Finding an iPhone Mains Charger that Serves your Charging Needs

Owning an iPhone means investing in the right type of charger to avoiding damaging the charging system. Different generations of the iPhone use specific chargers, so a user has to be certain to get a compatible one. eBay makes it easy to find an iPhone main charger for your device thanks to the extensive selection of products available.

Which adapters can you use to fast charge your iPhone?

Fast charging allows you to charge your device up to 50% in 30 minutes. The charger times vary depending on the device and environment. You need the right type of cable and adapter to fast charge your iPhone. For an iPhone 8 or later model, use the USB-C to Lightning cable with an Apple 87W, 61W, 30W, 29W, and 18W USB-C adapter. Apple also recommends using any other adapter that is designed for USB Power Delivery (USB-PD). You can also confirm the wattage of an adapter on the bottom label.

How do you get a suitable mains charger for iPhone?

With the various charging options available on the market, picking one that satisfies your charging requirements can be tedious. Here are some tips to consider:

  • Wattage: The power rating the charger will influence how fast it charges the device. Of course, the power needs of a specific iPhone will factor in. For instance, the wattage you need for an iPhone 5 is not the same as for an iPhone X, so check the manufacturer site for details.
  • Compatibility: The model of the phone will determine the mains charger that you can use with it. Newer generations of iPhones have better compatibility with USB-PD adapters, meaning that users have a larger choice of products.
  • Certification: Always insist on original and genuine products when buying an iPhone mains charger to ensure that the device can draw power safely.
How do you tell if an Apple power adapter is genuine?

Avoid getting a mains charger for your iPhone if you are not sure if it is certified. If you are buying from a reseller, check the USB-IF certification. This program ensures that products adhere to various compliance standards that make them safe for use with Apple devices. A charger can also be labelled as ‘Made for iPhone.’ The certification can be found on the underside of the iPhone mains charge, which will tell if the product is genuine or not. Verifying the certification of an iPhone charger reduces the risks of purchasing an incompatible product.
