Tests by software engineer Dan Loewenherz have shown how long the iPhone 8 takes to charge using various Apple adapters.
One of the features punted by Apple during the launch of the iPhone 8 was its fast-charging capabilities.
It was soon discovered that the standard charging cable included with the iPhone 8 did not support fast charging – and users were required to purchase a USB-C-to-Lightning cable and a USB-C Power Adapter.
The tests looked at how long it took to get an iPhone 8 from flat to 50% battery level using different adapters.
- The 12W iPad adapter took 37 minutes to reach 50%.
- The 29W adapter took 33 minutes to reach 50%.
- The 61W adapter took 29 minutes to reach 50%.
An 87W adapter provided almost exactly the same performance as the 61W adapter.
Fully cleaned up! Clearer color for 5W, ordered labels by wattage, added vertical lines, fixed axis labels, and using mins vs hours. 😛 pic.twitter.com/avHE4DpOFd
