Double Your Charging Speed, With The iPhone 8
Apple stated upon the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus’ release, that the devices are capable of “fast charging” from 0% to 50% battery in just 30 minutes. The only caveat was that in order to do so, users were mandated to use a specific power adapter in conjunction with a USB-C lighting charging cable to do so. It should also be noted, that both of these are not included with the iPhone 8.
Regardless, this data recovery Los Angeles based business believes this feature is a great bonus feature if you are able to get your hands on the right equipment.
This being said, one overarching question still stands: just how much faster can the iPhone 8 Plus charge its battery compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 7 Plus?
Recent tests were conducted that pinned the charging speeds of the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus against each other utilizing a 29-watt power adapter. In the test, both devices batteries were drained to 0%. The devices were then put in Airplane mode and the brightness lowered to 50%.
- The iPhone 8 Plus reached a battery percentage of 27 in just 15 minutes, finishing at 54% at the 30-minute mark.
- The iPhone 7 Plus reached 15% at the 15-minute mark, finishing at 29% at the 30-minute mark.
Based on the study, it can be concluded that the iPhone 7 Plus has a charge rate of around 1% per minute charged, while the iPhone 8 Plus has almost doubled, charging at 1.8% per minute. This being said, it can be concluded that Apple’s promise of “faster charging” for the iPhone 8 Plus is more than apparent.
Zero to 100
Taking the study one step further, research was performed where both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 were drained to zero and charged to 100%. The results are as follows:
- The iPhone 8 reached 100% in just 1 hour and 50 minutes.
- The iPhone 7 on the other hand, reached 100% in 2 hours and 32 minutes.
This being said, it can be concluded that Apple’s promise of “faster charging” for the iPhone 8 Plus is more than apparent. With all the skeptics littering the internet with videos and articles slandering the company for false promises, it can be hard for you as a consumer to get an accurate gauge of what features function as promised and what features do not.
