    I'm I the only one still using a 5w charging brick for my 11 pro max? I do not like fast charging my phone at all. Even now how the battery lasts so long, I don't need to fast charge.

    Nope. I use mine for overnight charging every night on my Twelve South Charging Stand.

    I used the charging brick that came with the pro max and my phone was getting warm so I never used that brick anymore. I don't even use wireless charging with my phone

    I wouldn’t obsess over it. Whether 5W or 18W from Apple, you’re fine.

    Apple isn't perfect for the first time fast charger in the box. I will go with my gut feeling and use the 5w

    What is there “not to like” about fast charging your phone? How could one possibly not like that? I can see being indifferent to it but to not like it?

    Yes, I use my fast charger. I had one prior to the 11 Pro that I used for my X. Now I’ve got two and I use them whenever available. But I don’t avoid the 5W one if that’s all I’ve got around.

    I am using a 5w charger for my iPhone X. It works perfectly fine, the battery stays all day long. I'm very happy with my iPhone X.

    What do you mean?
    I don’t say not to trust your gut, but it is wrong about Apple’s fast charger.

    I still use the 5W charger that I’ve always used. I don’t need fast charging because I put my phone on the charger overnight while I sleep.

    FYI: My phone right now has 85% battery left and it’s been off the charger for over 13 hours! I am very pleased with my iPhone 11 Pro Max.

    I agree. After years of complaints about the lack of a fast charger in the box or fast charging abilities, this is confusing (obviously the majority of iPhone users will be happy with the fast charger).

    How does fast charging have any cons?

    I’m one of those people who primarily uses the 5W charging block to charge my iPhone because I typically charge it overnight. I have used the iPad charger and a couple of wireless chargers and they all worked well.

    Because the battery life for me generally last all day and I have plenty of batter life left even when I go to bed, a fast charger isn’t necessary - ‘for me’.

    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with people using fast chargers and if you have a need for it, use it. Period.

    I agree. I was excited to hear the new Pro Max cane with the fast charging block, however, the battery lasts so long that I have only used the fast charger once since I got my phone on release day.

    I’ve yet to use it and it is still in the box that my iPhone 11 Pro Max came in along with the earbuds.

    The charging cable and brick I was previously using are still in mint condition so I’m going to keep using them until they no longer works....

    I think people put way too much thought into charging a damn phone. Plug it in or place it on a charger. If the phone is defective replace it.

    I use the charger that came with my promax. No issues. I just enjoy the phone. I don’t stress over charging details.

    My long lost brother right here.

    I’m the same. I believe that people overthink on these things. It’s charging a phone battery. Who really cares. If it screws it up within a year, get it replaced for free and call it a day.
