When it comes to iPhone 11, you might be wondering why it takes so long to charge. With the charger included, it takes more than 3 hours to fully charge. But this phone supports Fast Charging feature. Fast Charging lets you recharge your iPhone 11 battery up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes and up to about 80% in 1 hour.
The problem is not with the iPhone 11, but due to the fact that Apple provides a weak charger.
Apple has included the ability to quickly charge phones starting with the iPhone 8. There are no special settings to activate, you just need the appropriate charger and cable.
Quick charge iPhone 11
Perhaps, to reduce costs, the iPhone 11 only comes with a weak 5W charger and a Lightning-to-USB cable. However, Apple does offer 18W USB-C fast chargers and supports USB-C-to-Lightning cables with iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max models.
The included charging setup is suitable for charging iPhone 11 overnight. But if you need to be able to continue using your phone quickly until the end of the day, you'll want fast charging.
Select charger and cable
Now, when it comes to fast charging iPhone 11, you need the right accessories. You need a USB-C 18W fast charger as well as a USB-C-to-Lightning cable.
Of course, Apple will sell you both a charger and a cable separately (prices are around $ 50 / VND 1,150,000 for both products). You can buy them directly from Apple or genuine Apple accessory suppliers on Amazon. The 18W charger costs about $ 30 (VND 690,000) and the USB-C-to-Lightning cable costs about $ 19 (460,000 VND).
Or, you can buy third-party chargers and cables on Amazon for a slightly lower price. For example, you can buy the Aukey 18W PD quick charger and Aukey USB-C to Lightning cable for under $ 30 (VND 690,000).
The main reason to buy Apple's official chargers and cables is for peace of mind. And if you've just bought an iPhone 11, the $ 50 might be worth it.
If you have an old iPhone and have never tried fast charging or need a replacement charger, you can save a few dollars by going to third-party alternatives.
