Yup Anker and also Rav Power are great for fast charging. And great prices too.

Send it back to Amazon! Those cables that are iffy right out of the box need to cost the manufacturers. Sometimes they're great, but there's not much UL testing going on.

recently stuck in the ICU for a few weeks I missed 
a couple calls. So I guess I need it to work properly.





can you "factory reset" the phone?

No it won't even bother to vibrate. The screen comes on and says who's calling (if it knows) and slide to answer but I'm not always looking at my phone. When I was in the hospital, it was such a stephen king terror dump that they put the hospital phone where i couldn't reach it. If i was lucky a nurse might notice that the phone was ringing forever and come get it for me. Those sadistic, pig shit nazis. Don't have a heart attack around here. You would. not. believe. what. they. did. to. me.

If you are using it during these days, it's fine to leave it on the charger. The battery will top off and then just float charge, and it will really be using energy from the charger. It's the cycling that's bad. You don't want to take it off for a couple hours, then throw it back on when you get to your desk, then take it off for the next meeting/walk in the wilderness/stake out...  Charge it up, use a decent percentage of your capacity, then charge up again. 

Usually overnight charging is the best solution for most people.

So I won't go much over a day and then just let it st until she needs more juicing I guess.

Not if you have an Apple Watch. It then bypasses face ID.

Battery guy here.  Lithium Ion batteries (the flavor found in your phones) are really great tech. They don't care about being deep cycled (although you should avoid taking them all the way to zero - I recommend 15-25% as a floor).   They do care about the number of cycles though. It is overall better to let them discharge deeper (down to say 30%) and then recharge, than to discharge to 80% and then charge back to 100% 3-4 times (power use isn't linear, so one drop of 70% isn't equal to two drops of 35%). 

There are also a lot of other variables including discharge rate, temperature recharge rate, and manufacturing variances. A difference in battery health of 10% between two phones that have seen similar use really isn't surprising at all.

20 volts. Can it charge in a car? If not keep those old paper maps handy.
 
like sfw mentions below, i think they are backward compatible
i have the 11pro max and it charges just fine on a qi (including in my ride)

as for the battery comment from b321
i'm pretty sure the batteries won't take more than the max charge that they are designed for
maybe someone who knows can weigh in and confirm

The old chargers work just as before, just not for "fast charging."


"As part of our efforts to reach our environmental goals, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini do not include a power adapter or EarPods. Included in the box is a USB‑C to Lightning Cable that supports fast charging and is compatible with USB‑C power adapters and computer ports.
We encourage you to re‑use your current USB‑A to Lightning cables, power adapters, and headphones, which are compatible with these iPhone models. But if you need any new Apple power adapters or headphones, they are available for purchase."



Yes they work, but i recall hearing from one an apple store employees not to use an old charger as it can cause the batter to fade quicker?
