iPhone 8 fast charging tested

Tests by software engineer Dan Loewenherz have shown how long the iPhone 8 takes to charge using various Apple adapters.

One of the features punted by Apple during the launch of the iPhone 8 was its fast-charging capabilities.

It was soon discovered that the standard charging cable included with the iPhone 8 did not support fast charging – and users were required to purchase a USB-C-to-Lightning cable and a USB-C Power Adapter.

The tests looked at how long it took to get an iPhone 8 from flat to 50% battery level using different adapters.

  • The 12W iPad adapter took 37 minutes to reach 50%.
  • The 29W adapter took 33 minutes to reach 50%.
  • The 61W adapter took 29 minutes to reach 50%.

An 87W adapter provided almost exactly the same performance as the 61W adapter.
