You are probably comparing Nokia's AC-3 (the "Compact Charger", usually
bundled with mobile phones) and the AC-4 (the "Travel Charger", the one
bundled with all Nokia Internet Tablets).  The AC-3 is smaller, but it
outputs a 2x lower current than the AC-4.  Google provides some
anecdotic evidence that charging the battery with an AC-3 takes twice as
long: http://discussions.nokia.co.uk/discussions/board/message?board.id=phones&message.id=21453
