Here’s how to fast-charge your iPhone for under $40, instead of the $74 Apple charges

Apple’s new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X all support new fast charging technology that refuels your phone much faster than any previous-generation iPhone models. The problem, however, is that Apple doesn’t actually ship with a fast charger, just the old slow one from last year’s iPhone models. If you want to fast-charge your iPhone, you’ll need to buy two different items. First, you’ll need a USB-C to Lightning cable, which costs $25 from Apple. Next, you’ll need a USB-C wall adapter, which costs $49 from Apple. Of course, you can save a ton of money by picking up a UGREEN USB Type-C 30W Wall Charger on Amazon instead. Use the coupon code UGREEN15 at checkout and you’ll pay just $14.44. That means your total cost will be $39.44 instead of $74!

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • 30W USB C Power Delivery Charging: The UGREEN 30W(5V/3A, 9V/2A, 15V/2A or 20V/1.5A) USB‑C Power Adapter is equipped with advanced PD technology and provides fast charging for any of your USB Type C-enabled device(USB C cable or lightning to usb c cable is not included ).
