After all these years, Apple finally decided to step up its charging game in 2017. The iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus all support wireless charging and fast charging. The only problem, of course, is that they don’t come with a wireless charger or a fast charger. We’ve recommended plenty of wireless chargers over the past couple weeks (this is our favorite premium wireless charger, and this is a great low-cost option) and now it’s time to cover fast charging. You can get a 29W wall adapter and a USB-C to Lightning cable from Apple for $74 total, or you can pick up a UGREEN USB Type-C 30W Wall Charger instead of the Apple adapter and you’ll pay about half that amount in total. Your call.
