      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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.
