No iPhone will charge at 2.1A.I've read some reviews/comments on these that say even the ones that say 2.1 don't charge at that rate because the phone sees it as USB instead of AC and doesn't draw enough. How can you tell if the phone is charging at USB or AC? I picked up a Belkin 2.1 but found a Staples that has the Scosche revolt in stock and I'm going to pick it up after work. Is there an easy way to see what rate the phone is charging at?
Ok, I guess I'm confused then. Is the 1a what you get from the wall charger and 500 from the usb port on the computer? Some of the comments I read said that with some chargers, the phone did not recognize it as ac and would charge at the usb rate and if you were running the gps, the charger could not keep up and the battery would be drained. On Amazon there were instructions on how to short something together inside the charger to make it think it was ac and not usb.No iPhone will charge at 2.1A.
That's for the iPad only.
The max that an iPhone will draw is 1A.
1A on high, 500mA on low.
Yep.Is the 1a what you get from the wall charger and 500 from the usb port on the computer? Some of the comments I read said that with some chargers, the phone did not recognize it as ac and would charge at the usb rate......
I bought a rayovac car adapter and wall plug combo at Walmart for roughly $12. Both works with the lightning cable.I need something that will work in my car with the lightning to USB cable. I found an old USB car charger and it won't work with the lightning cable. Anyone know of one that will?
Can't say I've sat with a watch and compared but to give you an idea, my battery was at 54% 40 minutes ago and it's now at 83%, all while streaming Pandora to my car via Bluetooth. Seems pretty snappy to me.Does it seem to charge at the same rate as the wall option?
