Charge 50% in 30 Minutes
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus support fast charging. With the right cable and the right charger you can get 50% of your battery life in about 30 minutes. This saved my iPhone battery life more times than I can count and it's an epic feature for power users.
You need an iPhone 8 Fast Charger, a USB C to Lightning Cable and 15 to 30 minutes. I often only get 15 minutes to charge my iPhone before I head out the door in the evening and that's enough to get from 50% to 75% battery life and get me through the day.
You'll need to buy the USB C to Lightning cable that Apple makes for this to work, but you don't need to buy a MacBook charger. All you need is a USB C charger with USB PD. Here are the best iPhone 8 Fast Chargers, a few of which are under $20. We're even seeing some new cars and trucks and USB C chargers that can fast charge your iPhone 8, like the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500.
