So apple decided they were going to add fast charging, but they did NOT do like most other OEMs and give us the charger in the box. They will pull a fast one, and put it in the box on the NEXT generation of the iPhone in 2018 sadly. However, you do not have to go out and spend $100 to get faster charging on your new iPhone.
The cables that apple are trying to sell you are way over priced, coming in at $25 or $35. The power brick will set you back another $49…which crazy.
Anyone that goes out and spends this type of money on a charger, could easily save lots by just using an iPad charger instead. I know it’s not a 29W like the charger they are trying to sell you, but it’s not a good buy in my opinion. The power brick is nothing more than the one being sold with the new USB Type C MacBook’s, and it’s clearly on the website as so.
If you want to charge your phones faster, just use an iPad charger. They are 12W, and that is twice as much as the charger that comes in the box and then some. They are only 5W for the iPhone charger, and that is just crazy. You can find an iPad Charger online for pennies on the dollar now a days, so take that route instead of going the route the Apple is trying to convince you to do. Hit the Video at the break.
