      Works as advertised

      I have the 29W version of this, and have never had any problems with it. Can generally charge my iPhone X from zero to 100 in about an hour. Maybe even less.

For times when you're in a real hurry this is the best option. Just wish it were a little more affordable when piecing it with the cable.

      WARNING! — incompatible with Mophie’s powerstation PD USB-C XXL...

      Bought this adapter and assorted cables and for my 12” iPadPro, as recommended by Apple for my trip, to go with Mophie’s super powerstation (above), but, sadly, Bought this adapter and assorted cables and for my 12” iPadPro, as recommended by Apple for my trip, to go with Mophie’s super powerstation (above), but, sadly, learned this month Mophie found it’s incompatible... It works wonderfully, though, with a USB-C to lightning cable to charge my iPadPro in triple time. How come I never knew about this before?! :) Just wish I could have one 30W adapter to do both. See review under the powerstation for full details and a tip... PS I see Apple has removed it from being listed under iPadPro’s accessories.

I guess the 29 got discontinued and wasnt pd compliant. Also bought usb c to lightning. Just under 80 for the two. Wow. The charge rate does seem to taper off after 80% Empirically ive seen this. Ive measured it with an app called Amperes. Using these on iphone 8 256 gig. And this charge rate is as good as it gets. Still takes over hr. Defective.. or by design. Idk. I definitely recommend the apple brand cables. But not sure if this brick is worth it. Time will tell.

      not worth it for XS MAX

      I went all Apple, $68 for the 30W USB-C charger and USB-C to lightning 1 meter cable. Purchased them from Apple directly. Best charging rate is 7.5W according I went all Apple, $68 for the 30W USB-C charger and USB-C to lightning 1 meter cable. Purchased them from Apple directly. Best charging rate is 7.5W according to free ap Amperes-Lite. So I purchased the 99 cent Amperes ap which offered more testing. Same results charging from 60, 70, 80 or 90%. One test came in at 3.5W but all the others at 7.5W or 1481 mA. I have an Anker 30,000mA hour charger that charges at 10W. The wireless charger I bought from Apple came in at just under 5W which is OK considering best possible is 7.5W. 7.5W is not acceptable for something that is supposed to be close to 30W. I cannot imagine it is defective since it does charge. But will look at the other reviews to see if I got a lemon.

      Finally!!! Fast-Charging is available on iOS devices.

      I have bought one of this 30W USB-C power adapter to try out when I gotten my iPhone X last year at launch. It has worked extremely well as I tends to only char I have bought one of this 30W USB-C power adapter to try out when I gotten my iPhone X last year at launch. It has worked extremely well as I tends to only charge my iOS devices only after it drops below 20% (old habits to keep battery lifecycle on a healthier lifecycle). That means there are occasions when I am preparing to leave the house in the mornings only to find my iPhone running pretty low on battery charge. A quick 15-30 mins fast-charge using this 30W USB-C power adapter while I am washing up and dressing up to leave, is enough to get me through most parts of my day. I cannot remember to exact battery charge level after 30 mins of fast-charging. I think it definitely passes the 50% mark, usually reaches around 75-80%. Oh, by the way, I have never had an occasions where the fast-charging heats up my iPhone X, despite having the Apple Leather case for iPhone X. And even fast-charging the iPad Pro 11" does not heat up at all. One thing I do notice. Once charging reaches around 95% or 98%, it takes a lot longer time to charge till 100%. Not sure if it is a safety mechanism or software bug. I have now gotten a second 30W USB-C Power Adapter for approximately 2-3 months. Intend to progressively phase out those 12W USB-A Power Adapters which I have quite a number of them (at home & in office, for quick charging than the 5W power adapter).
