What you need to know about charging your iPhone 8
The iPhone 8 is one of the best smartphones available right now even amidst the iPhone X devices. Not everyone wants a full touchscreen device or an overly large screen. If you happen to own an iPhone 8 and happen to be looking for charging solutions while you’re on the go, there are plenty of options available that allow you to plug your phone to your car. While a power bank might be a safe bet, if you have a car with charging features, there is no need to carry a hefty power bank around.
The first thing you need to check is if you have a USB charging port in your car. If you do, simply buy a USB to Lightning cable and you are set. There is a small catch however, not all USB ports are capable of delivering the same amount of power. Some car chargers can be really slow at charging your devices. In that case, you can always upgrade to a better power port for faster charging speeds. Some charging ports also offer additional features like audio ports, mic-in ports and more. If you do not need the extra features, you can always opt for something more barebones.
One thing you need to keep in mind is that leaving your power port on all the time can be a hassle. However, this is an issue only on cheaper devices. High-quality produces draw power only when your iPhone or other devices are plugged in. It makes sense to invest in products that control power flow as you do not want your expensive iPhone to be damaged due to carelessness or cheap peripherals.
Some modern car chargers also come with Qi wireless charging which is the international standard for wireless charging at the moment. All you need to do is place your iPhone on the charging mat and you will be able to charge your phone wirelessly. Simply remove the phone when you are done and you’re all set.
