  • Would this be any good for Type-C power delivery chargers? Or just worth waiting for an official cable release?

  • It is doubtful that this cable will support fast charge (and I am being nice). In fact, a lot of third party USB-C to lightning cables are being discounted at Amazon (and pretty much none of them supports USB-PD / fast charge). Any time you see "suitable for iPhone 8/7s/7/6s/6, iPad", it pretty much means no iPhone 8/X fast charge.

    Quick charging is just marketing trick (since it is not Apple's official term). It could simply imply it will do 5V 2A (which provides zero benefit over the standard lighting to USB (A) cable).

  • If you want to use iPhone 8/X fast charge, you need:

    • Official Apple USB-C to lightning cable (there is currently no known 3rd party cable which is certified to do the same). For USB-PD to operate properly, you need a properly coded cable. Basically, iPhone can identify the cable and decide whether to initiate USB-PD (fast charge).
    • A charger which supports USB-PD. It doesn't have to be an Apple branded one. However, Apple 29W, 61W, and 87W are all supported by iPhone 8/X. There is no real benefit (in terms of charging time) to get 61W or 87W - since iPhone 8/X won't initiate 20V charging. Note that some of the 3rd party USB-PD adapter makers officially do not claim to support USB-C to lightning cable.

    If you also have an iPad Pro 12 inch (first gen), you must use a 29W USB-C charger (61W, and 87W do not support 14.5V - as that's not in the official USB-PD specs). It is unclear to me whether the second gen iPad Pro 10 and 12 inches support 9V on top of 14.5V. If you really want to play it safe, get the 29W adapter.

    Note: Do NOT use any converter. Once you use a converter (i.e. USB-C to USB-A adapter), the USB-PD pins cannot be carried and fast charge (USB-PD) is gone.

    • how about blitzwolf whose recent MF10 ampcore cable says it is MFI certified by apple and can be used for Iphone 8/X?

      • Any lightning to USB-A cable is incapable of supporting USB-PD. The reason is that the required pins for USB-PD to work are only available on USB-C port/socket. USB-A and USB-B have less pins and are physically unable to support USB-PD. USB-C is NOT just about reversible plug, it also introduces USB-PD. USB-C is mandatory for USB-PD to work.

        You will get 5V 2A support with lightning to USB-A cable. You can still use the cable with your iPhone 8, but you don't get fast charge (USB-PD with that cable) regardless of which USB-PD adaptor / charger you use. It is basically just like the included cable you get with your iPhone 8.

        This is something most people probably aren't aware of. You need the correct cable (and you CANNOT use converters at all as they simply drop USB-PD support). It is frustrating that Apple not including that cable with iPhone / iPad.

  • I've got a macbook pro that I want to charge my iphone 6 with. I hope this cable works.

  • If it's not apple certified and I doubt it would be for this price, the device will reject the cable and say "this accessory may not be supported."

    Caveat emptor.

  • I suppose this is fine for charging Airpods using a powerbank?

  • Personally having gotten cheap 1m usb to lightning cables for the mrs, you nkow those 3 packs etc. they break so quickly that it's frustrating. As in they stop charging etc before physically being pulled apart. I'd just pay abit more for the blitzwolf ones (i haven't tried, but have ordered a heap. their other usb ones seem great as i have them). after all 6 or 7 cheap $1-3 ones eventually might as well just get one good $10 one.

    • I agree that most 3rd party USB-A to lightning cables don't last long. However, this is about USB-C to lightning cable. At the moment, Apple official one is the only one that's known to support fast charge (USB-PD).

  • I think this deal has expired. It's listed at $3.35 now.
