Based on what I've read online, the USB-C fast charging is not that significantly faster than using the traditional USB iPad charger. Is that really the case for others? If that's true, it doesn't seem to make much sense in spending $12 for a cable plus more for a charger, when you can get lightning to USB cables for half that and 2.4A chargers for way less than USB-C chargers.

i've been using anker products since 2015. in that time i have accumulated probably ~35 cords and a whole mass of wall adapters, power banks, and car chargers. i have had two failures ever, a 10ft lightning cable, and a power bank had an led that stopped working. both times anker sent me a replacement free of charge via 2 day shipping. i have two of the upgraded versions of this cable, one for the car and one for home. it supports 12v at 1.5amps as tested with my usb meter. fast charges my iphone XS max and my 2017 10.5 ipad pro with no issues. you will not find tougher cords out there.
Can I ask, I also have an iphone XS Max and am wondering: do you (are we even able to) fast charge your phone wirelessly? More importantly, which brick/power cube/whatever the actual box that you plug into your wall is called do you personally use? Is there a specific anker one which would be good? I want the best possible "fast/quick charge" setup available for my iphone.

I don't do wireless charging really, but as for the brick, any of anker' s USB C adapters with usb PD 18W or higher will fast charge Apple devices!

Sorry for ignorance, but is it necessary to spend that much on a cable? Don't get me wrong, I've used Anker products before and am satisfied with their quality. But there seems to be quite a few usb c to lightning cable on newegg or other reputable stores for $3. They might not as good as Anker brand. But do you think Anker cable will last 3-4 times long as the cheaper ones?
If you get a bad USB-A cable you are out the cable. If you get a bad USB-C cable it can fry your device. It's becoming less of an issue but still something you want to consider.

You're right. There's only a certain amount of time where it uses the actual 18w to charge. Then after x time, it charges like the rest. I think In the tests it was like a saving of 10-20 minutes for a total charge.

Yeah, I read something like that. I mean if someone wants to spend extra for saving 10-20 minutes that perfectly fine. I didn't mean to sound like a smart you-know-what. Based on the downvote, it looks like some people took what I said the wrong way.

There's a time and place for fast charging. Overnight there's no reason to use quick charges, but what if you're at 30% and you were heading out the door in 30mins?

Of course I get that completely. I was thinking of it mainly as a 0-100% type of use case where the quick charging on iPhone is limited. Based on the tests I saw, this charger is best for 45 min or less cases. Even then for someone like me, the difference between 35% and 50% in half an hour isn't that big of a deal.

https://www.macworld.com/article/...pters.html

But I get others who need that. Personally, I just wish the advantages were better like the QC chargers with Android, but I've heard those have problems with phones overheating and causing the battery to wear out. I don't have Android, so I don't know for sure. I have so many of the USB A to Lightning connectors and chargers that it would be a huge cost to replace a lot of that, only to find myself replacing them again when the next best thing comes out from Apple like USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to a new proprietary connector that offers even faster charging (knowing Apple I could totally see this latter scenario being more likely).

Again, not criticizing anybody who wants to save the time using USB C. If you haven't already invested in 2.4 A chargers like iPad ones or other branded ones, then I would totally jump on USB C, especially now that the new iPhone Pro models have that included.

edit:
If anyone should be criticized, it's the ones who still use 5 W chargers to charge their iPhones outside of overnight charging. I can't imagine charging an iPhone X or higher with one of those. It's beyond ridiculous that Apple still gives 5 W chargers with the non-Pro model.

It definitely would be ridiculous to replace all your cables w/ this, esp as you say when standards aren't set in stone. For me, an old usb 5-port charger wore out and a new one I switched it out w/ has a single PD port, so I've moved that to the kitchen area where we sometimes charge our phone during the day. This will more or less take care of the 'need 30-50% in a jiffy' situation that I do actually run into.
