    Was wondering what your experience has been with fast charging.

    The last time I was using fast charging my iPad Pro 10.5 (2 different iPads), both went from 100% to approx 80% in less than a year in barely 200 cycles or so.

    So I’m wondering what your experience has been like.

    Can you specify the below details?

    Device:

    Time of purchase:

    Number of battery cycles:

    Battery health*:

    Do you do fast charging? Y or N

    * Could be from Coconut Battery or even Battery Health etc. I’ve found all these software to be consistent with Coconut Battery regardless of what most people here say. :)

    Example:

    Device: iPhone X

    Time of Purchase: April 2018

    Number of cycles: 25ish

    Battery Health: 100%

    Fast Charging: Not tried for this iPhone X yet.

    Yes on my iPhone X. Don't care about battery stats/health as I'll upgrade again in September.

    Hope that helps.

    This is normal. Fast charging does wear out the battery faster than normal.

    It does not if you charge it in normal room temperature. If you leave your phone in the sun/heat it will is destroy your battery a lot quicker than using fast charging.

    Nope I mostly use my wireless charger. Matter a fact my iPhone X box still has everything in it brand new minus the actual phone. I do use my belkin lightning cord in the car every once in awhile.

    Nope. They’re all 10W now I think. Mine is 10W as well and I charge my phone with that when I’m travelling or I have a multi charge usb hub type thing that I use at home alongside wireless chargers.

    How come they’re all 12W in India?

    Don’t they sell 12W adapters in USA?

    I don’t use a USB-C charger but my iPhone 8 charges faster with a higher amperage charger anyway, than my old SE did.

    If I ever get a new MacBook I will use that charger I expect.

    I’m guessing it’s based on average household voltage standards in different countries.

    Edit: https://www.apple.com/power-adapters/

    I always thought the 10W was completely phased out after the iPad 3, but apparently it stuck around a little longer! It does however look like the 10W charger has now been almost completely phased out (no new products being sold with it besides mini 4, and not sold separately)

    The 10W charger was the standard until it could not charge the iPad 3 while in use, so when the iPad 4 was announced they released it with a 12W charger. Looks like because the Air line used less power while in use and they briefly brought it back, and have stuck with the 10W for the Mini's.

    So your charging wirelessly? If so the max that can push out is 7.5W, which isn't really "fast charging". It shouldn't be anywhere near as bad for the battery as the 29W outlet plug.

    I bought my 8+ on April 8th. Sometimes I use my Samsung Fast Charger but mostly I just plug it in to either my MBP or plugged into a iPad Pro charger.

    Battery has 21 cycles and is 100% capacity.

    I received the 10W charger with my 5th gen iPad last year. So it’s not just the mini line. I wonder if they’re packing the same for the Pro models as well.

    The iPad (2018) is bundled with a 10W or 12W charger based on chance. Just like the iPad (2017) and iPads before that.

    Apple continues to dual-source from Flextronics (12W) and Foxlink (10W).

    Ah thank you for clearing that up. I could’ve sworn my dad got a 12w with his 2017!

    I just got an iPad Mini 4 a few days ago and was surprised to find a 12W in the box, as a friend’s iPad Mini 4 that she got about a year ago came with the 10W and that was what I had expected. Happy to have the 12W! I had been intending to use a 12W with the device anyway, since I have an extra one.

    To get on topic, I tend not to use fast charging with any of my devices, but occasionallly will use an iPad charger with my iPhone X. Battery health is still 100%, peak performance level.
