an android tablet or if there is some kind of regulator in the sony tablet that would prevent it from accepting more than what the default charger outputs. i'm also wondering about long term effects of using something that has a higher output compared to the stock charger. would that be a reason for concern?

The Xperia Tablet Z has an internal limit of 1.8A. That's 300 mAh more compared to the one that comes with the device (1.5A). You can buy an iPad charger (2.1A). It won't cause any problems, because the device won't recieve the other 300 mAh. If I'm right, those are dissipated with heat on the charger itself.

It's not really recommended to change chargers on your tablet.. i even spoke to Belkin care yesterday i asked if this charger will work with my Tablet Z clicky Belkin said to me even tough it will work, with my Tablet Z. But they do NOT recommend it, as long run it will destroy the battery life... if you really need juice on the move, just pick up a charge pack that Sony sells on there website...

No idea how it affects battery life but the ipad 4 charger will charge the tablet Z in like half the time.
I have tested this myself.
I went back to the orginal charger because i charge overnight anyways and i don't want to kill my battery.

i own ipad charger 2,4A and it helps to charge the tablet only 30% faster, not half time. Original charger doesn't manage to charge the battery from 0% to 100% for 6 hours, so it's no good( The ipad one makes it in 4.15.

I have noticed that it takes much less time to charge the tablet with the latest 4.3 update.

I ended up getting this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
it had a lot of positive reviews, a 6ft. chord and charges at 1.8A, I figured anything over that would be overkill.
