Apple’s latest accessory – a R400 USB-C fast charger

Apple has added a $29 (R400), 18-watt USB-C power adapter to the Apple Store that can be used to fast charge your iPad or iPhone.

The new charging device serves as an alternative to the more expensive 30-watt USB-C charger that is usually shipped with MacBooks.

Apple recommends the charger is paired with either the 11-inch iPad Pro or the 12.9-inch 3rd generation iPad Pro, for optimal performance.

However, if you want to use the new power adapter to fast charge your iPhone, you will need to purchase Apple’s official USB-C to Lightning cable for another $19 (R250).

iPhones have supported fast charging since the iPhone 8 range, but do not come packaged with a fast charger.

This new charger will allow owners of these phones to join the owners of most high-end Android phones in having access to this functionality.
