I’m sure you’re aware that iPhones have supported fast charging since the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X were launched last year. However, for some reason Apple is determined to not ship a fast charger with its expensive iPhones that it thinksĀ people are getting for a low price after all.

So if you’ve taken the step of buying a fast charger, I’m pretty sure you’re now looking for a USB-C to Lightning cable for actually charging your phone with the fast charger because iPhones use USB Power Delivery and that’s only on USB-C (hah!). Well, if you’re wondering which cable to buy, let us help you out.

1. MoArmouz USB-C to Lightning Cable

The MoArmouz USB-C to Lightning cable is the best cable you can get online right now. It offers all the features of the Apple official lightning cable, but it also comes with a nice nylon braiding that makes it considerably stronger than the official Apple cable. It can charge your iPhone just as fast as the official cable, and it’s available on Amazon with a 1 year limited warranty as well.

2. Rock USB-C to Lightning Cable

The Rock USB-C to Lightning cable is another fast charging compatible cable that you can check out. The cable supports fast charging with all USB Power Delivery fast chargers, so you can rest assured that it’ll charge your iPhone XS or XS Max really quickly. Along with that, this cable is also the most affordable one here at just Rs. 699 and that’s definitely pretty great.

3. Rock USB-C PD 18W Fast Charging Set

This other option from Rock is worth considering too since it’s not just a USB-C to Lightning cable, but is actually a full set that you’ll need for fast charging. In this set you’ll get an 18W USB-C Power Delivery fast charger along with a USB-C to Lightning cable. However, do note that at 18W you won’t get the same charging speeds you’d get with a 30W fast charger and compatible cable. That said, for the price of Rs. 1,599 this is an amazing package.

4. Mcdodo USB-C to Lightning Cable

There’s also the Mcdodo USB-C to Lightning cable that you can consider buying for your fast charging needs. This cable also supports full fast charging for the iPhone XS so it will definitely charge your iPhone pretty damn fast with a 30W fast charger. However, it’s really expensive for no good reason, which is why it’s the fourth recommendation on this list.

5. Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable

Obviously, you can go with an Apple official USB-C to Lightning cable for charging your phone. After all, you’re pretty much guaranteed the fastest charging speeds with this cable. However, the problem here is that the cable isn’t available online in India right now. At least not officially; you could get it on Amazon for Rs. 7000 but that’s not the brightest thing to do. Instead, you can head over to your nearest authorized Apple reseller, and get it from there if they have it. I asked around for the cable, but I wasn’t able to get it. However, maybe you’ll have better luck.

  1. Mo Armouz cable does not work. Worst product and worst article. You didn’t even test these cables, didn’t you?

  2. Did you test the Mo Armouz cable personally whether it fast-charges or not? What power adapter did you use to test – 5W? 12W? 29W? 61W? 87W?

    • I bought the #1 option in this article, the MoArmouz USB-C to Lightning Cable. What a waste of money. It takes 30 mins to charge 25% – with a 61W USB-C adapter that came with my MacBook Pro. Why the heck do you post articles without even personally testing yourself? Don’t fool people man.
