Been using 29w power adapter on my 6s Plus and 7 Plus for two years. Works great and Lirum app report 96% capacity after one year of charging with it.

Below about 75% charge level I see a one percent increase per minute. So 15 minutes gets me 15% increase. As far as I’m concerned it’s only way to go. Just be sure it is real Apple 29w powered adapter and Apple USB-C to Lightening cable.

Don’t use any other non Apple power adapter or cable. It DOES make a difference. There are articles of people tearing them apart and high percentage of after market products including cheap gas station cables are pure junk. Don’t risk a $1,000 iPhone, fire or electrocution to save $20 bucks.

The charger circuit built into the iPhone will reduce demand for current from any power adapter as it goes above 75 to 80%. This protects the battery life. As it approaches high 90s to 100% it is only trickle charging. This is why you can leave the power attached for long periods of time with no harm to battery. The built in charger cycles on and off at 100% preventing any damage.

Someone posted a nice graph showing charge curves for all the power adapters. I leave it to you to do search to find it. After 80% it does not much matter the wattage of the power adapter. The speed benefit happens from 0% to 80%. That will take about hour and fifteen minutes. The last 20% takes about another 30-40 minutes.

Because I can get one percent per minute I find a quick 15 to 20 minutes after I get home and change to go out is all I need. It’s also very convenient at airport between flights as I can get quick boosts in very short time between flights. Or at office plug it in during coffee brake and wham, fifteen percent added.

Did you go find the chart I mentioned? It’s not a linear straight line. It starts out steep and levels off becoming flat at end of charge.

If you charge a lot below 40% you get better than one to one ratio. At low battery levels you get like 3% every two minutes. If you charge a lot from 80% on higher, not much benefit. Only time I charge to 100% is normally overnight. Doesn’t make any difference to me if it takes one hour or five hours. In morning it is at 100%.

I can’t see most people charging from zero to 100% repeatedly during day when using the phone. The benefit comes when you drop to 10% and need a quick boost. I have an inverter in car so I use the 29w power adapter when driving to next stop. And am back t0 50% in 20 minutes. I don’t even think to plug in when at 70% or higher as in that range the built in charger is already cutting back the current and slow charging.

The power adapters by the way are NOT chargers as commonly called. They are transformers changing 110-220V AC to 5V DC. The charger is inside the iPhone.

1st - You are welcome
3rd - Original power adapter takes much longer.
3rd = then why you not explain how long for original and 29w
hou just explain around and around

Because it is not as simple as you think it is. Once again, and read it slowly. If you charge a lot when battery is low percentage the larger power adapter will be much faster.

All the power adapters regardless of size will slow down once the phone gets above about 75%. Above that their is no speed increase because the built in charger of the iPhone reduces amount of current to protect the battery.

That not bad at all...

so first 30 minutes will bring 75% and then 25 minute will bring 1% each minute = 60 minutes estimate total comparing 1 1/2 hr original one

is this what you explain in real english ???

:)

No above 75% no size of power adapter will give you 1% per minute. As I have repeatedly told you in real English the charging circuit in the phone reduces the current draw above 75% getting less and less as you approach 100% to protect the battery life.
