Can you use a new iPad charger on an iPhone 4?

Is it safe to use a new iPad charger on an iPhone 4? They're different chargers - right?

Yeah but the new one is more heavy duty isn't it?

I've charged iPod Touch and iPhone 4S with the charger of the iPad 2 without problems....

Well it will charge and isn't dangerous but the second page gets a bit heavy but broadly those two posts say don't as could reduce battery longevity.

Yeah, I guess you shouldn't do it regularly....

Of course if you upgrade iphones annually that's sep.

Is the battery covered by Apple's warranty?

No idea tbh, I'd guess at no but it'd just be that. Mind you I only just found out that their refurbs get new battery fitted as well as the case yesterday...

Yeah under the one year warranty and applecare seemingly.
Found this on US site
Your one-year warranty includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. You can extend your coverage to two years from the date of your iPhone purchase with the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone. During the plan’s coverage period, Apple will replace the battery if it drops below 50% of its original capacity.

Then after more digging this on uk site.
If your iPhone requires service due to the battery's diminished ability to hold an electrical charge and it is not covered under Apple's warranty, the AppleCare Protection Plan, or statutory consumer rights, Apple will service your iPhone for a service fee
Service arranged through Apple costs £ 55.00. A £ 7.44 shipping fee will be added if you arrange service online or by calling Apple Technical Support.

£62.44 for a battery outside of waranty. Hmm
