Fast Charging Comparison on iPhone X
Fantastic comparison of wired (5W, 12W, 18W, 29W, 30W, 87W), and wireless (5W, 7.5W) charging speeds on iPhone X by Juli Clover, at MacRumors.
Two things stand out to me:
- Getting to 50% is noticeably quicker with fast-chargers (30 minutes vs. over 60 minutes with the 5W charger in the box)
- After an hour of charging, the difference between the 12W iPad charger and the fast-chargers is negligible (~7%)
It’s not really worth it using the 5W charger that the iPhone ships with if you can help it, because it’s incredibly slow.
Would a 12W charger in the box have been too much, Apple?
