How to Make the Most of Your iPhone's Rapid Charge

One of the main novelties of the iPhone 8 with regard to its predecessor is precisely the fast charge , which makes it possible that at last we are not glued to the plug and if we have a short time, we can feed our device as much as possible. And of course, when in less than a month the iPhone X reaches stores (or hopefully), you can also load it quickly.

Even wirelessly, however, the wireless charger is not included in the box of these terminals , so if you want to do so, you'll have to buy it separately. Both the iPhone X and iPhone 8 have a Qi wireless charge, so you'll have to find compatible chargers for both devices .

But what we are interested in today is the rapid charge through our old lifelong charger, the cable. And is that although the traditional charger that comes in the box has 5W, if you choose well, both the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X will be charged much faster with other chargers, whether original or Mfi .

To make you see the difference between them, software engineer Dan Loewenherz has done a study to evaluate the speed of loading . To do this, he used an iPhone 8 Plus that was at 0% until loaded to the maximum with several chargers of 5W, 10W, 12W, 29W, 61W and 87W. It is not necessary to be an engineer to intuit what the trend will be, but it is quite surprising to see it in a graph:

As you can see, the jump from 5 to 10 Watts is brutal , an hour apart is what goes from one to another, so if you buy a 10W charger you will greatly appreciate it. For example, the iPad charger has that voltage. If you buy a 12W, you'll reach 50% a few minutes faster than the 10W, although it's something bigger and more expensive (about $ 20 on the Apple website).

And then, as we increase the Watts, the difference is not so bestial. On the other hand, if we go to 87W, you would spend a buck, about 79 dollars according to BGR reports from the Apple website, perhaps too much to make it worth judging by the graph.
