5 ways to charge your new iPhone 12

Apple did the unthinkable with the new iPhone 12: It stopped including a charger in the box. The change was made to be better for the environment, but of course it has upset users.

To make matters worse, the cable that comes with the iPhone 12 is Lightning to USB-C. In other words, the part that connects to your phone is the same as always, but the other end will not connect to your old "USB charging brick". You will have to find a new solution, so let's see what options you have.

Old "charging bricks"

The easiest, cheapest and simplest solution to this problem created by Apple arbitrarily is to just buy a "USB-C charging brick". That is, a small piece of plastic that you plug into a socket with a USB-C port for this special Lightning to USB-C cable that you have with your new iPhone 12.

It is not as difficult to obtain as you can imagine. Apple sells one on its electronics store at the price of $ 19. This is the first choice of most users.

Portable chargers

For iPhone 12 users who like to go out all the time (as much as we can in the current conditions), a portable charger is a must. Portable chargers are available in many different sizes, shapes and sizes possibilities. But for our purposes, we will obviously focus on USB-C models that are iPhone friendly.

Anker and Aukey will offer decent options at very affordable rates Prices. The Anker PowerCore Slim has a capacity of 10.000 mAh along with USB-C and standard USB ports and costs $ 30. For the same price, you can get an Aukey 8.000mAh charger with a USB-C port and two of the older USB ports.

"Power towers"

This category is for people who are interested in managing their cables. If you are willing to spend some money and rearrange some cables, a USB-C tower can change your life.

The $ 30 NVEESHOX option, for example, has nine outlets, three standard USB ports and one USB-C port. Aukey has a $ 50 model with 12 outlets, three USB ports and two full USB-C ports.


To coincide with the launch of the iPhone 12, Apple has reintroduced the "MagSafe" brand previously used in chargers MacBook before switching to USB-C. MagSafe is coming to life again, this time as a fast wireless charger for the iPhone 12, because AirPower was never released. Its price will be $ 39.

Third party wireless chargers

Do not be fooled by Apple's branding with MagSafe for iPhone 12: Any Qi-based wireless charger will work. In other words, if you've already used a wireless charging keyboard, it's going to work with the iPhone 12. It just can't charge as fast as MagSafe. For example, Anker sells a basic wireless charger for $ 11,95.
