    Only 12% faster than 12W w/Lightning to USB A

    Sure I like the quick 30min boost as the A11 chip phones (and A10X iPad Pro 2nd Gen) can take advantage of a PD (Power Delivery Profile) of 14.5V/2A=29W other devices don't have and charge 50% in about 30min if not more. Problem is even outside any case, you can FEEL the heat and heat is the biggest enemy of battery life. Meanwhile I discovered it only is 12% faster than getting a $19 12W iPad charging block which I agree, is what SHOULD be included in these "phablet" sized phones like the iPhone 8 Plus I use this block for. Unfortunately I fell for the hype after already owning (2) 12W blocks for my iPhone 6 Plus and had sprung for the nice 2m Lightining to USB A cord vs. the 1m 3.3ft ones that never reach your nightstand that come with your iPhone. Save you money unless you want to have it as a backup for a Thunderbolt 3 Macbook Pro 2016-2018 (or borrow from your 2018 Mac Book Air). You'll have to shut down your MBP laptop to charge up a normally 61W or 87W laptop, but even the Anker PD and other 20,000mah juice packs only deliver 22W-45W PD and are safe to use, but same issue. They are not going to RUN a 15" MBP CPU with a 45W TDP, but you might sneak by with a 13"MBP 15W TDP. Just remember a 15" 2016-2018 MBP has a dedicated GPU that can kick in and use 35W by itself, so PD of 30W is useful, but more so as back up if your USB C 61W or 87W USB C block goes MIA. Least you can quick charge your iPhone 8/8+ or iPhone 10 and have a back up USB C laptop charger to mostly shut down a laptop and recharge the battery and use on battery until you find your 61W or 87W or get a new one? Otherwise save you money and treat yourself to a nice 6.6Ft (2m) Lightning to USB A cord and a 12W USB A $19 iPad brick and only loose 12% charging speed and also reduce the HEAT your phone battery will endure. It might actually make your battery last LONGER over the long run. Plus once at 80% the larger 29W block throttles back the PD profile anyway and you'll notice that last 20% takes significantly longer anyway. So spend $50 for a 29W block and $25 on a new 2m 6.6ft Lightning to USB C cord or spend $19 on a 12W iPad block and $25 on a 2m 6.6ft Lightning to USB A cable and save yourself $30 all over 12%. Like I said, only if you want a back up USB C laptop charger in a pinch, would I make that choice.

    I bought this to use with my 10.5" iPad pro and iPhone 7+. I bought a USB-C to Lightning cable and plugged them both up. There is a definite increase in charging speeds on both devices, but the price you pay for that speed is a bit out of control. If I didn't need the quick charger, I might pass on this for perhaps another, cheaper option. I just have this thing with genuine Apple accessories since ive never had a problem with them. I gave it three stars because of the price.

    Not seeing a tremendous amount of difference in the charge speed. Just put the phone in airplane mode for faster charge. If you have the extra money pick it up. If not pass

    Typical Apple product. Does what it's supposed to and nothing more. My first Apple phone was a iPhone 10 and it just reminded me why I love Android so much LOL

    I bought this to fast charge my 12.9" iPad Pro. I got it on open box so I saved a little bit of cash. Works as expected, charges my iPad much faster than the cable included.

    Only giving 3 stars based on the fact that I purchased it for my iPad Pro. Expensive for something that has to be purchased separately to support fast charging.

    its a shame that Apple charges such a premium for all of its accessories. Not compatible with previous MacBook Air/Pro chargers.

    I don’t understand why this adapter costs so much. It’s plastic and small pieces of metal. It works but is way too expensive!

    This is the missing ingredient to the iPhone X. It’s what unlocks the door to fast charging. But itlll cost you

    Not much choice except paying premium for this original Apple accessory as a second power block for my MacBook.
