While fast charging has been possible on iOS since the iPhone 8 came out, it previously required one of Apple's proprietary USB-C to Lightning cables that are prohibitively expensive for most people. However, Apple recently opened up the MFi certification process for these cables and we've seen a bunch go third-party options hit the market and they are super affordable. That's especially true for the 3-foot RAVPower USB-C to Lightning cable (opens in new tab) which is available for just $9.97 this Prime Day. You can also get the 6-foot version (opens in new tab) for just $11.74.
Modern iPhone devices support fast charging, and this is the cable you need to unlock it. Right now, it's under $10 for the first time too.
$13.99 $4 off
Available in black (opens in new tab) or white (opens in new tab), the cable works with a compatible USB-C Power Delivery wall charger (opens in new tab) to fast charge your iPhone. Using RAVPower's cable with a USB-C adapter will allow you to charge your iPhone from 0% to 50% in 30 mins. Fast charging also works on Apple's newest iPad models. As well as supporting fast charging, it also works for high-speed data transfers up to 480Mbps. If you've upgraded to a newer MacBook and don't have a full-size USB-A port anymore, these cables are an absolute necessity. At this price, it's worth grabbing a few just to keep around the house, at the office, and in your various travel bags. The RAVPower cable should last longer than Apple's version (opens in new tab) too with a 30,000 bend lifespan and reinforced connectors.
