    I’ve been away from iPhones for a couple of years and just got the XS. I’m coming from a OnePlus 3 so I’m used to the blazing fast Dash Charger getting my phone from 20% to 100% in an hour.

    I have a 12w iPad brick that’s getting me better speeds but what else could I get? I know the USB C options are expensive. Would I see an improvement if I got say a 24w Anker charger and still used lightning or does lighting stop improving at wattage above the iPad charger?

    Apple USB-C to Lightning cable, plus a USB-C charger than has PD (Power Delivery). Anker is a good 3rd party brand.

    You can't get fast charge without USB-C end, and Apple is the only one currently making that cable. It's worth it.

    You get the most back for your buck with the iPad 12W chargers.

    With the 5W charger in 30 minutes it gets you to around the 20% charged mark.
    With the 12W iPad charger in 30 minutes it gets you to around the 40% charged mark.
    With the 18W+ USB-C based charger in 30 minutes it gets you to around the 50% charged mark.

    5W - charger and cable free - comes with phone
    12W - charger $20 range - cable free comes with phone
    18W+ - $30-50 for the charger + $20-30 for the cable - both depending on if you go Apple brand or other and wattage.
