Instead of focusing on improving their cellphone batteries so they last longer without going through the plug, many brands are focusing on charging their smartphones with fast, but very fast, ones that can bring the terminals from 0 to 100% in a few minutes.
Apple is one of the more conservative companies on this point. While Xiaomi is already experimenting with 300W fast charging, which can charge its phones in just five minutes, those of Cupertino “got stuck” at speeds not exceeding 30W.
While Apple’s iPhone phones can charge quickly – albeit not as fast as the competition – you need to use chargers that can deliver that level of performance. And since Apple long ago decided not to include chargers in their phones’ boxes, only the Lightning to USB-C cable, we’ll tell you what they are some of the best fast chargers for iPhone.
How much current can iPhones be charged with?
Apple is pretty tight on providing information on how to charge its iPhone phones, although there is a support page on the subject. It contains the following information:
Starting with the iPhone 8, it is possible to quickly charge the battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes. This requires an Apple USB-C to Lightning cable and one of these adapters:
- USB-C power adapter 18W (iPhone 12 and later requires 20W), 20W, 29W, 30W, 35W, 61W, 67W, 87W, 96W or 140W from Apple (meaning even the most powerful MacBook Pro chargers are used).
- Equivalent USB-C power adapter from an independent vendor that supports USB Power Delivery (USB PD).
If we have a relatively new iPhone, a 20W USB-C power adapter would be more than enough to get that 50% charge in just 30 minutes. Nevertheless, Users with an iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max can enjoy fast charging from 25W to 29W at peak times or based on testing and a 30W AC adapter would be required.
