FAQ About Chargers for iPhone
Why Are Chargers Not Included with New iPhones?
Apple made the decision not to include chargers with new iPhone models to reduce package size and enable faster shipping to users. This move is estimated to reduce over 2 million metric tons of carbon footprint annually. They assume you already have Apple chargers, but fear not, because Anker has you covered!
Can I Use Any Wall Charger for My iPhone?
Not quite. To use a wall charger for your iPhone, you need to ensure compatibility in terms of connectors and power output. For example, traditional USB-C chargers designed for tablets or laptops may not work with iPhones, which require a Lightning port. We recommend using a standard Apple wall charger that supports the Lightning cable or a newer Apple USB-C charger with USB-C to Lightning cables. This will ensure charging within the required voltage and current for efficient charging.
Furthermore, we recommend choosing quality chargers that are Apple-certified, such as MFi (Made for iPhone) Apple USB chargers. Poor-quality chargers may cause damage your iPhone's battery or even pose a fire risk.
What Happens If I Use the Wrong Charger for My iPhone?
Using the wrong charger for your iPhone can result in charging failure, low charging efficiency, reduce the battery life, or compromise your phone's safety. For instance, using chargers with incorrect voltage, such as laptop chargers, can overheat the battery and potentially cause a fire. On the other hand, using a low-current charger may result in slower charging or may not work at all.
It is crucial to use a quality and compatible charger that meets the required standards, such as Anker 737 Charger (GaNPrime 120W), which is certified for charging iPhones, MacBooks, and other relevant devices simultaneously from a single charger.
Is 20W Fast Charging Bad for My iPhone?
No, 20W fast charging is generally safe for iPhones as long as both your iPhone and the Apple 20W charger are non-defective. Many people use the Apple 20W charger for fast charging without negatively affecting the battery's health, lifespan, or causing any other risks. Using these Apple fast chargers can help you charge your iPhone more quickly and efficiently.
You can also consider using quality Apple multi-chargers for fast and simultaneous charging. For example, Anker 735 Charger (GaNPrime 65W) is a 3-in-1 Apple charger that enables charging three devices simultaneously and can power up to 30 minutes faster compared to chargers with a fixed output of 45W + 20W.
Why Do iPhones Sometimes Reject Chargers?
There are several reasons why iPhones may reject chargers and display error notifications:
- The charging port on your iOS device may be dirty or compromised, or the charging cable may not be properly connected.
- The charging accessory you are using could be faulty or damaged, preventing it from delivering the correct current to the iPhone.
- The charger you are using may not be certified by Apple.
To address these possibilities, try cleaning the charging port of your iPhone and ensure that the charging cable is securely connected. Additionally, using Apple-certified chargers can help ensure compatibility and reduce the chances of encountering issues.
