      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.

      Bought the newer 30 w one. I guess the 29 got discontinued and wasnt pd compliant. Also bought usb c to lightning. Just under 80 for the two. Wow. The cha Bought the newer 30 w one. 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.

This charger stopped working after 2 weeks of limited use. I didn’t keep the receipt and packaging, so I cannot get an exchange or refund from the Apple dealer where I purchased it. Apple products are usually so reliable I tossed the packing after a week, without it ever occurring to me that the charger would die so soon.
