    Can a quick charger be used as your standard everyday charger that you use to charge your phone overnight or should it only be used to quick charge your device?

    I believe these chargers communicate with device and self adjust. iOS has not enabled fast charging yet, stay tuned.

    fast charging does work

    It's wireless fast charging thats not been enabled yet

    to OP though I only use fast charging during the day. When I go to bed i always use one of my wireless chargers now.

    Well I use the fast charge when I need fast charge. I have a wireless charging stand in the bedroom and the mophie wirless charging pad in the lounge

    Quick Charge is Qualcom? Samsung? trademark term. So what are you asking.

    If the charger says QuickChage 2.0 or 3.0, it probably won't work optimally, or only at standard 5W rate.

    If 5W is standard.

    You can get faster charge with a Apple iPad 10W or 12W adapter and others on the market that deliver the same level of power and a normal USB A to lightning.

    You can get EVEN faster charger with the MacBook 29W and USBC to Lighting cable.

    The fast you charge, the more wear you cause to the battery. So consider that...

    Nah don't really buy that. I don't think thats true at all. Fast charge doesn't damage your battery on past experience. It's been a fine feature on android for years and there has never been an issue. Fast charge is great for when you need it say when you get home and need to head out on the town or if at work and you need a boost to last you through bed. If you are at home all day you might as well use wireless charging. As it's a feature thats good to have.

    I see the responses of damaged batteries from fast charging or degrading battery life, but I would safely bet that 90% of posters also switch out their phones often enough (I personally change every year) that they would have sold, exchanged, returned, their current phone for a new one

    As I said I have never had any issues and not known of any issues from anybody that it hurts the battery. This might apply if you keep your device for a long period of time but for those who upgrade every year or two years will never be na issue.

    You use your device how you wish. Not something that people should worry about.

    Well I charge my iPhone X using the iPad charger which is 10w I believe? Phone charges under 2:30 hours which is quite good compared to the 5w which takes over 3 hours. Haven't heard much about degrading the battery life tho? Would that be an issue?

    Sorry, I should have been more clear in my post.

    I am referring to using the Apple 29W Charger with a USB-C to Lightning cable

    That's what I use as my main charger during the day, since I use a 12" Macbook for work, works fast and quick, no complaints. When I get home, I just top off on the regular 5w block overnight

    I have had the quick charging set up since I got the gen 1 iPad Pro 12.9.

    Apple really should have added an icon to let you know that quick charge was working.
    It seems to work but don't expect it to blow your mind. I think after a certain percentage, it slows to normal speeds.
