The iPhone 12 series have been in the market for over a week. If we can all agree on something regarding this phone, it is the battery. Whether it is the battery size or charging capacity, it is far below current trends in the industry. In addition, the iPhone 12 series does not come with a charging kit – no charger adapter or cable. Buyers of this phone will have to buy the charger adapter and cable separately. This is exactly why third-party charging kit makers need to step up their game. The Anker 20W fast charging kit for iPhone 12 series is now official.
The Anker 20W fast charging kit includes six new products. The kit includes three charging adapters, two charging cables, and one wireless charger. Of course, the adapters and cables all come with different specifications. What we know about these devices is that the charging capacity is no less than 20W. According to the company, the pre-sale will officially commence on November 4th.
According to the company, the Anker 20W fast charging kit can charge iPhone 12 by 50% in the first 30 minutes. This is only two minutes short of the original Apple 20W charging adapter. One of the cables in the kit is a fast-charging cable “Lightning interface” cable which adopts an integrated design and has passed 12,000 bending tests.
Anker 20W fast charging kit: an all-in-one kit
Recall that Apple is currently using the MagSafe 15W wireless charger. If the Anker wireless charger is up to 20W, it will be a plus. The iPhone 12 can be charged to 50% in 28 minutes with Apple’s 20W USB-C charger. However, it takes 1 hour to use the original MagSafe wireless charger to get to 50%. This is quite slow.
The 20W USB-C power adapter in the Apple Store is currently priced at 149 yuan ($22). The USB-C to Lightning cable at the Apple Store is priced from 145 yuan ($22) to 272 yuan ($41). If the power adapter and data cable are available, you need at least 294 yuan ($44) to buy official accessories. Alternatively, you can choose third-party accessories, they would be cheaper. As of now, we do not have the official price of the Anker 20W fast charging kit. However, this kit should be cheaper.
