Best fast charging accessories for iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

Currently, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus support fast charging and compatibility with third-party fast charge accessories. Apple has also unveiled the C 29W USB charger, which will allow the iPhone to charge 50% of the battery in just 30 minutes.

In addition, users can also spend more money to buy a third-party USB Power Adapter (USB PD) adapter and combine it with Apple's C-Lightning USB cable (sold separately for $25).

Here are 5 suggestions for you:

1. Quick Charge USB C 29W


Apple's Quick Charge C 29W is priced high.

Nothing can compare the fast charger produced by Apple itself. However, their price is quite high when compared to this list - 49 USD . In return, accessories provide the strongest performance when connected to a USB C - Lightning cable.

2. Apple Quick Charge 12W


Apple's 12W USB Flash Charger improves iPhone charging time.

Of course, the speed of this charger cannot be as fast as its C 19W USB charger (about 19-20% slower). However, the product has a "soft" price slightly - 19USD. This is a charger for the iPad, offering faster charging speeds than the 5W charging port that comes with it.

3. Fast Charger Anker USB Type C 30W


Anker USB Type C 30W Fast Charger has a reasonable price.

Ever since, the Anker charger has always been customer's favorite and has the brand. With a charging capacity of 30W, the price of this charger is only half that of the Apple Quick Charger C29W. This is the ideal choice for those who prefer fast charging without the ability to pay for Apple's accessories.

4. Anker Power Core + 20100, 6A Type C Mobile Charger


The complex structure of the Anker 6A Type C mobile charger.

This is the fastest charging option available on Apple's iPhone. The price of this accessory is quite "expensive" - $66. In addition to iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the product is also compatible with the 5V (3A) MacBook.

5. Car Charger in Aukey USB C-PD 36W


Aukey USB C-PD 36W ultra-portable charger for car use.

If you need to charge the phone in a car, charging Aukey USB C-PD 36W is quite standard choice because of the attractive price $17. When used, the accessory will let you charge your MacBook quickly or charge your iPhone with speed.

Thank you @Chris Crocker for your post(y), this is great information. I just want to add some information about fast charging. Smartphone batteries charge when a current passes through them. Greater current and higher voltages charge batteries faster, but there’s a limit to what they can take. The charge controller (IC) protects against dangerous spikes in current.

Now in order for the smartphones battery to handle high current voltage and ampere, they developed a much higher battery tolerance in both voltage and ampere. So that, the lower the percentage of your battery the faster it charge because of the high tolerance the battery can consume the charging rate in a faster phase. One factor also is cable wire, simply because this is where the current travel. But there is also a term called resistance, the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Which means if your cable is high on resistance the slower the current or charging. What is the solution? a low resistance high current cable which is the USB C-PD also mentioned by @Chris Crocker at his post.

This are the difference of power factor by cable type:

Now see the USB 3.1 the max power is up to 100W and that's what you call power:p! Let me warn you about using high speed chargers and cables. Always first check your smartphones specification before buying these fast charging accessories. If your smartphones specifies that it can only charge at 5w max power, just use the USB3.0 chargers. Its safer....

Have a great day everyone:coffee:!
