    not worth it for XS MAX

    • Written by Richard W from Wading River

    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.

    Weak

    If you plan on buying this as a speed charger for your iPhone 8+ /X / 7+/ iPad pro 10" it's an easy pass. Takes quite a bit longer then an hour to fully charge your phone/ipad. For $50 and then a 2 meter long cable for another $30 it's way to expensive for what it is. Extremely over priced and a super let down. I have a Samsung adaptive speed charger that I use for my iPhone 8+ (becuase of how bummed I've been on Apple lately) and it works better. Seems as though Samsung is beginning to make a come back while Apple is just trading on its name. Apple please start making better products for the price you are charging. Very mediocre.
