AirPower, el nuevo cargador inalámbrico de Apple con el que podrás cargarlo todo
The new iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus came with major battery changes. For the first time, wireless charging was enabled on an iPhone. Apple has joined the Qi standard for charging its mobile devices by induction. But in addition to this, Apple has incorporated the quick charge , through which we can charge part of the battery in less time if we are in a hurry.
Fast charging on iPhone X and iPhone 8 works in a very similar way to all other Android devices that already support it. During the first thirty minutes the iPhone will be able to charge up to 50% of its battery . This is especially useful when the battery has run out and you forget to put the device in charge.
However, there is a remarkable “but” in this, and it has to do with one of Apple’s most important dramas, its adapters. Fast charging of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus does not work with the normal charger, a USB-C adapter is required. What does this mean? It means that you will need to purchase a USB-C to Lightning cable. This cable is currently only manufactured by Apple, and costs 29 euros. With this cable connected to the computer (in a USB-C port) we could already charge the iPhone with a quick charge.
But of course, we usually charge the iPhone in a socket and not in the computer, so we should buy a USB-C charger . These come with the new MacBook and MacBook Pro, so unless you have one, you should buy one of the three available: the 29W for 59 euros, the 61W for 79 euros or the 87W for 89 euros. iPhone requires approximately 18W for fast charging, so the 29W would be more than enough.
So, to enjoy fast charging on the new iPhone we will easily have to pay an extra 88 euros . Another possible option is to use third party chargers, but the USB-C to Lightning cable will have to be bought yes or no from Apple. Possibly the AirPower, Apple’s wireless charging base will arrive with a quick charge, although nothing has been confirmed so far.
