i purchased a 29w charger from Anker. I wanted to check to see if it does actually fast charge the phone. I used the amperes app and it gives a score. The score was 2700. Does anyone know if that’s fast charging? It was significantly better than using the standard adapter which gave a score of 1350.

It should double ding which would tell you fast charging is activated.

Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. I used to have an apple 29w power brick until I sold my MacBook. That’s was the same, sometimes it double dinged and sometimes it didn’t

The 29W power brick doesn’t provide enough value in my opinion. A 12W iPad charging block charges plenty fast to be of good use every day.
