    Pointless.

    I picked this up with an Apple USB-C to Lightning cable to fast charge my iPad Pro 12.9. It doesn’t work. It charges at the same rate as the included 12W adapter. From what I have gathered looking at the support forums, fast charging just doesn’t work sometimes. So basically, you’re shelling out 70 bucks for a chance that this might fast charge your device. Save your money and just use the charger that comes with your iPad.

    Fast Charge iPhone X (and iPad Pro 10.5) - AMAZING | EXPENSIVE

    Advantages:
    - Charges UNBELIEVABLY FAST, from 0-80% (about 1hr-1hr10)
    - Uses USB-Type C.
    - Works on iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as well as iPad Pro devices

    Disadvantages:
    - Price is ridiculous. Should be included like every other (cheaper) Android phones. (I’ve spent an extra £159 on AirPods and now a total of £74 to make use of the Fast Charging feature. (£1232 - iPhone X 64GB total | £1382 iPhone X 256GB total)
    - Quite a heavy head and large
    - USB-C to Lightning cable not included.

    I just ate the bullet and got it, it’s expensive, but fast charging is AWESOME! It’s so instant and amazing! Should of come in the box as with AirPods, but it’s a purchase that will last!

    You can also get cheaper 3rd party Head chargers that are 29W+ and will work, just make sure you have the official Apple USB-C to lightning cable. It’s a must have, don’t go to eBay or Amazon, it’s your battery at risk here.

    Too expensive to not be included with iPad Pro

    Great product quality however the price is absurd, especially since it wasn’t included with my iPad Pro, I primarily stick to apple products but this is a hard sell on apples part, $59 for a brick, then you have to buy the cord. I used to choose apple accessories specifically because of the warranty, however these days most competing accessory companies are very good with customer service making pass on buying this a second time

    Jaw-droppingly Terrible Quality and Design!

    The only two redeeming attributes of Apple's MacBook's old charging and cord management system have, naturally, been removed from this latest charging iteration by the design geniuses at Apple. No longer does a magnet snap your connection into place, and no longer can you wrap an unsightly cord around the flip-up handles on the back of the adapter.

    Instead, I get a connection that's often not even charging my computer until I press in the (seemingly connected) USB-C cable harder, and wait for a tone from the computer to indicate it's charging (if I move my computer I'll likely have to push it back in again).

    And don't look for any redemption on quality. These are the same borderline negligent materials they've always used...the kind that fray like that's its core competency. Such a disgrace to an otherwise great product line.

    No cable included, no cord management, terrible design

    Where to begin? Apple isn't even trying anymore. Just goes to show the lack of care of effort Apple shows its loyal customer base. Zero stars is too much.

    Garbage!

    I purchased a brand new iPhone 8 in September 2017 and I purchased the 29 watt USB C power adapter a month later for fastest charging possible. I took it with me on vacation in January 2018 and it just stopped working. It would not charge my brand new iPhone 8. Thank goodness I had a reliable 12 watt power adapter with me or I would not have been able to take pictures on vacation. Don’t waste your money on the 29 watt USB C power adapter. I could not believe it just stopped working after 3 months.

    iPad charging scam...

    This should have been included in the box along with the overpriced cable. It took 5 hours to charge the iPad Pro with the included charger, and you cannot just use another usb charger with more power because Apple made sure to make the device with special hardware in case you tried to save money by buying a 3rd party's reasonably priced wall adapter.

    What else has apple done with their usb c macbooks and endless cables and connectors? Also, the company admits they deliberately slow down products using old hardware. Nothing but greed here folks.

    USB C 29W

    For the first time using Power Adapter USB C the best fastest charging ever it only takes you like 30 minuets that’s what the Apple Crew said me. Even the Lightning Cable (1M) the best as well better then 5W USB power adapter. You don’t like 5W powerful adapter better of getting 29W power adapter charging time will only take 30 minuets.

    Faster charging

    Yes, it's expensive but used in conjunction with the USB-C to Lightning Cable it charges the iPad Pro like there's no tomorrow. I really can't be waiting about for over five hours for a full charge. Enjoy the efficiency of supercharging.

    Love it!

    I've had this thing for probably two years - got it as a gift - and I'm always impressed at how fast it charges, ESPECIALLY compared to any other charger. I'm buying extras to have everywhere because... why not?

    Great for iPad Pro 12.9

    I have both iPhone X as well as iPad Pro 12.9.

    If u have iPad Pro wall charger 12 w. It’s not worth to buy for iPhone X. Because 0 to 100 its only 15 mins difference. But from 0 to 50% 29w charges really quickly. 52% in just 30 mins. With 12w it’s 36% in 30 mins. But after 70% both wall charger slows down to get 100%.

    With 29w total time taken is 1:30 mins, with 12w total time taken is 1:45 mins. And normal 5w takes much longer more than 3 hrs.

