What is the full charging time for the Apple iPhone SE 3 (2022)?

(Last Updated On: November 17, 2023)

Apple introduced the iPhone SE 3 (2022) at its Peek Performance event, offering it as an affordable option. This phone, priced at $429, maintains the older design similar to the iPhone 8 from 2017 but packs powerful features like 5G and the A15 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 13 series. Available in Red, Midnight, or Starlight, it’s wise to get a protective case for its glass build. Note that the box doesn’t include a charging brick.

Wondering about its charging time? Here’s a quick summary:

  • The iPhone SE 3 wasn’t used during charging, had Wi-Fi on, and no SIM/eSIM active.
  • Charged with Apple’s 20W USB-C brick and Lightning to USB-C cable, with optimized battery charging off.
  • Charging times were 23 minutes to 47%, 49 minutes to 81%, and 85 minutes (1 hour, 25 minutes) to 100%.
  • It charges quickly to 50%, slows down until 80%, and the last 20% charge the slowest.
  • Overall, it takes about 1.5 hours to fully charge from 0%.
