It’s not widely known, but there is in fact fast charging for iPhones. This is all started with the iPhone X, and iPhone 8. Before that, you couldn’t fast charge an iPhone, but with these new ones being released that are Power Delivery compatible, you’re able to charge them at the same charging speed that a Quick Charge compatible smartphone is able to be charged at.
However, the use of Power Delivery means using a USB-C port and a USB-C cable, and yet, the current iPhones that are Power Delivery compatible still use a Lightning port.
The solution to fast charging your iPhone with a USB-C port is to use a USB-C to Lightning charging cable.
In this mini-review, we’re taking a look at CHOETECH’s Lightning to USB-C charging cable.
The first thing that most people worry about when it comes to a cable that they’re buying is the length. A short cable makes it difficult to use as you have less access to the phone that you’re charging. We’re happy to say that this cable has a 2-meter length (6.5 feet), and so there’s definitely a lot of space to move the cable around and to use your iPhone while it’s charging.
Then there’s the build quality of the cable, just by looking at the cable from the window through the box that it comes in, it looks tough, and it feels tough too.
The cable has a TPE insulation on the top, in the center there’s Aluminum shielding, and at its core, the cable makes use of 23 AWG wiring. With all that material, the durability of this cable can withstand 10,000 bends.
What can it be Used With?
If you’re wondering what’s the compatibility range for this CHOETECH cable, CHOETECH states that the cable is made for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. So you don’t have to be used for only Power Delivery compatible Apple products, it’s universal.
Of course, the best part of getting this cable is being able to fast charge your iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone 8 and iPhone XR. In this review, with the image above, we’re using Aukey 60W USB-C Power Delivery desktop charger, and we’re charging an iPhone XS.
Overall, this CHOETECH Lightning to USB-C Power Delivery support cable is one of the best on the market, as it features a long length, great build quality and is able to be universally used with most of Apple’s products.
Fast charging has finally arrived for iPhones and we feel that everybody should take part in it. The unfortunate part though is that even the newest iPhones still come with a slow 5W charger.
Below, we’ve listed a few Power Delivery chargers that you could use along with this cable to fast charge your iPhone.
