Apple has been the subject of a lot of criticism from Apple users as well as other smartphone companies for excluding the iPhone 12 charger from the smartphone box. Apple pitches the move as an environmental one but it’s widely criticized nonetheless.
In this article, we’ve provided you with some iPhone 12 charger alternatives. While you can go for the free options but with $14 investment, you get yourself a much-faster charger.
The four new iPhone 12 models recently launched in a much-awaited event on the 14th of October. Apple fans have been waiting for the moment for a long time. Pre-order sales for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models have already begun. Apple is likely to announce the launch sale for the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini models early in November. So, you can grab your high-end new models but this time the box doesn’t come with a lot of items.
To cut down on prices, Apple has not included the usual EarPod and the AC power adapter. However, Apple also launched its new MagSafe wireless charging tech along with a HomePod in the same launch event. Apple also pulled its charger from the Apple Watch models as well this time.
The iPhone 12 charger might be missing but the box still comes with a USB-C Lightning Cable. USB-C is definitely faster but the problem is all of us have spare USB-A type chargers.
So, here are some of the iPhone 12 charger alternatives you can use to support your new iPhone 12.
$0 Option: Existing Wired Or Wireless Charger
You can actually use any charger with your lightning cable as an alternative to your iPhone 12 charger, even your old USB-A type chargers. You can also go for any wireless charger in the market as the phone is compatible to any QI wireless chargers.
$15 Option: New USB-C Charger
You can go for a model that supports both USB-A and C type charging. Also, remember to get a multiple charger. So, within a pocket-friendly budget you can get a new iPhone 12 charger. The RAV ad Aukey models are quite popular.
$20 Option: Cheap Wireless Charger
You can go for Apple’s MagSafe but the price starts from $39. Instead, you can go for any Qi wireless charger and it’ll work fine to act as your new iPhone 12 charger.
$11 Option: Dongle
This is a cheap option if you don’t wish to invest in a new charger. But apart from the free option, getting a wireless charger or a new USB-C charger might be more efficient and time-saving as these take a lot of time to charge. But you can grab these at cheap rates from Amazon.
