These are the Best Fast Chargers for the Apple iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max in Fall 2021: Anker, Belkin, and more!
With the iPhone 12 series, Apple removed power adapters from the retail box. So unless you have a wall charger lying around, you’ll need a power adapter in case you buy any of the iPhone 12 models, including the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Since you have to buy a wall charger for your iPhone, it’s better to get a fast charger, considering that when you’re rushing out the door with low battery on your iPhone, fast chargers can come in handy.
Apple supports fast charging on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, like every other iPhone since 2017. The company uses the USB Power Delivery (PD) fast charging standard, which is fairly common and is even supported by Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+/ 5.
The iPhone 12 series models can be charged up to around 22W (Apple recommends 20W chargers). With a compatible fast charger, your iPhone will reach 50% of battery in 30 minutes. To help you choose a fast charger for your iPhone 12 Pro Max or iPhone 12 Pro, we’ve carefully selected some of the best USB PD fast chargers on the market. These fast chargers can work with iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini as well.
Before we start, it’s important to note that none of the fast chargers mentioned below include a USB Type-C to Lightning Cable. Fortunately, the iPhone 12 series comes with a compatible cable in the box but if you need an extra cable, the official Apple cable or Mophie’s USB-C to Lightning cable are two good options.
- The Belkin BoostCharge PRO is incredibly slim and can come in handy at places where you don’t have much space to plug in a charger. Its form factor also makes it great for travel. You’ll get a single USB Type-C port on it that's capable of up to 20W output.
- Spigen’s 40W ArcStation Pro is a great USB PD charger if you're looking to charge two devices simultaneously. It can also be used with the MacBook Air. You’ll get 30W of fast charging when charging only one device with it. The per port output reduces to 20W when both ports are being used.
- The Ugreen USB C charger is a great option for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. It can deliver 20W of power to the iPhones and any other USB PD-compatible smartphone. In addition, the charger can work with Quick Charge 4.0+ and older Quick Charge fast charging standards.
- If you are looking for a no-frills and compact fast charger for your iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max, this is an excellent option from Spigen. It can deliver up to 27W of power, making it an excellent charger for not just iPhones, but other USB PD smartphones as well.
These are some of the best USB PD fast chargers for iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max that you can buy right now. As you can see, there are plenty of fast charger options for your iPhone. Apple’s official charger and the Belkin 25W charger are great options if you don’t need more than one port. The Spigen ArcStation Pro is perfect for couples as they let you charge two phones simultaneously. Last of all, the Anker PowerDrive III Duo is more than powerful for your in-car needs.
