In the latest models of its smartphones, the company Apple used fast charging technologies. Owners of iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 and iPhone X will have to incur additional costs to apply.
The supplied devices do not support this function. They only provide a charge at 1A, while for fast battery recharge support 2.1A is required. This means that the accessory for smartphones will have to be purchased separately. So how much will fast charging cost for iPhone 8 and other new devices?
How to use the fast charge function for iPhone
Those who want to quickly charge their iPhone will have to go for financial expenses. They need to buy a cable that has a Lightning connector on one side and a USB-C connector on the other. The cost of such an adapter with a length of 1 m is slightly more than 2,500 rubles. For a cable 2 meters long, you will have to pay even more – about 3 thousand rubles.
If you own the latest Pro laptop from the same manufacturer, you don't have to purchase anything else – you can use the PSU from MacBook. Otherwise, you will have to buy this accessory too.

The price of power supplies depends on the power of the devices. The simplest model, designed for 29 W, costs a little more than 3,500 rubles. The price of a 69 W adapter exceeds 5,500 rubles. Buying the most powerful (87 W) device will cost you 6,000 rubles.
Thus, the total cost of adapters for fast charging for smartphones together with cables will be at least 6,000 and maximum 9,000 rubles. By connecting your smartphone to the network using these devices, you will be able to recharge its battery by 50% in just half an hour.
After that, the process slows down a little: this is necessary so as not to harm the batteries of the device. The controller built into the battery iPhone detects the rise in temperature and automatically reduces the voltage and current. Over the next half hour, the charge increases by only about 30%.
When the battery reaches 80%, the speed is further reduced. This is due to the fact that further charging up to 100% is carried out at the minimum values of current and voltage. By lowering them, the controller thereby extends the battery life.
Several other factors can affect the charging speed of your smartphone. First of all, these include the active display: if you watch a video, chat with friends in messengers or read a book on your phone, the battery will charge more slowly. Resource-intensive games will have an even greater impact on speed.
How fast it charges iPhone is also affected by background processes. For example, if you are driving a car in a rural area where the network is unstable and the signal is often lost, it will take more than 30 minutes to replenish the battery to 50%.
