Patrick Henry, the 2nd:
Actually, the 29W charger DOES charge faster, so its completely worth it (especially if you also have an iPad).

This is the most weaselly post from Grubs. Why not include the "big" 10w one in the box and sell a smaller, cheaper one for on-the-go? Cheapness and/or greed. I can't imagine MOST people wouldn't rather have their phone charge a lot faster vs. a slightly bigger block plugged into an outlet.

I assume Gruber carries a purse.

These charging times are much slower than most flagship Android phones. Is there some technology that Apple doesn't want to license?

I hear that “bursting into flames” tech carries high licensing fees.

My phone fully charges in just over an hour. Has never caught on fire. Yet there are some iPhone 8 batteries that are expanding and cracking the case. Apple is just cheap and greedy really.

How much more can it cost them to build a faster charger.. $0.15 per phone?

yawn:
why don't they build the charger into the phone. with a bigger battery. then all you need to carry in your purse is a kettle lead.