    But for iPad Pro 12.9 it charges 0 to 100% it takes 2 hrs 15 mins for 29w. And 0 to 100% for 12w it takes 5.5 hrs.

    Many are not happy with Apple because, when they are selling premium phones like iPhone X, they should have included either 29w or 12w.
    5w Charger are for older generation phones.

    I throw the 5w charger to bin. It’s completely waste.

    Either put 12w or 29w. Or plz don’t include 5w in the box just for the sake.

    29W USB-C Power Adapter

    It’s b••ody expensive item, but it’s very useful.
    Adapter charges so quick. From 0% to 50% in Flight Mode less than 30mins
    4/5 stars because it’s sold separately USB-C cable, expensive and very big size. The rest about - just perfect. Personal opinion.

    Charges no faster for iPhone X (12W=29w)

    I recently brought an iPhone X (which comes with a 5w charger). Having seen this 29W Charger, I thought I would go all out and treat myself knowing that sometimes the cost of these things (paid £85 with 2m cable) can't beat that need to get your IPhone charged asap for a night out. Having had the Charger and the Phone 2 weeks now and done some test with my 12w charger I've already got, I have discovered that the 12w and 29w charger, charge in exactly the same time!!!!! In 2 hours!. Having spoke to Apple Chat,, they could not give me a reasonable explanation for this (their website say that both adapters are compatible with the iPhone X) and suggested returning to the Apple Store for a refund which is what I shall do.

    Absolutely awesome!!!

    Just bought this adapter and was well worth the price. Testing out the fast charge capabilities for taking advantage of the USB -C compatibility with IPad Pro 12.9 and iPhone 8+. Starting from 50% charge on iPad Pro running FULL BRIGHTNESS / WIFI AND BLUETOOTH connected to my HK ONYX STUDIO 3 speaker / playing Vainglory for 15mins and rest video play it took 1hr and 15mins to reach 95% charge. Constantly increasing charge without a sign of loss of power. Need I say more. Well worth the price vs my 12W adapter that came with iPad. Strongly suggest purchasing it. Just texted iPhone 8+ running FULL BRIGHTNESS and video playback from 44% to 94% in 1hr 10mins. May not seem like much but when you’re having to wait long periods of time to charge your device with factory adapters, it’s a drastic change.

    From 0 to 50% in 28 mins. Works better than expected

    Hello. I bought this one and the USB c - lighting cable. I made the test from 0% battery.
    So you should get similar results wit this combination: charger 29W + cable USB c + iPhone X 256GB:
    50% at 28mins (fast charge)
    80% at 49mins (fast charge)
    100% at 110mins (normal charge)

    Rip-off!

    Having just spent £1000 on an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, you would expect this item to ship with the appropriate charger for the product and not the diabolical take all night to charge item they did send. I once used to tell people how great Apple was. Their products are great, I can’t deny that... but now they’re becoming more and more greedy. Be warned Apple... there are other manufacturers out there and they’re catching up fast. Your current customers will only remain loyal for so long.

    won't work for MacBook Pro anymore

    I was using 29W adapter for my MacBook Pro 13" since first day. It charges a little bit slow than the original one but the size is small and easy to carry on.

    One day in Oct 17 I found it stop working with my Mackbook pro 13". It works fine for other devices like Nintendo switch or iPhone but will not charge my MacBook Pro any more. I believe apple has update something to block it charging. Really sad for that.

    Works great with iPhone 8+

    Not much to say really, but it works great with my new iPhone 8+. Noticeably faster than the included charger that came with the phone. I bought the official Apple 2 meter USB C to Lightening cable and it works fine.

    Method in the Madness

    Bought this because I needed a fast charger for my iPad Pro. The supplied charger was taking far too long to complete a full charge.

    It’s very expensive for a charger and is made worse by the fact a USB-C-Lightning cable is also required. This will cost about 80 GBP in total!!

    Forget independent units .They either don’t work properly, have to be Apple MFI certified (meaning they cost almost as much as the manufacturer has to pay Apple a licence fee) or they’re dangerous fakes. If you own an iPad you’ll pretty much have to stick to Apple for things like chargers etc.

    But the unit is very high quality, nice in appearance and will charge my iPad fully in under 3 hrs-a fraction of the time it takes for the standard charger.

    Fast chargers will lessen the lifespan of a battery so this is probably the practical reason they are optional extras. This will also work with all current iPhones without a problem.

    An expensive but a high quality, practical solution for fast charging.

    Great compact charger the size of the iPad charger

    I bought this as a second charger for my MacBook Pro. Great to have a small compact charger to carry on the road. Only reason for giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I didn't realise the USB C cable didn't ship with it. Seems a bit silly. Also I don't like with the new charges that they don't have the prongs to wrap up the cable neatly like the old magsafe chargers did.
