You’ll pay $74 to Apple to fast charge your iPhone X, but we’ll show you how to do it for $41

Most smartphones that support fast charging these days ship with a charger that can actually, you know, fast charge. Can the same be said of Apple’s $1,000+ iPhone X? Nope. How about the still-pricey iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Nope, and nope. Apple added fast charging support to all three new iPhone models in 2017, but it still ships them with the same old wall adapter and USB cable. What’s even worse is that if you want to buy a faster wall adapter and a new USB-C cable from Apple, you’ll have to spend another $74 on top of what you already spent on your phone.

Instead of coughing up even more cash than you have to for Apple’s wall adapter, pick up a UGREEN USB Type-C 30W Wall Charger and an Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable for $42 total (actually, it’s only $41.15 while Amazon’s on-site 5% coupon is available). Don’t worry, you can thank us later.
