    Default 15 Minute Full Charge

    This power pack can charge an iPhone to 100% in 15 minutes. This battery pack will charge your iPhone 6 from 0 to 100% in a matter of minutes

    I'm curious what side effects will be found with these rapid charge accessories...I'd love to believe it's just a safe, fast option, but something tells me there's a downside of some sort.

    That's the first thing that came to my mind as well!

    Too much amperage too fast going into a lightning port can fry IC chips... that's a problem with poorly made 3rd party chargers/cables. Caveat emptor.

    Science says this will probably not be good for your battery.

    Plus, you can use 2amp charges with the iPhone anyway and it still takes more than 15 minutes.

    If its Apple approved I will probably get it. Too bad it wasn't a wall charger though.

    The iPad charger will charge the iPhone faster than the standard cable that came with the phone, so I'd use that if I needed a quicker charge. I would be very cautious if I used that case though, could cause some damage.

    Exactly ....I was thinking the same thing. My guess is that it would shorten battery life in the long run.

    That doesn't sound like it would be good for the battery in the long run.

    Sounds like the Droid Turbo's voodoo charging tech

    Any info on what it does to the battery in the long run? I mean ... I assume there is a reason why this kind of things are not coming yet in default

    I think Apple will develop rapid charging on their own just like the competition has done and I think we'll see it this year in the 's' series of devices. It certainly is a nice feature that enjoy daily.

    I honestly don't understand the new hype droid created over rapid charging.

    I don't really care about it.

    It's just another nice convenience, certainly nothing earth-shattering.

    Maybe it's me, but I don't have a problem with the time it currently takes to charge my iPhone because normally, I charge it overnight while I'm asleep.

    I think it's more of a benefit to heavy (android?) users that may not be getting all-day and all-evening battery life. However, seems like it'd have to be super heavy use.
