    Fast charging is great, price not so much.

    • Written by Rob P from Coventry

    The fast charging for the iPhone Xs Max is fantastic, but given that this product did not come with the phone and it still requires an additional (expensive) component to function and charge the iPhone I find that the price is just again Apple taking the proverbial and being pretty out of touch with the majority of its users. The plug itself should come included with all premium versions of their iPhones (X, Xs, Xs Max) and also a USB-C to Lighting cable should also be included in the box for these devices. I feel that the cheaper (I can't help at laugh at the irony of this word here) iPhones should include the smaller 5W folding charger as these folding chargers are fantastic for storing in your pocket.

    Unreliable

    Sometimes completely fails to charge either my iPad Pro or phone. I was badly let down by this on a recent business trip. Apple don't regard this as a fault and won't replace the item. No such problems with other chargers.

    Faster charging for iPhone 8 upwards

    • Written by Alan S from ST ALBANS

    I can recommend this power adapter as a much faster charging alternative as compared with the standard 5W power adaptor.
    An iPhone battery will perform better (i.e. retain its charge) for longer over its lifetime if you keep it charged between 40 and 80% rather than repeatedly charging to 100% every time and this power adapter makes it very convenient to quick charge as required.
    It is compatible with iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max at time of reviewing.
    A smart feature is the folding pins as although the unit is almost twice as deep as the standard power adaptor, being able to fold the pins in with one touch results in a neat package for storage purposes.
    As it is not supplied with a cable, it is essential that you purchase a USB-C to Lightning cable for direct use with iPhone.
    Alternatively, this unit can be used to connect to some wireless charger pads but you would naturally need to check the required input wattage range of the particular wireless charger, presuming that it needs an external power adapter as some only accept up to 10 watts.

    IPhone fast charge A*

    • Written by Chris I from Littlehampton

    Great charger to get maximum fast charge rate into an iPhone XS Max, and not too badly priced (same price as 5w folding plug for Apple Watch)

    Shame the usb-c to lightening cable is so pricey, and that both this folding plug and the required cable were not bundled in with iPhone XS max

    Solid

    • Written by Alex J from Chalfont St Giles

    Not too big but not too small you can't pull it out of the wall like the 5 watt one. Charges fast. Mechanism of folding pins is very good. Would be 5 stars if the price was lower like £19.99 or even better in the box with the iPhone.
