While fast charging on iOS has been possible since the iPhone 8 came out, one of Apple’s proprietary USB-C to Lightning cables was previously required, which is prohibitively expensive for most people. However, for these cables, Apple has recently opened the MFi certification process and we’ve seen a bunch of third-party options hit the market and they’re super affordable. This applies in particular to the 3-foot RAVPower USB-C to Lightning cable, which is only available for $9.99 when entering CNCWLSRC coupon code during checkout. That code works on the black version and takes it lower than we have previously seen it go.
This cable works to quickly charge your iPhone with a compatible USB-C Power Delivery wall charger. Using RAVPower’s USB-C adapter cable will enable you to charge your iPhone in 30 minutes from 0 percent to 50 percent. Fast charging also works on the latest iPad models from Apple. It also works for high-speed data transfers up to 480Mbps as well as supporting fast charging. If you’ve upgraded to a new MacBook and no longer have a full-size USB-A port, these cables are a must. At this price, just keeping around the house, at the office, and in your various travel bags is worth grabbing a few.
With a 30,000 bend lifespan and reinforced connectors, the RAVPower cable should last longer than the Apple version too.
