Did you just pick up a new iPhone X today? Have you bought a new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus over the past month? Well guess what: your new phone finally supports fast charging! Oh, but it doesn’t actually, you know, work. At least not out of the box. If you want to charge your new iPhone as fast as possible, there are two things you’ll need and neither one of them actually comes with the phone.

First, you’ll need a USB-C to Lightning cable since true fast charging only works over USB-C. Check out the Metrans USB-C to Lightning Cable, a $10 cable that’s just as good as Apple’s $30 cable. Then you’ll also obviously need a USB-C wall adapter. We recommend the AUKEY 27W USB-C Charger with Power Delivery 3.0, which is a top-quality wall adapter at a surprisingly low price.
